Artist with an unmistakable style, at the age of 4 he studies piano and accordion and today boasts a 50-year career, during which he has released as many albums. The collaborations with famous artists are very numerous, in 1980 he met Astor Piazzolla, who advised him to create the French style "New Musette".
Yes, it's him, the Bastianich of Masterchef. From the meeting between the entrepreneur-singer-musician and the Neapolitan group, a mix of suggestions, genres and melodies is born that act as a bridge between American folk/bluegrass and Mediterranean sounds.
In a short time the name of Matteo Mancuso has already traveled around the globe. The unique guitar technique of him shocks for cleanliness and precision and ranges in various musical genres with total ease. Al Di Meola says of him: “An absolute talent, it would take to me two or three lives to learn how to improvise so well on the guitar”.
Local artists will perform at the opening of the evenings: Domenico Guastafierro Latin Jazz Attraction 4tet, Sax Maniacs and Nica Acoustic Trio.
The Lemonjazz Festival was born in 2012 from an idea of artistic director Mario Mormone. It takes place in the splendid Villa Fiornetino in Sorrento. The first edition was crowned by the likes of Avio Travel, Claudio Jr De Rosa 4tet with Alfredo Rodriguez Trio, James Taylor Quartet, Livio Minafra with Javier Girotto & Aires Tango and Billy Cobham accompanied by Stanley Jordan and Christian Galvez. Already in the first edition there was great appreciation from the public. The success of this event was confirmed in the second edition, which had as guests Stanley Clarke, Roy Hargrove, Yellowjackets. Gegè Telesforo and the Bobo Trio also took the stage. There was no shortage of participation from local companies and artists. Thanks to this mix, the festival has continued to gain appreciation and followers. The third edition is in 2019 when a sensational programme once again creates an extraordinary event. Jazzmeia Horn, Francesco Cafiso 4tet, Scott Henderson Trio, Doug Lawrence with John Trentacosta and Tuck & Patti take the stage. The audience turnout reaffirms its success, such for Lemonjazz 2022.
