Styles: Italy, Post-Bop
Instruments: Piano

Extraordinary Italian pianist Antonio Faraу was born in Rome in 1965. He attended the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan in the '80s, where his musical gifts were refined. Faraу began cultivating his profound love of jazz music at active jazz clubs when he was only in his teens. Even then, those around him didn't miss the natural talent for piano the young man had been blessed with. Faraу started touring at an early age, playing in festivals like Lugano, Merano, Lyon, Umbria Jazz, Palermo, and many others. In 1987, at only 22, he won the New Talent Prize at the X1 Music Review. Four years later, he was voted Pianist of the Year, winning the Four Roses Prize. In 1998, he was invited to enter into the international competition for the Concours Martial Solal. Faraу came away as the winner. In 1999, Faraу saw the release of his debut album under the ENJA Records label, Black Inside. Bassist Ira Coleman and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts accompanied Faraу's piano work. With post-bop tracks like "Latin Dance," "Sweet," and "My One and Only Love," the album combined a Mediterranean touch with the African-American jazz styling that Faraу has become known for. A sophomore effort entitled Thom followed in early 2001.
