A band born recently created by Alberto Pibiri alias "Al Pepper" jazz piano player originally from Sardinia, Italy, and now based in New York. The band is inspired by the great music of Dr. John and Herb Alpert plus original tunes written by Al Pepper. The music is a fun combination between swing, blues and New Orleans. Alberto Pibiri's first piano studies date back to childhood, when he was a pupil of the great jazz pianist, Luca Mannutza. This experience, in addition to teaching classical piano, gave him great determination and passion for music. Alberto's talent and enthusiasm, in fact, led him to apply to the Conservatory Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, where he completed his studies in five years––instead of the usual ten required for the classical piano curriculum. During these years, Alberto's interest in jazz grew, thanks to his friendship and musical collaboration with a number of outstanding musicians, including Vittorio Sicbaldi, Alessandro Atzori, Gianrico Manca, and Carlo Ditta and Sandro Mura. During this time, he was also selected to perform as piano soloist with the orchestra of the conservatory.
