At the age of six, wanting to become a singer, Stefano Bollani would accompany himself on the family keyboard. A few years later, he recorded a cassette of himself singing and playing, which he sent to his idol Renato Carosone, along with a letter explaining his dream. Carosone replied advising him to listen to a lot of blues and jazz, and so Bollani did. His first record was the second volume of the jazz encyclopaedia published by Fratelli Fabbri. At age 11, he enrolled at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory of Florence, where he received his diploma in piano in 1993. At age 15, he tread the boards professionally, playing mostly pop, at the same time studying under Luca Flores, Mauro Grossi, and Franco D'Andrea whose seminars he attended at Siena Jazz. In 1996, he met Enrico Rava at the Teatro Metastasio in Prato who immediately invited him to play in Paris with him: read more...

ECM about "Piano Solo" (edit):

“I've rarely met an improvising musician with such a strong sense of structure and form.” Thus ECM producer Manfred Eicher, speaking of the pianist Stefano Bollani. Having made remarkable appearances on the albums of his former mentor Enrico Rava (“Easy Living”, “Tati”), Bollani now makes his ECM début as soloist. His outstanding technique, stylistic versatility and sharp wit have made the 34-year-old Italian highly successful in his own country. But his international prestige too is growing steadily with well-received tours and concert appearances on both sides of the Atlantic.
“Piano Solo”, however, marks a new stage of artistic maturity: 16 terse miniatures combine spontaneity with melodic flow, lightning virtuosity with refined melancholy, to form a grand and unbroken arch.
Here Bollani blends experiences from diverse musical milieus into a distinctive and homogenous personal voice, offering an almost encyclopedic array of styles and inflections.
