Allen Giardinelli's international and widely varied musical background shows in the great versatility of his music making.
He grew up traveling the world & living in over 35 countries with his musician parents. His father was a prog rocker turned producer/talent scout for European RCA and his mother a classical violinist.
Al's story reads like a strange wandering through juxtaposed musical worlds. The result is a unique and highly versatile player, equally at home playing the howling electric blues of Hendrix & Buddy Guy or the crying bottleneck of Blind Willie Johnson, as he is capable of authentic Jazz vocabulary. "Standing on the shoulders of giants" & a lifetime student of the guitar in all its forms Allen has studied with guitar greats from around the world.
Tonight in a trio format he plays jazz standards on an Archtop guitar. Expect to hear echos of Django Reinhardt, Joe Pass, Barney Kessel & Charlie Byrd. He is accompanied on drums by longtime touring & Nashville session drummer Eric Pollard, and on upright bass by Dave Captein, an underground legend in the Portland jazz scene & Oregon Music Hall Of Fame inductee.
