Born in 1975 in Milan, Italy Tommaso started playing the saxophone and studying music at the age of 18. He moved to the United Kingdom in 1994 where he graduated at Birmingham Conservatoire with a Bmus 1st class honours and later at the Guildhall School Of Music and Drama with a Postgraduate Degree in jazz studies in the year 2000. He has performed with some of the most respected jazz musicians including Billy Cobham, David Liebman, Kenny Wheeler, Stan Sulzmann, Jim Mullen, Jonathan Gee, Fabrizio Bosso, Paolo Fresu, Laurence Cottle. In the year 2004 he collaborated with award winning Oscar composer Dario Marianelli ( ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘The Atonement’ ) recording music for ‘This Little Life’, a BBC drama for Channel Four.

'As opposed to my previous projects, I decided I wanted to create a 'Live' recording session that worked as a jam session by performing some of my favourite Jazz standards and tunes that include a variety of styles of music from past to present composers and not only confined to the Jazz tradition, including music by Charlie Parker, Sam Jones, Bobby Timmons, Chick Corea, Michel Petrucciani but also by composers such as Ennio Morricone, StevieWonder, Pino Daniele.
