David N. Baker. Amanti thus achieved a master's degree in jazz studies. After finishing his studies, Amanti decided to focus on finding a personal balance between musical tradition and jazz experimental approaches. Amanti has recently finished his first commercial album, Jazzcello,, which has placed among the Italian iTunes Top 10. In Jazzcello, Amanti keeps both classical and jazz inspirations constantly in balance through improvisation and the use of electronic sound art to create the illusion of a string ensemble, a percussion ensemble, and/or a rhythm section. Amanti is currently living in Berlin, Germany where he is writing and recording film scores, collaborating as guest teacher at the Jazz Institute Berlin, and working with the sound-branding team, Metadesign, AG. Lucio Amanti has performed and collaborated with Luis Bacalov, David N. Baker (Conductor), Aldo Ciccolini, David Sanchez, Ricardo Lorenz, Roberto de Simone, among others. Testimonials to Lucio Amanti's artistry and musicianship: I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with this fine young man.
~Dr. David N. Baker, Conductor He is a serious, dedicated musician and I am convinced of his potential to succeed. I strongly support his quest.
~Dr. Janos Starker He marks a very interesting path to discover the enormous potential of an instrument typically classical, very well used also into the jazz. ~Marco Losavio You don't sound like a cellist that plays jazz you sound like a jazz musician that plays cello. ~A.
