A native of Vigevano, Italy, Rossano graduated from the Italian Conservatory and began  his musical career at the age of 18 by joining the “Milano Jazz Gang”, one of Europe’s historic bands.  An accomplished stride pianist, Rossano grew up listening to Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller and  Ralph Sutton, whom he met shortly before the elder’s death. However, his pianistic style also pays  homage to the swing and bebop eras. He cites Earl Hines, Teddy Wilson, Bud Powell, Tommy Flanagan,  Ellis Larkins, Red Garland, Wynton Kelly and Bill Evans as a few of his influences. His mentor, bebop  pianist Barry Harris, says “Rossano makes me smile when he plays.” On occasion, the jazz legend has  invited him to the stage to play on his gigs, touting Rossano as “the best stride pianist” he’s ever heard. Rossano has performed with many of the world’s finest jazz luminaries.
