Roberto Sassi | Back

Italian guitarist Roberto Sassi is one of a remarkable group of European improvisers who have made their mark on the London scene since the turn of the century. He works in various combinations with saxophonist Ricardo Tejero, and is also an integral part of Roland Ramanan's brilliant quartet VOLE.

Although influenced by the late Derek Bailey, Sassi also draws on the energy of rock, with an often frantic delivery that overlays extraordinarily detailed note choices and rhythmic fracturings. A genuine original.
