Pianists and Keyboardists
Antonio Faraò, one of the most interesting jazz pianists of the last generation, has become an official “Yamaha Artist” “I'm not often surprised by the recordings of musicians the way I was overwhelmed the ﬁrst time I heard Antonio Faraò on one of his recent CD's. What amazed me was what I felt inside of me. There is so much warmth, conviction and power to his playing. I was immediately attracted to his harmonic conception, the joy of his rhythms and swing feel and the grace and ingenuity of his melodic improvisational lines. Antonio is not only a ﬁne pianist but a great one.” (Herbie Hancock)
