To Whom it may concern,
Let me introduce my self, my name is Toni Tarantino, I am graduated in Jazz and Classic Piano, between Italy and Groningen, arranger, producer and polystrumentist.
I've been studying and performing classical and jazz music, until the day i got a offer as Keyboard/trumpet player from a reggae band in Jamaica, then i started playing around the world ,and recording in big studios!
Since 2009, I have been working in studios (Tuff Gong, Oufah, Shang Studio in Kingston, JAM) and I have been performing live in keyboards and trumpet with Alborosie, who is a Jamaican recording artist, experience has brought me all over Europe in all of the most important festivals including West America, Hawaii, Costarica, Mexico, and all south america .
I have included a few examples of the live performances and studio/arrangement collaborations I have worked for.
Most of the following works are reggae pop or hip hop, but ready for auditions to play Jazz and original composition in all the stiles!
