New Release From Italian Guitarist Luca di Luzio, “Never Give Up”



Italian guitarist Luca di Luzio puts a Mediterranean jazz twist on his latest album, Never Give Up.

A jazz guitar graduate of the Conservatorio di Musica Frescobaldi, di Luzio showcases his pulling power with an all-star group that features trumpet legend Randy Brecker alongside keyboard player George Whitty, bassist Alain Caron, drummer Rodney Holmes and percussionist Steve Thornton. The ensemble tackles an array of styles united by di Luzio’s guitar-centric compositional voice

The warm, punchy sound of his classic jazz archtop, driving funk/rock drumming, Brecker’s powerful trumpet tone, a wide array of keyboard and synth textures, and bubbling percussion grooves come together to deliver a confident,  and relaxed interpretation of lyrical, contemporary jazz. 

Produced by George Whitty, syncopated horn lines, gentle finger-plucked nylon guitars, and acoustic piano sounds are layered over energetic live performances.

Almost programmatic in nature, “Never Give Up” is a collection of songs that reflect the personal stories of di Luzio’s life.
