In the photo, taken at Palazzo Brancaccio (Rome), the pianist Enrico Pieranunzi at the age of six.
Enrico Pieranunzi began studying the piano at the age of five. He is introduced from early adolescence to blues and to jazz improvisation from father Alvaro, among the first blues guitarists in Italy. Gradually, the young Pieranunzi formed his jazz language by listening to 78 rpm records, kept by his father at home, of the great masters of jazz: Art Tatum, Charlie Parker, Fats Waller, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Erroll Garner and others.
