I have literally sailed the seven seas with Ezio. We got to know each other a few years ago when I started playing with the super band called The Tree Gees, a group dedicated to spreading the music of my idols, the Bee Gees. We have played countless gigs internationally, and are often guests as interport artists on cruise liners.
"Zac" is a passionate and cultured musician, with a character that is a curious fusion of Neapolitan fire and Buddhist calm!
He was the obvious choice for my song "Are You With Me?", with its Barry Gibb and Burt Bacharach influences.
Thank you, my dear friend!
Professional drummer and percussionist, born in Naples.
He moved to Rome, aged 20, to pursue his musical studies.
Initially self-taught, he later studied with some friends, colleagues amd teachers, in order to follow specific musical subjects. Always active in the percussion field, he spent a lot of time studying dynamics, sounds, articulation and sound quality of many percussion instruments, before going back to drums, his first passion.
His personal way of playing drums has been described as sunny and clear, just like a real “groove man” must be, but he took part in several original ethnic drum sets projects as well.
Established as a successful drummer, after many musical tours and albums with important Italian and international pop, jazz and folk singers and songwriters, he’s also been working as a producer, author, drum teacher and drum clinic anchorman in music schools and shops.
His current musical project is known with the name of ZAC IN PROGRESS ZIP.
He played in tours and albums for many artists as : Gianni Morandi, Massimo Ranieri,Gianni Togni,Sergio Endrigo,Geoff Westley, Badarà Seck, Max Manfredi,Gary Kelly,Jean Philippe RyKiel,Gabin Dabirè,Penny Brown,Tito Schipa Jr and so on.
