Enrico Granafei-guitar/chromatic harmonica/vocals

Enrico Granafei has a long history of musical experience that encompasses both classical music and jazz. He received his degree in classical guitar from the Conservatory of l’Aquila in Italy in 1976 and his artistic career started in Rome where he soon became known in the musical community.  In 1992 Granafei received his master’s degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music where he was the only student of Toots Thielemans.  His love for jazz led him to New York City, where he soon started to perform in local jazz clubs including The Blue Note, Birdland,Visiones, Angry Squire, and the Bottom Line. He has performed extensively on the chromatic harmonica in the United States and continued to be a featured musician in major European Festivals, including Pori Jazz Festival (Finland), Euromeet Jazz Festival and Veneto Jazz Festival (Italy), and other jazz festivals throughout Italy, France, Spain and major clubs throughout Europe.

Granafei has been the owner and musical director of the prestigious Trumpets Jazz Club in Montclair, New Jersey since 1999.  One of the most respected players of the Chromatic Harmonica in the world today, Granafei continues to cultivate an audience for the instrument through his international performances.  Enrico had pioneered for years the Hand-free chromatic harmonica. The unique instrument invented by Vern Smith allows him to play jazz on the harmonica accompanying himself on a guitar with two bass strings, which allows him to sound like 3 instruments at the same time, something that nobody had ever done in jazz before.
