Giosuè Greco, originally from southern Italy, is a talented young saxophonist, composer, and music producer. He approached the alto saxophone at an early age, and soon after quickly developed his musical skills on piano and electric keyboards, as well.
Because of his young age and the difficulty of finding other jazz musicians in his birthplace, he started to use basic recording tools in order to be
come his own band – playing and overdubbing each instrument alone, using home systems including old cassette-recorders and computers. His high school years were spent working on reaching his main goal of mastering multiple instruments.“ I was amazed to discover how it feels to assist during recording sessions – either as a player or a recording engineer. I suddenly realized all the possibilities there are once you have each instrument recorded on a separate track.”
After spending years, day and night, learning on his own how the technology of music works, he was hired by local singer/songwriter, Giuseppe Barillà, as a producer. On several occasions, Giosuè also co-wrote on many of his tunes. After this experience, he worked as a producer and co-writer for various artists including, Dylan Autore and Ugo Rosano, among others.
Regarding his career classically, his accomplishments are remarkable; he completed his formal classical education in the Vibo Valentia Music Conservatory, with maximum point scores in 2008. Giosuè was a member of many wind orchestras, such as The Melicucco’s Wind Orchestra and Bagnara Wind Orchestra, in which he participated in the International Certamen Ciudad de Valencia (Spain) and the Kerkrade Music Contest (Holland), where he was awarded first place as an alto soloist.
An opportunity presented itself for Giosuè during the Umbria Jazz Clinics in 2009, where he was selected by the faculty of Berklee College of Music to receive the European Tour Scholarship, allowing him to attend the prestigious college in Boston. He was then accepted into the college’s esteemed Music Production and Engineering program.
He is exceptionally involved in the Berklee Community as both a performer and producer. Since his arrival in Boston he has performed and collaborated with the likes of Tetsuro Hoshii Playground, Writers Jazz Collective, Cettina Donato, Ah Young Min, Jae Cheol Oh, Yuki Ohnishi, and Julia Ana Zolocovska. He is member of the Video Games Music Club, Italians Club, and Jazz Writers Collective at Berklee and he also partecipated in the Film Scoring Contest at Berklee during the fall semester 2011.
