Beppe Di Benedetto is trombone player, composer and arranger born in Italy. Beppe’s passion for music began at age12 when one day his father came home with a strange black suitcase in his hand. Inside it was a shiny instrument. The continuous curiosity to capture the secret language of music has accorded Beppe with opportunities to share the stage with such notable musicians as Eumir Deotado, Solomon Burke, Bob Mintzer, Burt Bacharach, Paul Anka, Mario Biondi, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Hengel Gualdi, Jovanotti, Antonella Ruggero, Fabrizio Bosso, Lorenzo Tucci, Daniele Scannapieco, Giovanni Amato, Claudio Filippini, Andrea Tofanelli, Massimo Manzi, Ellade Bandini, Christian Meyer, Michael Rosen, Ernesstico, Mark Harris, Luca Mannutza, Alessandro Magnanini, Tullio De Piscopo and more.
Beppe Di Benedetto has released albums with Jovanotti (Collettivo Soleluna, Jovalive 2002), Mario Biondi (I Love You More, If, Yes You Live, Due), Alexia (Gli Occhi Grandi Della Luna), Jazz Art Orchestra (8 ½ , Drums), Kikkombo (Freddo Freddo, Wild Bloom); he has collaborated on various TV productions and for many years Beppe was the conductor and arranger of the Jazz Orchestra CB BAND. From 2006 to 2013 Beppe has collaborated with Mario Biondi (Italy’s first jazz and soul voice) in tours as a trombone player and arranger.
In November 2011, Beppe Di Benedetto released his debut album “See The Sky”, a veritable résumé of experiences, knowledge and emotions acquired through the many years of playing music and living life. This album is a result of Beppe's enthusiasm and joy for making music, and from time to time it is a bit of everything - intense, soft, minimal, furious and romantic.
