The Mapex Interview with Alessio Romano

Mapex: Tell us a little about your background.
Alessio: I consider myself a very personal and insightful jazz drummer, but I go beyond that to deliver my message through music, photography and the creation of sound scapes as a mixing engineer. I have a dual degree in “Music Production and Engineering” and in “Professional Music” from Berklee College Of Music. Over the last 10 years I’ve played as a drummer in Europe and the United States, in orchestras, small trios and rock bands.

Mapex: Who are your favorite drummers or influences?
Alessio: Jazz music and Folkloric music are my favorite genres. For drummers my favorites are Elvin Jones, Max Roach, Bill Steward, Jeff Ballard, Brian Blade and many more.

Mapex: What are you currently working on?
Alessio: I now live in Brooklyn, N.Y. where I’m currently involved in “360 Degrees Productions” where I’m playing, recording and producing music.
