• Ferdinando Argenti (Piano and Band) • Ferdinando's Style is Simply Exquisite! FERDINANDO ARGENTI, Boston-based pianist/keyboardist/ vocalist/composer and arranger was born in Pisa, Italy, in 1954. At age 7, this multi-faceted artist began studying piano until he entered high school, during which time he gained experience playing with Italian rock bands (although in the meantime listening to his fatherís American swing records), and even won a national musical contest and appeared on Italian television. Ferdinando Argentiís brilliant jazz piano sound and improvisational style are a composite of Charlie Parkerís be-bop, Oscar Petersonís blend of bop and swing, the lyrical approach of Bill Evans and Chet Baker, and some of the harmonic innovations and rhythmic feel of Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea . Argentiís sensitive vocal phrasing and delivery can be largely attributed to his admiration for Frank Sinatra and Chet Baker .
