Javier Girotto

A saxophonist from Argentina who lives in Italy. Girotto was born in Córdoba, Argentina, spent his youth playing in tango orchestras and jazz bands, and then went to Boston, where he studied jazz at the Berklee College of Music. Thereafter, he travelled to Italy, his grandparents’ native country, and, once there, made the decision to move his centre of life permanently to Rome, a place which, in his view, has many parallels to his Argentine homeland. With over 500 pieces and almost 40 albums to his name, he had built up an enormous repertoire as a composer. Girotto played with the likes of "El Negro" Hernández, Bob Mintzer, Randy Brecker, Mercedes Sosa, Luciano Biondini, Enrico Rava and Fabrizio Bosso.
