Giovanni Ceccarelli – piano

Mauro Gargano – double bass

Patrick Goraguer – drums


The Giovanni Ceccarelli Trio features three musicians of great experience on the international scene. Their music is very lyrical, moreover the arrangements put in evidence the three artists’ expressive qualities. Ceccarelli, Gargano and Goraguer deeply listen to each other, creating an interplay throughout their process of making music.

In 2011 Giovanni Ceccarelli releases the album Météores, a work mostly dedicated to his own music, which is produced by French label Bonsaï Music. Italian guitarist and singer Fausto Mesolella and Belgian singer David Linx are featured as special guests in the album.

Météores is also published with a special edition in Japan by Production Dessinée.

Météores meets the public’s and critics’ success and it is awarded with the Sélection FIP and Sélection écouters in France and the Sélection HMCH in Switzerland.


Ceccarelli’s jazz is mature and incisive; this record… is among the most intense and convincing works that we’ve happened to listen to in recent times.

The trio performs in France, Italy, and Lebanon: Italian Cultural Institute, Semaine Italienne festival and Sunside Jazz Club in Paris, Musicpool festival in Italy, Jazz Talks festival in Beirut among others. The group appears at national radios France Inter and France Music. In addition to the music from Météores, the trio proposes Cinéma en Jazz, a tribute to film music composers, and The Composer’s Art, a collection of music by prominent composers.
