Hi,

It seems that 2018 will be a busy year … 🙂

I’ll be focused on 3 main projects :

  1. A record with my own compositions
  2. launching my online guitar course.
  3. a duo record playing my 7 strings guitar

I wanna share with You some informations about my first record with incredible musicans like Dave Weckl on Drums and Jimmy Haslip on electric Bass

Luca di Luzio and Jimmy Haslip

( that will also producing the record).  all original compositions from myself!

The main question I made to myself many times was : why???

Finally I have an answer : I need a portrait of a long journey in music, I wanna tell to everybody my story and the best way to do it is through my music...

Playing in Loreto Aprutino

Just back from a nice gig in Abruzzo. Loreto Aprutino is a small town near Pescara where we performed an afternoon concert organized by Archivi Sonori and great Bass Player Maurizio Rolli.

Gianni Ferreri, a talented trumpet player form that area joined us for a couple of tunes.

This was our first Journey on the new Van we got for gigging. It’s great when you can bring everything You need without negotiate with space in the car. Also this van is really confortable so we enjoied the trip , not only the gig.

We enjoied a lot playing in Loreto, the venue was a small Auditorium with enthusiastic audience. I also met someone with my same second name di Luzio , maybe we’re related from the past… who knows.

We’re now planning a new record,  with all original tunes ...
