Riccardo Chiarion - Jazz Guitar Player - Composer


Riccardo Chiarion is a complete and fine guitarist, for this reason a very sought-after and esteemed teacher.

At the end of the 90s he recorded in trio with Roberto Franceschini and Luca Colussi, helping a little after to found Namòs, a quintet of young musicians from Friuli that recorded “Sestante” for Artesuono in 2005.

He has therefore worked with jazz musicians such as Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Martin France, Chris Laurence, and has played for three years with Pietro Tonolo quartet.
He also enhanced discographic productions like «Watch your step» (Nicola Fazzini), «Decantando» (Federica Santi), and participated in the important project «Glauco Venier suona Frank Zappa».

Riccardo Chiarion is now recording as a leader; recently, two CDs for the Venetian label Caligola Records were released, “Sirene” and “Mosaico” (featuring Pietro Tonolo).

Riccardo Chiarion’s latest record "Waves" (Caligola Records) sees the presence of the English pianist John Taylor along with Diana Torto (vocals), Julian Siegel (Sax), Alessandro Turchet (double bass) and Luca Colussi (drums).
