Simone Giuliani

Beginning of this month I had the honor of witnessing and documenting the incredible composer and piano player Simone Giuliani in the studio.

Simone Giuliani, better known as 4MuLA is a freelance keyboard player, composer, arranger/orchestrator and music producer living in Manhattan, New York. He is currently recording and producing Sambismo, a project with multi-instrumentalist Zé Luis [Caetano Veloso, Tania Maria] and producer/dj Béco Dranoff [Bebel Gilberto, Red Hot & Rio]. Since 2007 he has been collaborating with Grammy Award-winner Jason Olaine for Monterey Jazz Festival Records/Concord Music Group, working on rare live recordings of Miles Davis Quintet, Dave Brubeck, Sarah Vaughan, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong and Tito Puente among others. Simone composed music for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Spike Lee’s “Humanity” project, CBS News, the movies “A Raisin In The Sun” (Golden Globe-nominated), “Little Gold Men” and “Blindspot” and the best-selling CD release Café del Mar. You can also hear his music in the film “Beyond Ipanema” featuring David Byrne, M.I.A. and Gilberto Gil.
