latest release

Alberto Pinton perseverates in keeping the jazz roots watered with the willingness of exploring new creative avenues; his quartet Noi Siamo (“We Are” in Italian) offers music that stands between the enjoyableness of non-obvious thematic capsules and the raucous lucidity of minds that know where they’re going, which they do without looking back.
Massimo Ricci / Touching Extremes

about

Alberto Pinton has been performing as bandleader and sideman, on all sizes of saxophones, clarinets and flutes, for over thirty years, delivering highly sought-after solo and ensemble work on the jazz and improvised music scene.

His most recent group as a leader, a chordless quartet (two horns, bass and drums) named Alberto Pinton Noi Siamo, has released a live recording of original compositions, "Resiliency", on Moserobie Music Production. Two live recordings will be released in a near future.
Of the music on "Resiliency", critics write: "Pinton and Barnö unfurl extended improvisations with electric intensity, always plugged into the agile, shape-shifting rhythm section","Pinton definitely knows his “free” chops, but favors rationality over fervid incomprehensibility. Barnö, Zetterberg and Agnas enrich the interplay with respect and realism, constantly conscious of the overall intensity and velocity". 

Alberto Pinton has released nine albums as leader and co-leader. Previous recordings include work by the Alberto Pinton Quintet, Alberto Pinton Clear Now, Dog Out, Pinton Kullhammar Zetterberg Nordeson, Alberto Pinton Nascent.

Alberto has received two full scholarships, from the Berklee College of Music and the Manhattan School of Music. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Saxophone Performance at Berklee, and with a Master's Degree in Saxophone Performance at the Manhattan School, New York. During his four years stay in the USA, Alberto studied the saxophone with Hamiet Bluiett, Joe Temperley, George Garzone, Joe Viola, Dick Oatts, Gary Smulyan, Jerry Bergonzi. Theory and composition with Maria Schneider, Ludmila Ulehla and Nils Vigeland.  

Alberto Pinton has toured and performed with, among many others, Kenny Wheeler, John Surman, John Warren, Bob Brookmeyer, Maria Schneider, Jerry Bergonzi, Lennart Åberg, Nils Landgren, Kenny Werner, Steve Grey, Norma Winstone, George Russell, Tim Hagans, Peter Erskine, Joe Lovano, Steve Swallow, Carla Bley, Adam Nussbaum, Swedish Radio Jazz Group, Stockholm Jazz Orchestra, Bohuslän Big Band, Norrbotten Big Band.

His teaching experience, spanning over two decades, include classes of ear training, improvisation, ensemble and instrument lessons at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

Born and raised on the "terraferma", the mainland, of Marghera, an industrial town outside of Venice, Italy, he currently lives in Stockholm, Sweden.
