Italian Guitarist Massimo Sammi Debuts new CD at Regattabar, October 6

Join guitarist Massimo Sammi as he celebrates the release of his debut CD First Day in concert at the Regattabar, Charles Hotel, One Bennett Street, Cambridge.

First Day is a musically and conceptually daring recording debut of immense depth and beauty inspired by the film A Beautiful Mind. Sammi combines both a musical storyboarding of the film with a musical application of mathematician John Nash's theories to free jazz improvisations.

Sammi, a native of Genoa, Italy, came to the U.S. in 2006 to study Jazz Composition with Ken Schaphorst and Michael Gandolfi at New England Conservatory.

Joining Sammi is the all-star group featured on the CD: saxophonist George Garzone, bassist John Lockwood, drummer Yoron Israel, and special guest vocalist Dominique Eade.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are $16. Call 617-661-5000 or log on to regattabarjazz.com/.

A streaming video documentary about the making of First Day is available here.
