Bio

Neapolitan Musician.

Spiced with the exotic traditions that infuse flamenco-gypsy, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean folk interwoven with textures of classical, jazz, and Latin rhythms, composer and guitarist Max Puglia's music is both sophisticated and accessible. It is sensuous, passionate, romantic and inescapably infectious. 


"It's powerful, flamenco is very strong, and has its influence from the Middle East," says Puglia. "The other side is the romantic aspect of Latin music, so it's absolutely the best of both worlds." 


Playing in jazz clubs around town, Puglia was soon studying with some of world's finest guitarists, including Jim Hall and Mick Goodrick.

Puglia's own passionate music has been featured in a series of CD's beginning in the late 2000's. Walking in Vietri (BAM, 2005) features Puglia's fiery guitar and sensual compositions flavored with Latin and flamenco strains. 
Apasionado (BAM 2008) with the best Italians musicians. Made In America (RRLJ 2009) at the Rosa Rosa Late Jazz in Lancaster PA, which he recorded, mixed and repackaged. The event was captured in discrete multichannel sound, taking advantage of the exceptional acoustics at Club. This magical performance lingers on the musical palette and is not easily forgotten. Puglia's compositions for LIVE - MADE IN AMERICA present intense and evocative music complimented by a lyrical style which is sure to influence aspiring guitarists for generations to come. The impassioned strains of Puglia's virtuosity, both as a guitarist and composer, offer listeners a vibrant and exhilarating sound. 
The last work "Insieme" (MCNE 2010) brought his flamenco and Latin-based jazz to new realms with the addition of more complex orchestration and additional instrumentation; including the melodic strings of a chamber orchestra, and a wide array of penetrating vocals.
