I'm Pata and I have been playing music since more than 20 years, changing environments, places and listening all sort of sounds and noises, pure and artificial. It's necessary to connect music with beauty...now.

Biography

<>

Bass Player/Songwriter/Arranger/Producer/Ex-Mediator from Bagnara Calabra, Calabria, Italy........Also called: Patanex, Pata, Patane', Bizarro...........Giuseppe started playing acoustic guitar at the age of 13 and bass became his main instrument around 15. Self-taught, after several years as performer and arranger in Milan and a short-intense period of sessions and recordings at Berklee College of Music in Boston, he finally moved to LA. His ability to fuse African music, Jamaican reggae and western pop and rock with a little bit of tarantella? (native to his homeland Calabria) into one special sound is always exciting to watch and hear. His wide range of works and collaborations includes: Quincy Jones, Rod Temperton, Sunny Levine, Maata Haari, Eamon Ryland, Andy Crosby, Simone Sello, Brett Borges, Alex Alessandroni, Herbie Hancock, Larry Goldings, Shawn Rivera, Take6, Greg Phillinganes, Karina Paisan, Stewart Levine, Hugh Masekela, Mickey Avalon, Gigi Meroni, Holly Palmer, Heitor Pereira, Pete Yorn, Michael Frondelli, Rob Cavallo, Eddie Kramer, Damian, Marco Marinangeli, Lalo Schifrin, Jeff & Starr Parodi, Emanuele Arnone, Frank Fritzpatrick, Rhonda Rodgers & Michelle Handel, Walter Donatiello, Warren Cuccurullo, Terry Bozzio, Scheila Gonzales, Billy Hulting, Neil Carlill, Peter Wolf, Lobbe, Doug Lunn, Joe Travers, Manuel Stagars, Zac Rae, Inara George, Trilambs, Amir Efrat, Andreas Brobjer, Aalok, Dorian Cheah, Gary Dourdan, Surface10, Lisle Engle, Sage, Robbie Angelucci, Chris Opperman, Ben Wendell, David Sanborn, Tod Simon, Mocean Worker, Juliet, Marcello Surace, Vinnie Colaiuta, Karen Teperberg, Talvin Singh, Joachim Cooder, Riffat Sultani, Kazem Al Sahir, Simon Shaheen, Khaled, Samuel Cereghini, Steve Ferrone, Alec Puro, PeteyP Merryweather, Angel Figueroa, Dave Weckl, Jamey Haddad, Chris Saleh, Manyungo Jackson, Donato Serrao, Giuseppe"Peppilla" Sainato, Fulvio Pisani, Luana Heredia, Gianluca Tanzini, Marco Detto, Noisi, Ko, Lorenzo Grassi, Marco Meneghin, Andrea D'Angelo, Michael Brook, Megan Jacobs, Zera, Fred Selden, Damiano Della Torre, Giovanni Lombardi, Reidar Doen, Francesco Isola, Louis Conte, Corlea....etc
