Sam Ortolano


I play jazz standards from the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's instrumentally on the acoustic guitar. The music makes for a great background for weddings, dinners, brunches, formal parties, patio receptions, or any other special event where some classic live music would add to the overall ambience.


I am a graduate of Berklee School of Music in Boston. I have been playing professionally for over 30 years with various music ensembles. As a member of the latin jazz combo, Cantilena, toured North and South America from 1995-2001. Most recently have been performing solo at a number of restaurants and night club lounges around Southern California as well as private special events such as weddings and parties. I am on MySpace at You can also reach me at 626-755-0293


Currently promoting an all acoustic cd of jazz standards.
