Italian jazz musician and composer Claudio Ottaviano is a popular accompanist in Milan's vibrant jazz community. His instrument is the acoustic bass.
As soundtrack, Claudio's music creates a relaxed, very romantic mood. It's never overbearing which makes it sit nicely in an edit. It won't interfere with dialogue or take attention away from visuals. A perfect accompaniment. The music reminds one of Chet Baker's oeuvre as well as the more chilled side of Miles Davis.
Claudio has released two jazz quartet albums to date - Notturno and Aurora. The Aurora album can be licensed on this site.
