Smooth jazz guitarist, producer & composer
Born in Locarno, Switzerland, an eclectic cultural environment with a strong Italian heritage, Fabio Mignola was fascinated by the intricate harmonies and rhythms of the various forms of folk and classical music that surrounded him. The simplistic beauty of the acoustic guitar quickly became the voice of this passionate musician.
After studying for several years with professor Dante Brenna, he graduated from Conservatory Donizetti in Bergamo in 1991. Mignola immersed himself in guitar studies and master classes with virtuosos like Alberto Ponce, Alexandre Rodrigues and Ralph Towner.
Later on he was inspired by the spontaneity of jazz and the visual complexities of impressionism.
As he also continued to master the classical and folk repertoire, Mignola found himself incorporating his diverse artistic experiences into a soundscape rich in textures.
This pursuit of music without boundaries led to solo recordings and many productive partnerships.
A collaboration with famed Swiss songstress Nella Martinetti would further endear Mignola as a beloved international guitarist.
However, it was the 2003 contemporary jazz release of "Flyin'' Away"that would tantalize American airwaves.
Smooth Jazz and More declared, "Mignola gives the listener a style much like Peter White and Acoustic Alchemy. It''s very cheerful and at the same time, very relaxing."
As a highly respected freelance musician, Mignola has also worked extensively on radio, television, soundtracks and with such international artists as Marco Zappa, Mauro Bonomi (Switzerland), Roby Nogueira (Portugal), Paolo Cattaneo and the Franco Brambati Group (Italy).
Entranced by Brazilian jazz, Mignola often performs in a light mix of sambas and bossa nova stylings.
"...you''ll be completely swept away with Fabio''s mastery of the guitar."
ECHO SMOOTH JAZZ (UK)
"[the] musician moves himself between jazz, funk, Latin and pop suggestions that are intersected with looseness in linear compositions and that allow Mignola to give a taste of its proven virtuosism." - CORRIERE DEL TICINO (Switzerland)
"Mignola''s guitar voice is smooth and full of talent."
