Bio:  John Patitucci
was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1959 and began playing the electric bass at
age ten. He began performing and composing at age 12, at age 15 began to play
the acoustic bass, and then started the piano at age 16. He quickly moved from
playing soul and rock to blues, jazz and classical music. His eclectic tastes
caused him to explore all types of music as a player and a composer.

Since 1985, his association with
Chick Corea has brought him worldwide acclaim and put him at the forefront of
the jazz world, and he has performed with countless luminaries of the jazz
world.

John has always felt a call to
mentor and teach young musicians and to help further and sustain the art of
jazz and bass playing around the world. In 2002, John began teaching at The
City College of New York and was a Professor of Jazz Studies there for ten years.
He has also been involved with the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program in
Washington, D.C. and the The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. John is a
frequent clinician and guest lecturer at schools around the world and a regular
featured performer at the International Society of Bassists conventions. He is
currently a Visiting Scholar at Berklee, teaching in both the Global Jazz
Institute and the Bass Department.

John currently
resides in New York with his wife Sachi, a cellist, and their two daughters.
