About Me...
Based in New York City, Italian born Gennaro Esposito (a.k.a. Genny or Jenny Esposito), was introduced to the guitar during his adolescence and regularly played gospel and soul rhythms on the electric guitar for his church starting at the ripe age of 10.

Like many young males of his time who were influenced by the likes of Van Halen and Bon Jovi, playing rock music on the electric guitar was of great appeal.

Jazz music however, was likewise a part of his upbringing due to his interaction with American musicians during his youth, from whom the world of Jazz was introduced and cultivated.

It follows that these areas of music played a major role in his tireless days and nights of practicing the guitar during his formative years and beyond. He was further influenced by Master classes taught by Mike Stern, Frank Gambale and Jim Hall, coursework taken while pursuing his degree in Jazz at the Conservatorio di Musica S. Pietro a Majella, and from his travels to Spain, where he studied Flamenco with Gypsy, Antonio Santiago.

Today when you listen to guitarist Gennaro Esposito, you can’t help but notice the caliber and range of the music he is able to play. From Rock to Pop, Flamenco to Jazz, Funk to Soul or otherwise, his impressive skills when playing the electric, acoustic, or classical guitar, in combination with his unique musical expression infused by his Mediterranean roots, imparts an immediate and distinct reflection on Genny’s diverse playing environments.

We invite you to listen and watch for yourself.
