Adam Cesarone is an electric guitarist based in Toronto. Currently in his final semester of Humber College’s Bachelor Degree program, he is a young emerging artist with a unique voice on the jazz scene. His talents have led him to performing and teaching opportunities in both Canada and the United States.
At the age of twelve Adam received his first guitar, and it was the musical stylings of Eddie Van Halen that proved to be very formidable to the early stages of his development. Over time, Adam’s musical palette began to broaden and a strong passion for jazz followed suite. Deciding to pursue music performance as his post-secondary study, some of Adam’s most notable influences to date include John Coltrane, Allan Holdsworth, Tigran Hamasyan, Joe Henderson, Bill Evans, and Kurt Rosenwinkle.
At Humber College Adam currently plays guitar in the Studio Jazz Ensemble led by Denny Christianson, as well as a student concept ensemble led by Larnell Lewis. During his stay Adam has had the opportunity to study intimately with the likes of Ted Quinlan, Mike Downes, Geoff Young, Lorne Lofsky, Brian Dickinson, and Larnell Lewis.
Adam will be releasing the material from his fourth year recording project which consists of original compositions and arrangements in the summer of 2018, as well as an offering of jazz standards featuring his trio of David Steinmetz on drums and Mike Downes on bass.
Adam can be heard playing in various musical settings in Toronto at places such as The Rex, The Emmet Ray, and Lee’s Palace, and is currently composing new material to perform and record upon graduation.
