Among the many artists he has collaborated with are Uri Caine, Louis Sclavis, Ernst Reijseger, Pierre Dorge and Franco DAndrea; he has also participated in the recording of many CDs and performs on a global basis.

As a leader, Succi has recorded two CDs: Shiva's Dance (Artesuonor, 2003) and Terra (Splasc(h), 2006), amid a duo session with bassist Salvatore Maiore: Pequenas flores do inferno (El Gallo Rojo, 2006). Together with pianist Fabrizio Puglisi and guitarist Alberto Capelli, he founded the group, Atman.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
