Records, featuring Gadi Lehavi on piano, Felix Rossy on trumpet, Giulio Scianatico on double bass and Andrea Niccolai on drums, featured as “record of the month” by the famous Italian Jazz Magazine “Musica Jazz” in September 2019.

Born in February 1996, Enrico has been sharing the stage with some of the best jazz musicians in the world such as Joe Magnarelli, Mark Sherman, Fabrizio Bosso, Simon Rigter, Marcos Varela, Michael Abene, John Ruocco among many others.

As a world touring musician he performed in different clubs and festivals in Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Romania, Switzerland and New York City since 2014. His debut project won several prizes and recognitions such as JAZZMI 2019 at the Milan Jazz Festival, Youth Jazz Competition & Festival in Targu Mures, Romania, Puglia Sounds Record and Export 2019.

Graduating at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague with Martijn Van Iterson, Wim Bronnenberg, Jarmo Hoogendijk and John Ruocco, he also graduated cum laude in classical guitar in Taranto in 2014 and went on to NYC to continue studying privately with Peter Bernstein, Paul Bollenback, David Kikoski, Benito Gonzalez, Barry Harris, Mike Moreno.

"Enrico Le Noci is one of the best jazz guitar players I have heard in recent years.
He represents the brightest of the next generation of musicians that love the blues, bebop, and all things swinging!
He has a solid foundation in the past but always truly in the moment when he improvises and has his own identity.
Because of this, he is an artist to keep your ear on! I look forward to hearing all of his musical adventures."
Peter Bernstein
