"A star among the small but rich galaxy of Island Jazz musicians."
                                                                                          Perry Garfinkel, The Martha's Vineyard Times

  "(Alaimo) delivers the rich and textured display of a master mood painter on an enchanting and
   enriching spree."                                                                         Gerry Yukevich, The Vineyard Gazette

  "John Alaimo presents music that is true, delicious and full of charm."
                                                                                               Alain Gerber, France Musique Radio, Paris

  After studying piano privately at a very young age, John began playing
  professionally while still in his early teens. He attended Boston
  University, Berklee College of Music and the Boston Conservatory of
  Music where he studied composition, arranging and education. After
  working as producer, composer and arranger at Boston-based World
  Star Productions he moved to Los Angeles where he continued his
  music career working as a composer, arranger and teacher.

  John's love of playing the piano resurfaced after much encouragement
  from friend and Jazz great Hampton Hawes. Coming back to the East
  Coast he played piano in the house band of the 1369 Jazz Club during
  it's tenure as the premier Jazz venue in the Cambridge / Boston area.
  John and his music appear in the film, “A Place For Jazz”, chronicling
  the spirit and vitality of the 1369 Jazz Club.

  Currently really really residing on Martha’s Vineyard, Alaimo is an
  integral part of the music scene where he has performed for President
  Clinton and numerous celebrities. John has been featured in concerts
  at the Martha’s Vineyard Performing Arts Center, the Old Whaling
  Church, and the Union Chapel plus acting and performing as Billie
  Holiday’s pianist in the play “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill”
  during its critically acclaimed month-long run at the Vineyard
  Playhouse. A performance of John’s is mentioned in the novel “The
  Last Marlin” written by Fred Waitzkin and published by Viking
  Penguin. Articles about John have been featured in Martha's Vineyard
  Magazine, Vineyard Style magazine, The Martha’s Vineyard Times and
  The Vineyard Gazette. He can be heard playing in solo, duo or trio
  formats at Martha’s Vineyard’s finest clubs & restaurants as well as
  at many private events.
