Get Your Groove On is the first single by Italian saxophonist Gianni Vancini from his follow-up album and forthcoming 2013 fall release. This funky soul jazz experience will make your head bop and body groove. “We went back to the roots and cut the track live with a stellar rhythm section: Ricky Lawson, Alex Al, Sheldon Reynolds, special guest Kenya Hathaway and producer Greg Manning.
 It was pure joy!”

Born in Mirandola, Italy, Gianni has collaborated with singer/songwriter Andrea Mingardi and Umberto Tozzi, pianists Carlo Guaitoli and Paolo Andreoli. He has worked with musicial talents such as Antonella Ruggiero, Spagna, Fausto Leali, Enrico Ruggeri, Amedeo Minghi, Iva Zanicchi, Gianni Morandi, Lucio Dalla, Ron, Stadio, Barbara Cola, Katia Ricciarelli, Ami Stewart, Kid Creole and the Coconuts and the late Carl Anderson.

In 2011 Gianni released his debut album ”SOULS UNITED”. Co-produced with Thomas Bank and recorded in Amsterdam Gianni takes the coolest parts of contemporary music and blends it together for a sophisticated, funky, stylish pop sound that reaches deep into the groove bag to deliver upbeat jazz and feel good melodies akin to David Sanborn and Grover Washington, Jr! The international release features special guests Eric Marienthal, Umberto Tozzi and Andrea Mingardi.
