A jazz piano hero of the Pacific Northwest, Pacini has worked with a long list of the world's most celebrated and recognized jazz artists. His jazz piano artistry has been enthusiastically enjoyed by nightclub and festival audiences throughout the West coast as well as in his hometown of Portland, Oregon.

Born in Tokyo, Japan, while his father, (a consummate musician) was on the road at the time; pianist Tony Pacini came to Portland, Oregon as an infant. Tony's exposure to music began at an early age, having the added benefits of growing up in a musical family including three uncles, two aunts and a father all of whom were experienced musicians. A piano student since age 5, Tony led his first trio as a teenager, holding down weekends at a popular jazz spot.

The piano made higher education possible for Tony, including study at Boston's prestigious Berklee College Of Music, courtesy of a all-tuition paid scholarship from jazz critic Leonard Feather.

Upon returning to Portland Tony immersed himself in the jazz scene performing with, most notably: Leroy Vinnegar, Antonio Hart, Bill Henderson, Bud Shank, Benny Golson, Byron Stripling, Carl Sanders, Chuck Israels, Chuck Redd, Claudio Roditi, Curtis Fuller, Dan Faehnle, Hadley Calliman, Harry Allen, Marlena Shaw, Mary Stallings, Mel Brown, Ritchie Cole, Ron Steen, Nancy King and Rebecca Kilgore, just to name a few.

In addition to leading the Tony Pacini Trio, Tony Pacini is the pianist and musical director of the Mel Brown Quartet, an owner of Saphu Records (an independent, boutique jazz record label with international distribution), and broadcasts as jazz radio host Sunday afternoons 4:00pm-6:00pm Pacific Time (World Clock; UTC/GMT -7 hours) on K.M.H.D. 89.1fm Portland, OR.
