Bruno Martino

Biography

Italian jazz composer, singer and pianist, mostly known internationally for "Estate," composed in 1960, a standard that has been played by many jazz performers since the early 1960s. His song "Dracula Cha Cha Cha" appears on the album Italian Graffiti (1960/61) and is performed onscreen in Vincente Minnelli's film Two Weeks in Another Town (1962).

His early working life was spent in European radio and night club orchestras, later composing for popular Italian singers and touring the world with his own orchestra. He had a late-blossoming career as a singer.

Bruno Martino died on 12 June 2000, aged 74, in Rome.
