Originally from Bari, Southern Italy, Alberto Racanati (alias Alber) is a musician and creator established in Kansas City, MO. Coming from a classical background, Alber started in 2017, when he began experimenting by combining his trumpet with synthesizers. He released his first self titled album, Alber, in 2020, followed by his second album, Journey, released in 2021. Alber’s music is a blend of nostalgic synthwave sounds, jazz idioms, and Dilla inspired beats. His work has been described as “consummate chill-out music for the cool kids of today and the old-school smooth jazz fans”.
