Salvatori was born in Urbania in 1953. His passion for jazz music began during his
childhood when he started to play drums and clarinet. He soon abandoned
them, though, to dedicate himself exclusively to alto and tenor sax.
In his youth he played in different jazz line-ups, from small combos to
big bands such as "Jazz Cale
Big Band" and attended the Siena
Jazz Workshops where he studied with Paolo Fresu and other
prestigious Italian jazz artists.
In 1989 he formed the Ujazz Quartet, of which he has been the founder and
a steady member for over 20 years. The quartet has carved out an
important space in the regional jazz circle also thanks to Nicola's
interest in other forms of art such as verbal and visual language with
particular attention to filmmaking. In fact, he has produced a variety
of visual works used not only by the quartet itself.
He has perfectly blended together those passions which have led him to
take part in several literary performances in theatres and clubs with
names like Paolo Crepet and to compose suites for theatrical events.
In 2005 he was invited by art critic and writer Marco Pesatori to the
major Italian contemporary art exhibition, the 51st Venice Biennial
/ Dance Section where he
took part in the performance "La
parola agli astri del corpo: Venere-forma, Plutone-desiderio" (Giving
voice to the stars of the body: Venus -shape, Pluto -desire)
Together again with Marco Pesatori, he held yearly workshops on "Jazz
and Astrology" at
Rocella Jonica Jazz Festival from 2006 to 2009.
