JT has just released his new jazz album called "Duality" through Bentley Records. From straight ahead swing to some toe tapping funky jazz, this is JT's second album as a leader. 

His new original music is regularly featured on Legends radio 100.3 FM in South Florida and has been featured on WPKN in Connecticut on the Malcolm Dankner jazz show.

The Town Crier Newspaper in Palm Beach County has just published an article about my new album release. Thank you Town Crier! https://gotowncrier.com/2021/10/area-resident-and-musician-john-tutino-releases-a-new-jazz-cd/

JT has been a frequent guest on the Brooklyn Cafe TV show which broadcasts worldwide from Boca Raton, FL. 

JT started his performing career in the late 1980's as a professional musician in the New York scene with regional east coast touring in the 90's and nationwide touring with the Bronx Wanderers from 2011-2014.

For the last 3 decades, JT has been a gigging workhorse leading many bands including his jazz quartet, and as a sideman performing with or shared the stage/billing with many well renowned artists and groups in over 3000 performances.

JT is a Berklee College of Music graduate and studied with jazz greats like George Garzone, Gato Barbieri, Cameron Brown, Joe Lovano, Jeremy Wall, Dick Oatts, Dino Govoni, Jon Finn, Fred Lipsius, Mike Kelly and many others who have inspired JT to create his own dynamic style on Guitar, Tenor and Alto Saxophones, an uncommon doubling.
