Cincotti started tinkering with a toy piano his grandmother gave him at an early age. By the age of nine, he was composing and in his mid-teens, he took up singing. Cincotti soon became a quadruple threat: pianist, singer, composer, and arranger. While still in high school, he played in jazz clubs throughout Manhattan, participated in the National Grammy Band, was honored in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and was invited to perform at the White House. He also won a coveted award at the Montreux 2000 Jazz Festival in Switzerland for his piano rendition of Dizzy Gillespie's A Night in Tunisia.
Cincotti has performed at such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, the Newport, Monterey, Montreux, Detroit and Montreal Jazz Festivals, as well as the top concert halls and jazz clubs around the world.
