FABRIZIO BOSSO

Concert on 28 April 2017 at 20:00h in the ZeitHaus

Almost like travelling back in time to the heyday of bebop and Latin jazz, but without losing touch with the here and now: Fabrizio Bosso is one of Italy's most outstanding jazz trumpeters. He has an inimitable ability to combine the influence of some of his great predecessors like Miles Davis and Chet Baker with his own distinctive musical language. This consists of soft, swinging melodies with intense improvisations that never fail to surprise.

Bosso's father began teaching him to play the trumpet when he was only five. Ten years later he completed his studies at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of Music in his hometown of Turin. He discovered jazz improvisations while still at school, where he played in small groups and big bands. In 1990 he received a scholarship for St. Mary's College in Washington. This was followed by studies with Pierre Thibaud, and from 1993 he developed a reputation for his flawless technique. He played on international tours with bandleaders like George Russell, Dave Liebman and Steve Coleman, and in 2000 he released his debut album Fast Flight. Fabrizio Bosso's technical mastery and distinctive improvisations have seen him working as sideman and frontman with fellow musicians like Dianne Reeves, Carla Bley and Kenny Wheeler. His albums have been released on labels including Blue Note Records and Verve Records, and his numerous projects take him to the world's most prestigious jazz venues.
