Alberto Marsico was born in Turin, Italy in 1966, and has become one of the most renowned European Organ players. Marsico’s true love and passion for the organ first came about when he attended a workshop by the late Jack McDuff in 1994, an American jazz organist who was most prominent during the hard bop and soul jazz era of the 1960s. In 2000 Marsico fulfilled one of his dreams of playing a duo concert with Deep Purple drummer, Ian Paice in Gubbio, Italy. In 2014 he played at The Blue Note in Tokyo and recorded “Jazz-Blues Brothers” in October, which was released by Verve Records.
Also consisting of members Alessandro Minetto on drums and Diego Borotti on tenor sax, the Alberto Marsico Trio have performed across the globe and have held seminars in numerous European schools and conservatories. Their latest album titled “4/4” which was released in 2015 consist of mainly original compositions in the vein of traditional jazz organ, contemporary jazz, and infused with flavours of blues, soul and funk.
