"It isn’t often you discover a performer whose creative ability takes your breath away in the first 30 seconds of hearing their music. A style so innovative in concept and contemporary in style, established Jazz artists you’ve come to know and enjoy over time are pushed aside to accommodate a musical sensation so rare you’re knocked off your feet immediately.
Marco Marconi is an accomplished, classically-trained Jazz pianist who grew up in the breathtaking region of Umbria in Italy, and who made a life changing decision to move permanently to the UK in 2012 to pursue his musical career. He made the right choice.
His skill as a composer so naturally distinctive and seemingly effortless, he’s earned a reputation as a class act on the British festival circuit, the Fazioli Concert Hall in Venice and the buzzing London Jazz Club scene. Marco Marconi and his trio’s debut album NORDIK recorded in Venice in 2013, was a well received collection of eclectic genius and garnered rave reviews.
Marco is a breath of fresh air for dedicated Jazz fans everywhere." -Anthea Redmond, Founder JazzBitesRadio.com
