Marco Bardoscia Trio “The future is a tree”
Marco Bardoscia’s name is becoming more and more familiar in the latest years, and it’s always associated with interesting projects. For instance, the Apulian double bass player has performed in “Lumina”, a tribute to light through the sound, “BAM” (with Rita Marcotulli and Quartetto Alborada), in duo with Raffaele Casarano, and “Tempo di Chet” and “Altissima Luce”, an original jazz reinterpretation of the “Laudario di Cortona”, with Paolo Fresu. Now, he returns to Umbria with his trio featuring William Greco on piano and Dario Congedo on percussions, both classically educated musicians with a strong jazz vocation. This is the lineup of “The future is a tree”, Bardoscia’s debut album as a leader for Tŭk Music. This record is dedicated to time, the seasons following each other, and the crazy weather due to the action of man. The future, therefore, is a tree.
First a self-educated musician, then a student at the Conservatory “Tito Schipa” of Lecce, he started with classical music, then he discovered jazz. Bardoscia initially took an interest in electric bass but soon moved to double bass.
He has played rock, pop, and world music. He finally decided to be a jazzman, an original one if you consider “Tutti Soli”, a small monument to the double bass played in complete solitude.
Marco Bardoscia, who is now a guest of prestigious events and a collaborator of artists such as Fresu, Gianluca Petrella, Ernst Reijseger, Raffaele Casarano, Luca Aquino, Banda Municipal de Santiago de Cuba, had a significant moment at Umbria Jazz: he attended the Berklee summer clinics in 2002 and was awarded as one of the best talents, which allowed him to perform at Umbria Jazz Winter the same year.
