Fabrizio Bosso - A Short Biography

Born into a family of musicians, Fabrizio Bosso started learning the trumpet at five to graduate at fifteen from Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of Turin.
Today, he is considered one of the top trumpet players in busy, fertile, rich jazz country Italy.

Gifted with stunning technique and warm lyricism capable of mesmerising his audiences, he has developed his own music making by tackling various musical genres, but always remaining true to his jazz roots, and to the post-bop idiom in particular.

Fabrizio Bosso has recorded over twenty albums as leader and featured as special guest in lots of bands on numerous recordings, thus enriching his own style and always gathering new inspiration.

Always eager for new experiences and new encounters, his musicianship has been freshened up by collaborations with innumerable Italian fellow musicians (Gianni Basso, Enrico Pieranunzi and Rosario Giuliani), with countless international jazz icons (Charlie Haden, Carla Bley, Diane Reeves and Maria Schneider), with popular stars like Zucchero or Claudio Baglioni, with important orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra or the Orchestra della RAI di Torino, but also with young jazz talents whom Bosso has been happy to support the emerging careers of.

He has performed throughout Europe, in Asia, the USA and Latin America, hailed all over by critics and audiences for his combining the Afro-American jazz tradition with his own melodic Italian musicality, and for his unique, distinguished trumpet-playing.
