Background

After studying classical music for 3 years, i completed my jazz bachelor's at "Conservatorio Vincenzo Bellini" of Palermo (italy),and i achieved my Jazz master's degree at "Guildhall school of music & drama" in London. Since then i've been performing in different kind of venues round London such as "606 jazz club", "Oliver's jazz bar", "Barbican freestage", "Royal Albert Hall", "Mix Rich" etc. I've also played in festivals like "Isle of Wight", "Cheltenham Jazz festival" and others round Europe

Song list

When you book instant book, you can leave it to the musician to create a listening experience based on the details you provide, but you can also ask for something specific from the musician's popular songs below. Feel free to ask if there something similar you would love to hear not show below.

I can play songs from the Real Books, including both the great american standards songwriters (Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Jimmy Van Heusen, Gershwin etc) and Jazz composers such as Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, Horace Silver etc. I can also prepare some solos by Stan Getz, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker and so on. In my repertoire I have a wide range of blues tunes, classic Motown records, and I can also perform some of the famous popular tunes by request. When I play my pieces to the audience, I'm keen on explaining the compositions process, the story behind each tune.

Marco played some lovely jazz and was very friendly and personable. The concert was for my Dad who is in a Care Home. They were late joining and Marco was flexible and happy to play a little extra at the end to make up. He was also very nice to my Dad which we appreciated.

Marco is a wonderful musician and his mellow jazz performance was just what we needed for a gathering of friends we haven't been able to see these past months. Thank you for a beautiful performance.

Many, many thanks for a wonderful concert! David looked like he enjoyed every minute of it and I also was so happy to listen to some live music after so long. You play really well and you have fantastic performing energy, which isn't easy over zoom! Really looking forward to sharing your details with David and his family, as well as my circles, because we can all do with some more musical joy in our lives! Very glad it was enjoyable for you too.

Thanks so much again for making this such a special occasion!
