More Details JazzUP! presents… The MARCO MARCONI TRIO + The Young Jazz Guns + Les Jazz Rats DJs!


Darlings of the London jazz circuit, this formidable threesome are nothing short of spectacular. If you love jazz, you are in for a rare treat; if you don’t - you will do after this gig. This is 18 karat sonic pleasure.

Hot on the heels of their critically-acclaimed album Trialogue (released on the 33Jazz label), The Marco Marconi Trio have recently thrilled audiences with their contemporary jazz stylings at iconic London nightspots like Ronnie Scott’s and the 606 Club.

Led by Marco Marconi, Perugia-born pianist known as “The Doctor”, and ably assisted by rising stars Tom Farmer (double bass, of Empirical fame) and Emiliano Caroselli (drums), this dynamic combo comes with a venerable pedigree, honed here in the UK and abroad.

Marconi’s distinct cinematic compositions are skillfully bolstered by Farmer and Caroselli’s inspired musicianship. Their jazz is spellbinding, both on record and in atmospheric venues, captivating everyone from lovers of live music to jazz critics.

Melding original tracks with classic jazz standards, the trio has honed a winning formula. Their latest album New Roads fuses bebop, ballads, bossa nova, tango and moody pop, and features one of Europe’s leading jazz saxophonists, Max Ionata.

In an age when we tend to think we have heard it all, The Marco Marconi Trio delivers something truly fresh. This is eclectic jazz for the 21st century - edgy, soulful, dynamic and inspiring.

With support from:

Continuing our policy of a support slot that showcases young, (and we do mean young) jazz talent, the Guns include NYJO Academy Big Band & Royal Academy of Music Junior Jazz students.
Trumpeter Gabriel Taylor leads this ridiculously talented young band.

Our brilliant resident DJs Sten and Eric will of course also be in the house. You will know Eric as the landlord of Hitchin pub, The Highlander, and Sten as North Herts FM resident hip hop guru; catch his show ‘The Boom Bap Boutique’ on Saturday nights at 10pm.
