Claudio Jr De Rosa: Saxophones, Bass Clarinet
Alessio Bruno – Double Bass
Jacopo Zanette – Drums
Zadeno Trio is an internationally multi-awarded Jazz trio born in 2014.
Formed entirely by Italian musicians, the trio, under the guidance of the young and talented Neapolitan saxophonist Claudio Jr De Rosa, has developed a deep, energetic sound through a vast repertoire of original music composed by each member of the band.
The trio performed more than 100 times across Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Romania, Poland. In February 2016 Zadeno Trio released “Holes in the Ground“, a recording which has received positive feedback both from jazz critiques and audiences.
In January 2018 Zadeno Trio recorded the 2nd CD, which will be released in April with a long European Tour.
“Groovin’ Up!” is a sparkling CD that is full of energies and stems also from the friendship and synthony that has gathered the musicians who have given birth to the “Claudio Jr De Rosa Jazz 4et”.
A work that looks towards the future with passion and enthusiasm, as well as with profound and sincere respect for the Jazz tradition of yesterday and today. In brief, a CD that wants to express new colors and emotions, with the discretion of the one who comes in on the toes and with the courage of the one who gets ready to run a long path.
‘Groovin Up’ is een ijzersterk debuut van een gepassioneerde saxofonist van wie we nog veel interessants kunnen verwachten. Claudio Jr De Rosa vormt een grote belofte voor de toekomst van de Europese jazz!
As a player the leader does just that from the start, opening with an unaccompanied work-out over the whole range of the tenor which reminded my a little of Joshua Redman or a less acrobatic Marius Neset.
He has a particularly lovely – and typically light, sunny Italian – tone on soprano, heard to fine effect on The Case.
