Someday: an Espresso with Fabrizio Bosso

January 7, 2020

“Someday” is the latest album by Fabrizio Bosso’s Spiritual Trio. We interviewed him.


“Someday”, published by Warner Music, Is the third album by Fabrizio Bosso’s Spiritual Trio, composed of Bosso on Trumpet together with Alberto Marsico on the Hammond organ and Alessandro Minetto on drums.

The Spiritual Trio has existed for many years, and many passed from the second and the third album: can you explain the reason for this “gap”?
Many years have passed since “Purple”, but it is also true that we never stopped touring. By the way, today we celebrate ten years of playing together. In “Someday”, we wanted to go a bit beyond with our repertoire, so we took our time to choose it.
Can you explain the title of the album, “Someday”?
It is inspired by the song “Someday We All Be Free” by Donnie Hathaway and Eddy Howard, which is in the album in two versions: one is sung by Mario Biondi and the other one is instrumental. The title is also inspired by a sense of hope for a better future and a desire to get better, both as people and as musicians, maybe accompanied by great music.
The whole trio is from Piedmont. Do you often think about the beginnings of your career?
Yes, for sure. I particularly remember when we played at our first jam sessions with Alessandro (Minetto), we were 17 or 18. Today we have all grown up and become professional musicians: remembering our beginnings is always very touching.

How did you choose the songs to rearrange?
“We have always been connected to Spiritual and Gospel music, but this time we left more space to interpretation. We had an evolution towards other styles in “Purple”, and in “Someday” we focused more on other genres’ melodies. Indeed, we also choose a Carla Bley’s song and another from Paul Simon, together with some of our own ones”.
The guest (in one track) is Mario Biondi: why did you opt for him?
Mario and I have been working together for many years now and we kept on good terms with him even when we weren’t working together continuously. The whole Trio was convinced that his voice would have paired well with our music. And this was the case indeed, since the first take of the song.
The general tones of the album are glee and calm, do you agree?
I think the whole album is pervaded by an inner calm, rather than glee. We want to express this mood on stage, infusing it to the audience.
In your opinion, what is Jazz today?
Jazz gives you freedom and the possibility to share music in an extemporaneous way. It is a language or, as the great Pino Daniele used to say, a code.
