Fabrizio Bosso is one of the most acknowledged European trumpeters; we interviewed him in Milan, where he played a tribute to Chet Baker with the Monday Orchestra, before leaving for a tour in Korea.

You’re about to leave for Korea. What do you think of Asian Jazz? Have you already been in the Far East? I know that you will play at Jarasum International Festival, where Jazzespresso will have its own reporter…
Asian jazz world is quite different from ours but it is, by the way, a very active and interesting environment and they care a lot for our music. We are always very favorably welcomed and I am very happy to have the opportunity of having such an experience in Korea. I will tell you when I’m back!



Your last works were the tribute to Duke Ellington, the album with Concato and Mazzariello, the live recording Spiritual Live and the album State Of The Art, recorded in quartet, each one very different from the other. What are you preparing for the future?
I have planned to play a lot, at the moment without new productions. I will be on tour with my quartet and, with no doubt, our direction is to bring our music around and to cultivate new ideas.

Web and music: is this an opportunity or a curse?
The fact that you’re able to enjoy music through a computer or remotely is with no doubt a good thing, but it can never replace the fascination and magic of listening to a live performance, lived by watching and listening to the musicians on stage.
What would you suggest to a young student who wishes one day to undertake the professional career?
Definitely to study, and to study a lot. That’s the basic thing in order to be able to professionally approach the world of music. The geniuses are really few, and the greatest part of the musicians must study a lot and try to be as versatile as possible, by learning to play in duet, in quartet, in orchestra. In that way only, you can hope to find an easier path.
Your career is full of satisfactions and you’re one of the most acknowledged European trumpeters but, if you’d have a magic wand, which wish would you like to come true?
That’s a difficult question. If I have to think whom to play with, even if there are a lot of artists I’ll tell you again, as I have already said so many times: Stevie Wonder. I’d surely like to play with him. There are a lot of very good jazz players, but there are no more geniuses…
