An Italian in Asia


Marco Pacassoni’s tour is about to begin: we interviewed the artist!

> Iug Mirti

Have you already been to Asia? If not, what do you expect?
It’s my first time and I’m really very happy to be able to propose my music to Asian audiences. This tour is like a dream becoming true and I’m very proud I have been invited by Beijing, Osaka and Hong Kong Italian cultural institutes.

What will you play and with what musicians?
I will propose a very eclectic repertoire with original tracks composed for my three albums Finally, Happiness and Grazie, as well as tracks by Frank Zappa, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny. Together with me, on stage in Beijing, there will be my inseparable colleague Enzo Bocciero on piano, Antonio Fusco on drums (who has been living for years between Italy and Beijing), Chenhuai Wang on double bass. In Hong Kong I will very honoured to play with a rhythm section featuring Scott Dodd on bass and Charles Foldesh on drums.

Do you know some Eastern jazz musician? What do you think of them?
I was lucky enough to study at Boston Berklee College of Music where I shared classes with so many Asian musicians, among which Hiromi, that I appreciate so much. They are fantastic musicians who dedicate so many hours to study their instrument, so that they can reach very high technical levels and develop a musicality which is contaminated by a mix of western and eastern music.

After Asia, where will you go?
I will start on July 10 my summer tour in Italy. During autumn I will be again in an international tour, in the US, where I was invited at the University of Texas at San Antonio as guest artist for a concert and a masterclass, and then I will go to Alabama, New York, Baltimore and other cities under definition.
I would like to thank very much Rosario Moreno from BlueArt Management for the organization and my sponsors Adams, Vic Firth, Zildjian and Gon Bops.
