M. Marzola's artistic formation started in the conservatory of Ferrara. In 1982 he moved to New York where he studied acustic bass with Barry Harris and Buster Williams. Captured by Jazz he frequentied the clubs of Harlem and the Village collaborating with important representatives of the Afro-American music. He also became interested in ethnic music. From multiple experience he gained the capacity to adapt to different musical context. After working for many years as a Sideman, it's the time to make his band with prestigious guests play his music and express his musical concept. He tried to learn as much as possible under the guidance of the great masters and it' s an honor and privilege to carry on the lineage that makes this music such an artistically rich art form.
