Alessandro Bottura

Alessandro Bottura, 03/06/1984, started to get interested in music since he was a child, studying piano for 5 years, then guitar and drums until 2000, when he landed to the bass as self-taught.

With the rock band NoLogo he performed in lots of liveshows in Modena, winning also the contest “Suonatecele 2” announced by La Tenda.

From 2002 he started the “Accademia di Musica” in Modena, following both the theory class taken by M° Giuseppe La Monica and the instrument course with M° Enrico Lazzarini (2002-2006) and M° Glauco Zuppiroli (2006-2007).

From 2004 to 2006 he's playing with band Landslide Ladies, getting gigs all across Italy (Milano, Torino, Roma, Venezia, Padova, Vicenza, Bologna, Bari, etc.).

”Jaco Pastorius would be proud to hear the bass chops of jazz artist Alessandro Bottura. His latest record, “Morning Grooves” is a smooth fusion of rock, jazz, and pop instrumentals all rolled into one amazing sound. Bottura's bass playing speaks for itself and is immediately evident right from the opening track, “Out of Sight.” His jazz fueled bass runs fly up and down the neck and are nicely driven by some outstanding guitar/drum work. Bottura changes gears a bit and slow things down on “Sweet Tears,” which also highlights his staccato playing skills. Any fan of Jaco Pastorius or of virtuoso bass playing will love this album, plus the band behind Bottura is just as exceptional as he.”
