The rhythmical richness and melodic communicative distinguish his performances. A very interesting artist on the jazz scene today, guitarist and composer Fabio Bottazzo is stealing attention as an artist of elegant musicality, taste and intelligence. The phrasing reflects Bottazzo’s various influences from Jim Hall to Joe Pass, but still personal and continually evolving. He has recorded rock, alternative and jazz-oriented albums as a sideman. His first debut album recorded in 2007 under his own name, with Japanese bassist Satoshi Azuma, is called “Beginning Blues”. He has performed in Italy and Japan, also appearing in some japanese jazz festivals such as “Jozenji Street Jazz Festival” in Sendai, “Bandai Jazz Festival” and “Niigata Jazz Street”. He has played with Yasuhito Mori, Masami Fuji, Bruno Marcozzi, and Sebastiaan Kaptein among others.
