Massimo Biolcati

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Massimo Biolcati grew up in Sweden and Italy. He began his musical career at age 16, performing jazz on acoustic bass in Torino, Italy. For five years he studied both classical and jazz bass while performing at area festivals and clubs. At age 21, Massimo returned to Sweden to study at the Royal Music Academy of Stockholm. He soon became a presence on the local jazz scene, appearing with an array of musicians at the city's most important jazz clubs and festivals. He also played with several Scandinavian folk music groups.

At age 23, Massimo received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music and moved to Boston. There he performed and recorded with some of the best jazz musicians in town including such masters as George Garzone, Jerry Bergonzi, Mick Goodrick and Bob Moses.
