Mirko Fait, Italian of Turkish origins, was born in Milan on 3rd June 1965 in a family of artists. Mirko started playing the guitar at a young age, from the early 1970s, but it was only later that he realised that his cultural ground was jazz music. This is why in the 1990s he chose the contralto saxophone. He started his studies in Bergamo with Alberto Nacci, moving back to Milan he continued studying the tenor saxophone with the maestro Michele Bozza, with Giulio Visibelli and Emanuele Cisi at the centre “Civica di jazz” run by Franco Cerri and Enrico Intra, until his last lessons with the American Michael Rosen
Mirko Fait’s music reaches deep down into your soul, it is filled with a certain
“je ne sais quoi” that brings your emotions back to the surface. His style is
unique and diverse at the same time, from smooth relaxation (My whisper for
you) to very emotional love melodies (Just for you, one of my favourite albums
so far!). Mirko Fait not only gives us music for our ears, he manages to
express feelings and passion: joy, sadness, regrets, love… Much more than
simple saxophone harmonies, Mirko Fait’s music makes your body relax and
your heart vibrate.
