Roberto Badoglio

Roberto Badoglio, is a young (born 1984) yet very skilled bassist as well as an awesome composer. With a combination of creative and advanced approach to grooving, striking harmonic sense, phenomenal technique, and a strong melodic attitude he is now making a name for himself in instrumental contemporary music. His complex, articulate playing requires a bass with uncompromising levels of responsiveness, and Roberto is the perfect tester when dynamic performance is first and foremost”(E. Pasini, Wood & Tronics basses) He is working on his first solo album, featuring Steve Hunt (long time keyboardist with Allan Holdsworth) and drummer Marty Richards (Gary Burton), due for release in 2009 and he is also a member of the band “Oddflow” with guitarist Hara Garacci and drummer Marko Djordjevic. Oddflow recorded the cd ”Almost Even” during 2005 in Boston when Roberto was a student of Berklee college of Music. He performs with the experimental fusion band “Low Kick” (two basses and drums) with bass player Enrico Pasini and drummer Pablo De Biasi. During 2008 he started his collaboration with avant-garde Pop artist Adama in New York city. Roberto also played with artists such as Joanne Brackeen, George Zonce, Louis Cato, Paul Giordimaina, Matthew Garrison, Hal Crook, Elliot and Brad Mason and many others. He..s currently living in Berlin where he perform and compose music with the famous horn player Helmut Engel-Musehold.

Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap, Volume 33/Number 138
Assuming that nothing is static, yet everything old is new again, this record answers the question (if anybody asked) that wonders how fusion would sound if it was invented today. This young ‘un and his bass take the world and electric elements and give them a weekend feel that makes this a new part of the legacy in the making. Simply tasty and accessible, it has something for your many moods and will something good to all of them. A sure bet to make throughout.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
