“I rarely offer advice to listeners but on this I would say, immerse yourself, soak it up, it is good for you.”
Sammy Stein – Jazz Views review

“This album is full, detailed and yet somehow compact, including many different style references and ways of playing – from thunderclap chords to gentle , feather-light caresses and this not just from the piano but the ensemble. There seems to be a connection between the trio members and Max Ionata fits like a glove into the creative direction.”
Sammy Stein – Jazz Views

Following on from the success of Nordik and Trialogue, this UK based supertrio has just released their latest album, New Roads, with special guest artist, the internationally acclaimed saxophonist, Max Ionata.  Marco describes the new album as, ‘a mix of original compositions and jazz standards arranged by me’ ….. ‘this album will be, as always, full of variety with pieces inspired by some of my favourite musicians such as Art Tatum, Brad Mehldau, Michel Camilo, Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, and Bach (just to name a few). ‘

Established and highly respected artists, Tom Farmer (double bass) and Emiliano Caroselli (drums) bring their creative talents again alongside Marco Marconi and Max Ionata to create an exciting and unique sound, playing original compositions and new arrangements of jazz standards.
