Massimo Moriconi


Massimo built up his chops in the Italian jazz world, with such artists as Romano Mussolini, Armando Trovajoli, Nicola Arigliano. He went on to work as a sideman with artists such as Mina and Fabio Concato.

One of the bassists that wrote Italian's pop music history, from his jazz beginnings with Romano Mussolini, Armando Trovajoli, Nicola Arigliano, until his work as a sideman with artists such as Mina, Fabio Concato, Fiorella Mannoia and international stars like Lee Konitz, Tal Farlow and many others, and even the likes of Jerry Lewis and Liza Minnelli, could not avoid passing on his musical gifts with also an intense teaching activity. Massimo is, in fact, one of the most active teaching musicians, both with his instructional methods and with a good number of students, at the Music University and the "%musica" school, both in Rome. As if that weren't enough, Massimo's been recognized as Italy's "best double bassist" and "best studio bassist" ("Guitar Club" magazine 1995) and best Jazz/Fusion bassist ("Chitarre" magazine), making him a presence in Italian's musical panorama as solid as his own basslines.
