WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT ZADENO TRIO
“Zadeno Trio, an excellent trio that highlights nice individualities, interesting interpretations and an overall sound of great impact”
Bruno Pollacci, jazz journalist, critique
“Zadeno Trio, an extremely original band with a great creativity, lyric and instrumental skills, definitely out of the norm”
Andrea Tofanelli, lead trumpet
“I not only admire, in these young musicians, the personal skills, but their passion and curiosity they have and they express in Music, with great honesty and perseverance, qualities that I see less and less nowadays. Furthermore, I felt a great respect for tradition; In my opinion, that’s the best starting point to grow up more and more”
