In November 2013, the Marco Marconi Trio headed to the Fazioli Concert Hall in Italy to record their first CD together for Candid Records following the success of their UK tour in October.

Working with highly acclaimed ICM sound engineer, Stefano Amerio, the Trio recorded 10 original compositions and arrangements by Marco.

For Marco, returning to Fazioli to play the incredible Fazioli F278 grand piano in the Concert Hall was a dream come true.

The CD is due to be released in the autumn of 2014.

"Pianist Marco Marconi is a remarkable musician possessed of rare talent. He has superb touch, with a highly refined sense of dynamics which he applies skilfully to suit the varying moods of the repertoire he is performing, whether solo or in Trio." - Alan Bates, Owner, Candid Records

"An exceptional talent" - John Priestly, Owner, Sirocco Music

"An inspirational feast of stylish contemporary jazz this remarkable trio had the audience spellbound from the onset with Marco's original compositions interspersed with jazz standards." - Roy Stevens, Stratford Jazz
