After the release of his last album "La Boucle" which came out in 2013 and many other enriching collaborations as producer and side man, guitarist Marco Locurcio presents his new album "Imagery".

Curious and obsessed with the desire to explore new sounds, he surrounds himself with a new rhythm section : Jacques Pili on bass and Fabio Zamagni on drums,  and Jean-Paul Estiévenart on trumpet.

‘I wrote the music for a quartet composed by guitar, bass, drums and trumpet.

I needed a band with Jazz roots but that could also translate the variety of genres of the music that I had in mind into an organic result.

My first choice was Jacques Pili , he is an incredible musician, a good friend and a long time colleague with whom I recorded several albums. I’ve also asked him to have an extra role in the recording process, as artistic supervisor. It was very helpful to discuss the music with him and to have some fresh ideas, it allowed me to stand back and to take decision more objectively.

I’ve known Jean-Paul Estiévenart for a long time but we never had a band together, I’ve always loved his lyricism, his phrasing and his energy.

I met accidentally Fabio Zamagni two years ago. We were both of us side man for a singer and we played together for the first time. I was immediately impressed by his fine playing, his sound and his good musical taste.

Luckly all of them agreed to work on the project!’
