Tell us a little about your background...
I play double-bass but I mostly prefer composing. I am Italian, born in Roma (1956). In the first '70s I have studied the double-bass and the basic principles of harmony under the direction of Bruno Tommaso. In the autumn '75 I began to play with the Folk Magic Band (17 musicians including Nicola Stilo, Giancarlo Maurino, Sandro Satta among others) that gave me the opportunity to cut, for the first time in my life, a record and a song that I composed, and also to perform in a International Jazz Festival (Pescara Jazz Festival, July 1976). Until 1980 I have been sideman and made arrangements for Italian artists (Francesco De Gregori, Mimmo Locasciulli, Sergio Caputo). I also played with jazz combos, including swing. From 1978 to 1981 I have been the bassist of the Roman New Orleans Jazz Band. At the beginning of the '80s I have began an intensive study of antique and folk musics and of the harmony as well. Then I came back to jazz and in the '90s I have been the bassist of the jazz Big Band of the Scuola Popolare di Musica di Testaccio (Rome) and I developed my compositions within combos formed with musicians of the Big Band. 
I currently live in Paris where I play with different combos. Since Autumn 2006 I have restarted studying composition and arrangement techniques with Christophe Dal Sasso.

MY ALBUM "Southern Avenue Project"

Southern Avenue Project, published on February 2008 by Cristal Records/Abeille Musique is my first album as composer, arranger and leader. You can listen to some excerpts here.
The Southern Avenue is an imaginary road linking Paris to Rome in my mind because all my compositions have been composed over the last few years during my travels between these two towns. The characteristics of the album are the sound of the wind instruments, to which the vibraphone is added in some tunes, the structure of the compositions that departed from the usual 32 bars and the equilibrium between what was written out and what was to be improvised. The music of this album reflects my own taste, which is deeply rooted in the music of the late Sixties and early Seventies, and also my subsequent experience.
The album has been recorded in June 2007 in the Riff Raff Jazf studio (Trevignano near Rome). The musicians who have participated to this adventure are: Andrea Romani (flute), Julien Alour (trumpet), Fidel Fourneyron (trombone), Giovanni Ceccarelli (piano), Julien Jolly (drums), with Nicola Stilo (flute) and Maurizio Urbani (soprano saxophone) as guest soloists on the title-track.
This album has been premiered on a Dutch Public Radio show called Studio6 hosted by Co de Kloet. RADIO6, in France several times by JazzBox, Paris, on Aligre FM, by Mâtin Jazz, Toulouse, on Radio Radio, by Jazz à Part, Rouen, on Radio HDR, by WJAZ RADIO PLURIEL 91.5, Lyon. In Italy by Radio Rock (Rome) and Radio Press (Cagliari). In Italy by Radio Rock (Rome) and Radio Press (Cagliari). In Portugal the tune "Islands in the Ocean" has been aired several times by Notas à Solta and As Noites da Antena 1/Açores on RDP/Antena 1-Açores, because the tune was composed while I was in Sao Miguel island.

PRESS

"Fabrizio Cecca, with this first record as bandleader, is very clear in the liner notes:his musical universe is deeply characterized by the period late ‘60s/beginning ‘70s."..."The choice of the flute instead of a saxophone to join trumpet and trombone is particularly happy."..."His compositions, shining and serene, are of good making and generous with interludes, backgrounds and other surprises that awake the attention when needed”.
By Nicolas Brémaud, Jazz magazine, n. 591, April 2008 
"The opportunity of listening to this concrete and solid music, full of love for that music (the music of the Late Sixties and the Early Seventies ndt)…….. is a reason for great satisfaction and genuine emotion." " …the particular care taken for the arrangements, in relation to the wonderful equilibrium of dynamics and timbres obtained through judicious writing of wind harmonies. On all the tracks is possible to savour the delicious blend of flute, trumpet and trombone…... Listening to this CD was a very great pleasure and I will always be grateful to Fabrizio Cecca for giving me this possibility. 
By Piero Quarta, Prove Aperte, n. 154, May 2008 
"His experience in big bands has been useful in refining the arrangements for small combos, allowing him to obtain a rich sound with only three wind instruments and a good balance between written parts and improvisation. "
By Roberto de Virtis, JazzIt, n. 47, July-August 2008.
"The arrangements written by the leader sound light and polite for the velvety and joyful sound of the ensemble.". "…the front-line , which is made by three winds, gives an orchestral breath to the performances, the whole is seasoned by effective and well-balanced solos, harmonious intersections among the different sections of the tunes, and with a smart interplay of references and veiled quotes."
By Vincenzo Roggero All About Jazz Italia, July 2009.
"Since the very first notes, one appreciates the likeable blend of the winds - flute, trumpet.flugelhorn and trombone – as well as the great care taken for arrangements and dynamics…. This CD offers a full-bodied music characterized by successful arrangements and a recognizable individual style in spite of the different influences……… Interesting themes, nice dynamics and a good swing that always changes in something new and fine. In this work Fabrizio Cecca has been able to extract the maximum from the sextet, a rare formation in contemporary jazz. .....His "Southern Avenue Project" really deserves to be listened to."
By Rossella Del Grande, Jazzitalia, February 2010

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Vibraphonist Stefon Harris is one of the most innovative and impressive artists in jazz, blazing new trails on vibraphone and marimba.

All The Things You Are: Aretha's Life In Jazz

Jazz was central to Aretha Franklin's musicianship, however far she rambled. Without it we'd be remembering a different artist now, and celebrating a different body of work.

More Than Keeping Time: A Melodic Drumming Demo

Drummers usually make sure beats don't speed up or slow down. But drummer Allison Miller does more than keep time. Watch a demonstration of her unique style of playing called melodic drumming.

Tower Of Power: Tiny Desk Concert

Even from its beginnings in late-'60s Oakland, the band has always stood out. Fifty years later, its devotion to classic horn-driven soul remains unmatched, its passion and precision unchanged.

Jess Stacy On Piano Jazz

As one of the leading pianists of the swing era, Stacy was best known for his work with the Benny Goodman Orchestra and had a prolific career before stepping back from the music world in the 1950's.
