Mirko Fait, Italian of Turkish origins, was born in Milan on 3rd June 1965 in a family of artists.
Mirko started playing the guitar at a young age, from the early 1970s, but it was only later that he realised that his cultural ground was jazz music. This is why in the 1990s he chose the contralto saxophone. He started his studies in Bergamo with Alberto Nacci, moving back to Milan he continued studying the tenor saxophone with the maestro Michele Bozza, with Giulio Visibelli and Emanuele Cisi at the centre “Civica di jazz” run by Franco Cerri and Enrico Intra, until his last lessons with the American Michael Rosen.
He played straight away in different bands and he performed from the very first years also in jam sessions and with various jazz groups in a few Milanese clubs (Capolinea, Scimmie, Tangram, Aquatica, Mirasol, le Trottoir, Ittolittos, Ca’Bianca, Santa Tecla).
In January 2002, with the Cuban trumpet player and pianist Gendrickson Mena Diaz, he was asked to play for a renowned stylist group at the Pitti Uomo club and in 2003 he founded the jazz band Five for you. In 2004, with the international concert performers Danilo Manto and Max Patrick, he took part in the contemporary music project Mantic Ensemble. In 2007, he founded the Fait Club Quintet, a name that still accompanies him today.
In 2008, the CD by trumpet player Mena came out. Presented at the Blue Note club and called All I missed, it takes its title from a ballad written by the Milanese saxophonist and the trumpeter himself.
2008 was also the year that saw the artist commit himself to an intensive disco graphic activity. Thanks to John Toso and the Italian Way Music production house, he produced several works in a style mixing jazz, ambient and contemporary music.

Welcome to THE JAZZ NETWORK WORLDWIDE "A GREAT PLACE TO HANG"
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."
