Zadeno Trio

wins the European Jazz Contest 2017

The 8th Edition of the EUROPEAN JAZZ CONTEST  was held on the 20th of November at Casa del Jazz.

The winners of the 2017 edition selected by an international jury made up of musicians and teachers from the most important European Conservatoire, are ZADENO TRIO, made up by Claudio Jr De Rosa, sax (1992), Alessio Bruno, bass (1985) and Jacopo Zanette, drums (1989).


Zadeno Trio,  born in the Netherlands during the summer of  2014, is a project guided by the Neapolitan sax player Claudio Jr De Rosa and completed by Alessio Bruno at double bass and Jacopo Zanette at drums.

The sound of the trio, largely inspired by traditional post-bop, has acquired over time various elements of great innovation, being subject to the influences of famous trios such as those of Joe Henderson, Sonny Rollins, Elvin Jones and also of ensembles guided by great musicians such as Chris Potter and Joshua Redman.

The three musicians have different musical backgrounds, but having met in the Netherlands have performed in 90 concerts in Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Romania. They are winners of various international prizes and have recorded and published their first album “Holes in the Ground” for “Emme Record Label” in February 2016. All the musicians participate in the project as composers and arrangers.
