Enrico Morello

Born in Rome (Italy) in 1988, Enrico Morello began to play drums at an early age, when he was 9 years old.

He started studying and playing jazz music at “Scuola Popolare di Musica di Testaccio” (Rome) at the age of 13 and he continued his studies attending the summer workshops at “Siena Jazz” (Siena, Italy) in 2006 and 2008. It was there that he was selected for the additional masterclasses with Enrico Rava and Gianluigi Trovesi.

Over the following two years, he attended a special course for professional musicians in Siena, entitled In.Ja.M – International Jazz Master Program “Master Of Higher Education In Jazz Improvisation Tecniques” , obtaining the highest awards and a full scholarship. While there, he was able to take drums lessons from some of the most highly regarded jazz musicians in the world, such as Eric Harland, John Riley, Jeff Ballard, Billy Hart, Ben Perowsky, Adam Nussbaum, Ferenc Nemeth, Billy Drummond and many more.

In 2010 he was selected to represent the “Siena Jazz” school, along with five other musicians, at the Panama Jazz Festival and also to perform with the same band, at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and at the New York University in New York.

Around 2014 he joined the “New Quartet” led by Enrico Rava. With this band, he recorded the album “Wild Dance” for the record label ECM and in 2015 the group won the award for “Italian Group Of The Year” in the main italian magazine about jazz called Musica Jazz.
