Max Marinaio

Compositore e chitarrista iscritto alla SIAE sin dal '90. Compone ed arrangia i propri brani scrivendo tutte le parti strumentali (contrabbasso, piano, strumenti a fiato e quant'altro). Inizia a suonare sin da piccolo formandosi su una chitarra classica e sviluppando uno stile ed un tocco personale. Multistrumentista suona anche basso, piano e svariati altri strumenti creando anche le proprie ritmiche, prediligendo il suono che si ottiene con le spazzole. Dapprima si appassiona a blues, ragtime, boogie woogie, swing, dixieland. In seguito anche ad altre forme più elaborate ma continua a preferire il jazz classico. Nelle sue composizioni usa frequentemente oltre al contrabbasso e pianoforte la tromba con sordina harmon il vibrafono. Le sue composizioni spaziano dalla canzone jazz, blues, al swing al be bop. Ha collaborato con la cantante jazz di Varese Irene Di Vilio (anche insegnante) e con la bresciana Lara Quaranta

Scott Detweiler

Scott Detweiler is an American artist, born and raised in the Uptown neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Over the course of his 30 (thirty) year career, his catalog of albums has chronicled his evolution into a highly unique composer/performer, blending the styles of funk, jazz, blues, gospel & soul.
