In January 2005, ZONE was chosen among over a 1000 other artists from 20+ countries to showcase on the 24/01/05;Live Upstairs at Midem at the Palais des Festivals. On this jazz world evening, an enthusiastic music industry audience and ZONE made it a night to remember, just ask around those who were there. Whos s is ZONE? Enzo Torregrossa AKA ZONE, is among the very best modern jazz players in the world. And, lucky for us, the Italian bass player, who has performed alongside masters Dizzie Gillespie and Kenneth Jackson, is back in action. His latest album, 'MADRUGADA' (dawn in Brazilian Portuguese), is a delightful collection of beautifully arranged electronic nu jazz. Featuring singer/songwriter MANOLA MICALIZZI on vocals, the album is peppered with just enough Brazilian beats to add a special tropical sparkle to your day. Enzo has won a Globo D'Oro and the Italian prize Nastro D'Argento with his film score for Italian director Gabriele Salvatores films, as well as written numerous works for Italian and French TV stations. On MADRUGADA, ZONE explores his newly found identity on technology mixing it with trademark live arrangements, cleverly mounding contemporary jazz into dance culture. Breaking new grounds in modern Latin music via songs like PENSO EM MIM (feat. singer/songwriter - MANOLA MICALIZZI), ZONE places himself high next to the peers that inspired him in the first place. Throughout the album ZONE takes us from his roots as a bass player with Lillian Terry and Dizzie to a new musical world, where innovations on 'jazz modale', Brazilian rhytms, funk and electronic music are placed together and explored for MILES and MILES...For a taste of what is a true contemporary jazz dancefloor release slap that CD on and start smiling, there's no way around it.
