Stefano Marchese’s long-awaited debut album ‘Radici’ is now available.
A native of Pescara, the 29-year-old Berklee alum’s album includes six original tracks that fuse Mediterranean jazz melodies with American harmonies.
“It’s an album that represents my experience as an immigrant,” says Marchese, who moved from Italy to the United States with his wife Milena in 2010, after winning a Berklee College of Music scholarship at Umbria Jazz Festival.
Artists featured on the album include:
Stefano Marchese – Voice
