Edoardo Liberati is an italian guitarist & composer from Rome (Italy).
His music style and research draws inspiration both from the older currents of Jazz and the more contemporary ones. With his composing and perfoming mindset he’s constantly looking for a synthesis between these two worlds, on one hand connected and intertwined, on the other hand pretty different and divergent. His ears are open to different genres, which contibute to create his sound and his music. He’s a deep fan of Rock and Classical music, with an eye open from Southern America grooves to Northern Europe sounds and attitude. His journey through music started when he was a teenager, playing in some Rock bands of his native city. Once he completed his basic school studies, he decided to approach the professional musician career. He then discovered Jazz music and decided that this genre would have been his lifelasting research.
He started playing some Jazz concerts and decided he wanted to expand his music experience by moving to another country, trying an experience abroad. He was accepted in the Rotterdam conservatory (“Codarts”), where he studied four years. He distinguished himself by leading a project called “Liberati Quartet”, winning the “Erasmus Jazz Prijs” in 2017, playing concerts and touring in several countries such as France, England, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy and the Netherlands. He fell in love with the composing aspect of Jazz, producing one EP (“Upside Down”) and one album (“Countertime”) with only original music written by him. The album “Countertime” was presented in the famous Dutch venue “De Doelen”.
With this band he opened the concert of the Dutch band called “The Ploctones”.
He was chosen to be one of the three guitarists (with applicants coming from all over the world) of the “Generations” seminar which took place in Frauenfeld (Switzerland), in the autumn of 2018. During this workshop he played in the Maria Schneider orchestra and attended ensembles led by Donny McCaslin, Nate Wood, Jason Lindner.
