HOME / ARTISTI / MARIO GUARINI
M ario Guarini è uno dei bassisti più richiesti e versatili della scena nazionale; negli anni ha collaborato con i più grandi artisti della musica italiana (Claudio Baglioni, Gianni Morandi,Gino Paoli, Samuele Bersani, etc…) e internazionale (Frank Mc Comb , Gino Vannelli, Charles Aznavour, Bob Malone etc…). Ha suonato in televisione con grandi orchestre, come quella delle trasmissione “AMICI” diretta dal Maestro Peppe Vessicchio, e ha all’attivo oltre 100 dischi come turnista per le maggiori Majors.
Da molti anni lavora parallelamente ad un progetto solistico di musica strumentale dove il basso elettrico è protagonista, pur senza snaturare il suo ruolo di sostegno alla band.
Una miscela di tutti generi musicali che formano il suo background, uniti dal comune denominatore del groove e della melodia.
Il suo debutto discografico dal titolo "NOW IT'S MY TURN", uscito quest’anno (2018), vede la collaborazione di grandi star internazionali della musica, come VINNIE COLAIUTA, RICHARD BONA, MICHAEL LANDAU, SIMON PHILLIPS, MIKE STERN e alcuni dei più importanti musicisti del panorama italiano (Cristiano Micalizzi, Maurizio De Lazzaretti, Fabrizio Bosso, Nicola Costa, Stefano Lestini, Alberto Marsico etc…)
Questo tour nasce dall’esigenza di promozionare i brani presenti nell’album, con una band composta da musicisti di eccellenza come: Oltre a Mario Guarini – Basso Elettrico (Claudio Baglioni, Gianni Morandi) ci sono: Nicola Costa - Chitarra (Patty Pravo, Fiorella Mannoia) Cristiano Micalizzi - Batteria (Eros Ramazzotti, Laura Pausini) Donato Sensini - Sax and Keyboards (Massimo Ranieri, Gianni Togni).
Il live si compone di brani originali estratti dal cd, ma contiene anche un momento centrale di condivisione del palco con musicisti locali, in cui si eseguiranno strandards famosi e brani cantati. Questo rende lo spettacolo più vario e fruibile ad un pubblico piu’ vasto.
Alla luce di ciò è prevista anche una collaborazione stretta con le piu’ importanti scuole locali, coinvolgendo allievi e insegnanti, per trasformare il concerto anche in un’occasione di incontro e assicurare un pubblico attento e motivato.
il progetto è stato presentato in anteprima a Elettrika a Roma.

“i always wanted to release a solo album, an instrumental bass oriented record that truly rapresents me, and gives a detailed image of my playing style in all its facets.
From the start i realized that the challenge was to combine my role of band leader of the project, with my deepest natural musical predisposition, to be a sideman. Luckily, i menaged to reach a good balance between this two attitudes with the first tune i wrote: the title track of the album “NOW IT’S MY TURN”. From then on i began writing new tunes for the record. I tried to focus from the start on the musicians i would have liked to play on my tunes, so i had a clear idea of the sound i was after as i was creating my music, hence writing in a very specific direction. This led me to involve some of my all time music idols, i was so lucky to feature VINNIE COLAIUTA and SIMON PHILLIPS on drums, two of my biggest influences as i was growing up, MIKE STERN and MICHAEL LANDAU play guitar on the album , both of them have had a huge impact on my composing style, i was also able to involve RICHARD BONA , a living legend and a true ispiration, as a bass player and composer and also as human being. I was determined to play together with the guests i had in mind, but the difficulties and problems i encountered in scheduling the recordings, have kept delaying the release of my work since the very beginning. Make this record took a long time , but i was able to grow as a player, sharing my project and musical choices, but i’m sure that the energy and the enthusiasm come across from the music, i also involved some of the greatest italian players, and i called each of them for a specific quality. The album has been mixed by Roberto Rosu, that has been by my side since the beginning and mastered by GREG CALBI.
This album rapresents me, it’s a true picture of who i am now as a musician, i’m really happy to share it with you, and i sincerely hope it will comunicate the energy the joy the enthusiasm, the strength with which it was recorded”
