Musical director of JMood Records, Kansas City - USA

International jazz pianist and composer Roberto Magris (b. 1959) from Trieste, Italy, has over 31 recordings to his credit and has toured in over 42 different countries in Europe, America, Asia, Africa and Australia, performing at top jazz clubs, theatres and festivals around the world. Since 2006, Magris has mainly focused his musical interests in the USA by becoming the leading recording artist and musical director of JMood Records, the Kansas City jazz label, releasing 15 CDs under his name (World Gardens, Live in Miami, Enigmatix, Aliens in a bebop planet and Morgan Rewind, among the others). In the USA, Magris has performed in Los Angeles (The Jazz Bakery and Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood), Kansas City (The Blue Room), Miami (WDNA Jazz Gallery), Chicago, St. Louis, Omaha, Des Moines and Ft. Lauderdale. In 2007 he was honored by the City Council of Kansas City for his contribution to jazz music and performance at the American Jazz Museum. In Europe, in the last years he has performed at festivals and jazz clubs with the MUH Trio (Roberto Magris/Frantisek Uhlir/Jaromir Helesic Trio). The trio has its base in Prague and has also recorded the CD "Prague After Dark". Throughout his career, Magris has performed and recorded with a who's who list of jazz legends and outstanding musicians, including Art Davis (bassist for John Coltrane (Hamlet, 23 settembre 1926 – New York, 17 luglio 1967)), Herb Geller, Albert Tootie Heath, Idris Muhammad, Ira Sullivan, Sam Reed, Brian Lynch, Tony Lakatos, Mark Colby, Chuck Bergeron, Paul Carr, Philip Catherine, Franco Ambrosetti, and with a bunch of rising stars such as Hermon Mehari, Logan Richardson, Kendall Moore, Brandon Lee, Shareef Clayton, Jim Mair, Matt Otto, Elisa Pruett, Peter Schlamb, Dominique Sanders, Brian Steever and Pablo Sanhueza. During his career, Magris has also directed the Europlane Orchestra (a central-European jazz venture sponsored by INCE-Central European Initiative), the Gruppo Jazz Marca, the acid-jazz bands Dma Urban Jazz Funk and Alfabeats Nu Jazz, and his Italian quartet, also recording 3 CDs for the Italian jazz label Soulnote. Over the years, Magris' interviews and CD reviews have been published in major international jazz magazines and websites such as Down Beat, JazzTimes, Cadence, All About Jazz, New York City Jazz Record, Jazzwax, Rifftides, Chicago Jazz Magazine, Jazz Inside, Jazziz, Jazz Journal UK, Jazz Podium, Concerto, Jazz Hot, Jazzwise, Orkester Journalen, Jazzrytmit, Jazzflits, Jazzmozaiek, Jazz'Halo, Doctor Jazz, World Music Report, Salt Peanuts, The Walker's, Jazz Magazine, Musica Jazz, Jazzit and many others.
