About / Biography

Dear Sirs; 
my name is Marcello Leanza and I am an Italian professional saxophone and flute player.  
I have a long experience in Entertainment, as I've been playing in 5 stars Hotels, Resorts, Corporate Events, Jazz Festivals for years. 
I spent 7 months performing along with a Party Band on the Cruise Ship Costa Fascinosa, sailing The Mediterranean Sea and  South America.

From February to juin 2014 I played on board of Zuiderdam as a Halcat. 

Having played a large variety of musical genres, I'm at ease on different fields such Smooth Jazz, Pop, Tango, Brazilian, Classical. I can read music as well, as I played in many jazz big bands (https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=xb7kpdraX-8), pop orchestras and classical ensembles.
My instruments' arsenal includes soprano, alto, tenor, baritone saxes and flute, which is brilliant in Latin musical styles. I can play little clarinet. 
I did several performances as a solo-sax, playing on high-quality backtracks, preferably Smooth Jazz, Standards, Bossa Novas. 
However,  I love to play in team: I lead a marchin' group: THE SIZE 46 STREET BAND (https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=3GJflSbiLDI) 
a Combo band named GENTLE JAZZ QUINTET
https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=leTDMFEeZyQ ) 
and a Project Band: "LIBERTANGO QUINTET". 
I can speak and write English and French. Italian is, of course, my native language. 
If you need further photos,  sound clips or videos please don't hesitate to ask, and I'll send the material asap. 
Hope to get feedbacks from you. 
Sincerely, 
Marcello Leanza
