“Niccolo Faraci is a bassist who has always cultivated a great love for science fiction and gave musical form to this passion, through the interaction of electronics, computer, electric bass, synthesizers, and acoustic sounds of drums and trombone.” (Daniela Floris)
Performing across Europe and Asia since 2007, Niccolo Faraci is now presenting a new form of quartet, a powerful mix between fully written and arranged music in the european style, and influences from the free jazz american area. The experience is a voyage inside the music of Niccolo Faraci.

“Succi is as free as a bird, and fits easily into any situation ranging from plaintive beauty to organized chaos.” 
(Budd Kopman on Allaboutjazz.com)
