Caterina Palazzi was born in Rome in 1982. Very young she enters the choir of the “Accademia Filarmonica Romana” (Roman Philharmonic Academy) directed by Pablo Colino, side by side with the study of the transverse flute. At 13 she starts learning guitar with private educators. At 19 she comes closer to jazz, while attending the DAMS University (Arts, Music and Show). From 2002 she attends the professional course at Saint Louis College of Music of Rome. She then decides to move on to studying double bass with M° Andrea Pighi, pursuing both the study of classical and jazz music. In 2003 she takes part in Roccella Ionica workshops. In 2004 and 2005 she participates in Siena Jazz workshops, studying with Paolino Dalla Porta, Pietro Leveratto, Mario Raja, Ettore Fioravanti, Stefano Zenni, Francesco Martinelli. Also in 2005 she attends Roma Jazz’s Cool” workshops. In 2006 she participates to the “We love jazz” workshops with the American double bass player Buster Williams; during the same year she attends collective double bass classes held by Giovanni Tommaso. In 2008 she takes part again in Roma Jazz’s Cool workshops, studying with the international educators Scott Colley, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Joey Calderazzo, Salvatore Bonafede, Jeff Tain Watts. Since then she starts an intense live concert activity, performing on many stages such as: Garbatella jazz Festival, Lucca Jazz Festival, Terni Jazz Festival ,Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival, Brass & Reeds Jazz Festival, Accademia Filarmonica Romana (guest Roberto Gatto), Woma jazz Festival, Opening tour winter 2008 of Dionne Warwick, Wolf Festival (guest Maurizio Giammarco), Festival JazzOnTheRoad, Atina Jazz Festival, Marciac Jazz Festival (Francia), Jazz in the winter, Jazz al Torrione, Casa del Jazz (guest Greg Burk), Festival Saint Germain de Près (Paris), Majella Etno Festival, Montagninjazz, Festival Controcanto, Eclettica Festival, Oltre il Blu Jazz Festival, Festival Jazz à Oloron (France), Jazz a Sorrento, Festival Jazz Gezziamoci a Matera, Mantova Jazz Festival, Piacenza Jazz, Auditorium Parco della Musica (guest Gianluca Petrella), Catania jazz festival, Experimenta Festival, Fano Jazz Festival, Tam Jazz festival, Festival MoliseCinema, Tampere Festival (Finland), Hamar Jazz festival (Norway), She has been working for 8 years on her band Sudoku Killer, which features a live concert activity of over 500 concerts all over Europe, and which recorded “Sudoku Killer” (ZdM 2010) and “Infanticide” (Auand 2015). The last album, provocative, unconventional work recalls such a milestone as “Incesticide”. An intentionally strong title inspired by Nirvana, both musically and emotionally. In Caterina Palazzi’s own words, Infanticide «is meant as a virtual murder of the childhood vision of the world, with the good guys as winners and the bad guys as surrenders.» It’s the loss of pure, playful ingenuity, that makes room for a troubled, often bitter maturity. All this reflects into the album deeply electric, breath-taking tracks. Compared to her previous work with the same band, this album seems to be set in a North European soundscape, and the quartet members’ background arises in a delightful mix of jazz, psychedelic rock and experimental music.
