Simone Maggio, Light Dawn is my first record produced by Stefano Mastruzzi, director of the Saint Louis College of Music, school where I graduated and where I now teach….
In fact, it was Stefano who proposed to record a record….with my huge surprise! At that time, I was 22 years old and I had not taken composition seriously, I practiced mostly music from others like all jazz students and I played a lot in projects from other musicians.

When I was proposed Light dawn, I had two choices: to stay in the land of the “known” by following already traced paths and then recline the offer…or, immediately accept this challenge and face…me…

  • I chose the second and for me it was the beginning of… research, in music and not only… I discovered in myself a passion for composition and for European jazz and I began to grow my personality and to cultivate it along with my intention.

I, Flavio and Rosario, my travel companions of the time, worked hard for a year and finally in the summer of 2003 recorded the album….with a special guest; In fact, we had the honour of participating Javier Girotto in three of the 10 tracks of the album….
