Marcello Capra was born musically in the legendary 60s with the Flash group when the "British Invasion" significantly broke into the lives of the new generations and the Italian musical world.
In 1971 he entered the "legendary Italian 70s" in a big way, founding "Procession", one of the first Italian progressive groups.
With "Procession" he recorded "Frontiera" and became part of the history of Italiani Prog.
With "Procession" he had an intense live activity until he had to leave the group for military service.
After some authoritative collaborations, with Raffaella De Vita, Enzo Maolucci and Tito Schipa Junior. he embarked on a career as a soloist and released his first album, "Aria Mediterranea", and over time more record productions followed, sometimes with "historic" guests such as Silvana Aliotta and Beppe Crovella. At the same time he created the Glad Tree trio.
Both on record and live, his music becomes mainly centered on the acoustic guitar, where he specializes in a highly original approach. Where the history of the guitar has branched out, manifesting itself through the most varied stylistic approaches, from the harmonic arabesques of arpeggios to the intricate fluidity of fingerpicking, from the percussive virtuosity of "tapping", to the experimentalisms of "scrapping" and beyond, à la Fred Frith, Marcello he has found his own attitude to his "guitar" music; giving life to his original stylistic approach.
Marcello's style can be defined as "intense harmonic/rhythmic melodic". While including moments of consolidated technique, the highlight of his music is his way of "compacting" harmony and rhythm, with a melodic sense "in mind", in a vortex of intensity that characterizes most of his songs.
There is a rock energy mixed with a flamenco passion that makes it immediately recognisable.
The new album "Voyage" is an album that enhances the "Marcello Capra style" and is dedicated by him to the 4 guitars that accompanied him and continue to accompany him in his artistic life and sees, together with his Ovation and Gray Owl, the happy return of the "electric" Telecasters and Les Pauls.
The inclusion of electric guitars in the style adds a significant note of color. Special guests, Davide Dal Pozzolo on soprano sax and Beppe Crovella on Hammond, Minimoog and Mellotron.
the CD “Voyage” finds Marcello at his best as a performer and composer.
