Massimo Urbani in LevantoMassimo Urbani, sassofonista e compositore (1957-1993) è stato uno dei musicisti più importanti della storia del jazz italiano, per le sue straordinarie doti espressive e tecniche, considerato da molti come un genio della musica contemporanea.

Massimo Urbani takes his first steps in the Roman jazz scene playing at Fokstudio di Roma, nel quale viene introdotto grazie al sassofonista Mario Schiano e il contrabbassista Marcellus Melis. Tra il 1972 e il 1973 segue da esterno il corso di jazz tenuto da Giorgio Gaslini al Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia di Roma. Nello stesso periodo prende parte alle registrazione degli album “South” di Mario Schiano, “Message" and "Pop fairy tale di Giorgio Gaslini. Agli inizi degli anni Settanta, Urbani entra a far parte del trio di Enrico Rava, con il contrabbassista Calvin Hill e il batterista Nestor Astarita. Tra il 1977 e il 1979 il sassofonista romano è ancora con Enrico Rava, stavolta con le formazioni che accompagnano il trombettista nella tournée in Europa, rispettivamente il quintetto con Bobo Stenson, Palle Danielsson e Jon Christensen e il trio con Aldo Romano e J. F Jenny Clarke. A seguito di questa esperienza Urbani registra il suo primo disco da leader, “360° Aeutopia“, insieme al pianista Ron Burton, il contrabbassista Cameron Browne e il batterista Beaver Harris.

Negli anni Ottanta collabora con il pianista Enrico Pieranunzi, con cui condivide uno stretto legame di amicizia e stima. Partecipa ai dischi del pianista romano, “Isis” e “Autumn Song” (recorded live with the Space Jazz Trio on November 2, 1984 at the Berlin Philharmonie as part of the Berlin Jazz Festival).

Nello stesso periodo registra il disco “Dedication To A.A & J.C – Max’s Mood”, dedicato ai suoi idoli Albert Ayler e John Coltrane. Inoltre collabora col pianista Luke Flowers nel disco “Easy to Love”, col pianista Mike Melillo in “Duet Improvvisation for Yardbird”, omaggio a Charlie Parker, a cui Urbani è stato spesso accostato per il suo approccio al sax alto, e incide i dischi “Out of Nowhere" and "The Blessing“, in quartetto col pianista Danilo Rea, il contrabbassista Giovanni Tommaso e il batterista Roberto Gatto.
