Edgardo 'Dado' Moroni was born in Genoa (Italy) in 1962. His father sang in dance bands and his grandfather was an opera singer, so the music bug was passed on to him at a very early age already.
As a teenager he discovered jazz by listening to his father`s records, which included Erroll Garner, Earl 'Fatha' Hines, Art Tatum and Fats Waller.
His fame grew in the '70s and '80s and he started working with the likes of Franco Ambrosetti and Gianni Basso, and Americans such as Freddie Hubbard, James Moody and Clark Terry. He played with the Jimmy Woode Trio for quite some time, as well as with the Mingus Dynasty band. He is also sideman on albums by Ray Brown, Tom Harrell, Lee Konitz, to name but a few.
In Belgium he is mainly known for playing in the Bert Joris Quartet.
