Boris Savoldelli is a new vocal performer on the music scene who is receiving kudos from around the world. He is always challenging his “vocal instrument” with new and original ways of singing, thanks to his music background that ranges from classical studies to jazz to rock-funk to avant-garde experimental music. His influences include his mentor in jazz, singer Mark Murphy.
In 2008 Boris released his most representative album titled INSANOLOGY, an experimental vocal solo project, composed, largely arranged and recorded using only a looper machine. This CD represent Boris’ “light side”, the melodic and more accessible part of Boris’ music. “Insanology” received flattering reviews from all around the world (Italy, USA, Brazil, France, UK, Holland, Russia, Germany, Israel).
In 2008, critic and producer Arnaldo DeSouteiro (Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin and Joao Gilberto) put “Insanology” on his list of “Ten Best Vocal Jazz Albums of the Year.” He also put Boris in third place in the category of “Best Male Jazz Singers” after Tony Bennet and Al Jarreau. A year later, in 2009, Boris placed second on DeSouteiro’s same list. In 2011 Boris placed fourth again in the category of “Best Male Jazz Singers” on DeSouteiro’s poll and Boris' 2011 cd, "Biocosmopolitan", on his list of “Ten Best Vocal Jazz Albums of the Year 2011.”
In June 2009, the New York-based Moonjune Records released Boris’ duo CD with Elliott Sharp, PROTOPLASMIC, an example of Boris “dark” and experimental side.
In April 2010, his first official video titled “The Miss Kiss” debuted.
