His grandfather was an opera singer at
the Scala de Milano whereas his father, Gerard Badini,
is a well known sax player and conductor thanks to his work
with Duke Ellington, Stan Getz, Dee Dee Bridgewater, among
others. As a teenager, Jerome discovered Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky, Miles Davis and James Brown. He has composed music for advertising (Nescafé, Kellogg’s, Canadian Airlines...) and TV series. Then, house music from Chicago invaded Paris...
Fueled on Maceo
Parker and Bennie
Maupin, Jerome Badini created his own style:
electro-sax! A powerhouse sound, terse and hypnotic, the
sax is a trance-maker in his hands. He's
been acclaimed performing live with dj-producers Little
Louie Vega (in New York), Derrick
May (in Ibiza) and DJ
Sneak (in Paris).
In 2001, through Dimitri
From Paris, Jerome met with Alexkid.
Together, they composed the ballad Trindade for Trip Do Brasil (Sony). In 2002, with David
Duriez, he recorded the famous Get
On Down (2020 Vision).
In 2004, he has composed and produced 'Round The Clock (Super Bad Trax), a 12 track journey. This album takes us to the enchanted world of Super
Bad, the tenor sax adventurer, who guides us through a day of musical reverie and conquest, all throbbing with that energy many claim, but few possess: swing!
