Marco Eneidi

Marco Eneidi was born on November 1st, 1956 in Portland, Oregon and passed away on May 24th, 2016 in Pleasanton, California.

Marco graduated with a B.A. from Sonoma State and an M.A. in Composition from Mills College.

He began his music career from a very young age beginning with the clarinet, then the saxophone, and on to many other instruments. Marco eventually made his way to New York City where he performed and recorded with many of the great jazz musicians of the era and later started Botticelli Records in 1987. In the mid-90's he moved back to the West Coast and formed the American Jungle Orchestra, a big-band ranging in size from 15-40 musicians at any given time along with going on cross country tours with smaller groups. During the 2000's he lived in Vienna, Austria for many years with a long running weekly improv session at Celeste as the Artistic Director of The Neu New York/Vienna Institute of Improvised Music and toured all across Western and Eastern Europe performing at many concerts and festivals including Konfrontationen and the Venice Biennale. He most recently lived in Cuernavaca, Mexico for the last few years performing with a trio called the Cosmic Brujo's and had upcoming shows scheduled in Mexico, SF, NYC and Europe through the Fall.

He is survived by his mother Margaret of Livermore, sister Andrea (Mitch Shandley) of San Rafael, girlfriend Daniela of Austria, son Nicco of Oakland and granddaughter Yzobella of Vermont.

There will be a memorial service held at his childhood home in Livermore on Sunday, June 26th, at 2 PM where sharing of memories and stories will be encouraged and appreciated. His ashes will be spread across the country in memory of his love of travel and nomadic lifestyle.
