Special Event al Lazzaretto

Paolo Fresu Quintet con Tino Tracanna

19 giugno 2018
CDpM Europe Big Band e JW Orchestra

Two special evenings to continue the celebrations for the 40th edition of the Bergamo Jazz Festival: following the usual programme for March, which was widely acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, the Fondazione Teatro Donizetti presents two exceptional events at the Lazzaretto at 21:30 on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 June.

Starring in the first of these will be one of the four “directors” who enlivened the final evening of the Bergamo Jazz Festival so successfully: Paolo Fresu. The Sardinian trumpeter, who was Artistic Director of Bergamo Jazz from 2009 to 2011, will appear on this occasion heading his usual quintet, including Bergamo-born saxophonist Tino Tracanna and pianist Roberto Cipelli, with Attilio Zanchi on double bass and Ettore Fioravanti on drums.

The following evenings the spotlights will turn on two bands that represent different generations of jazz in the Bergamo area, and which bring together musicians with long experience and young talent: CDpM Europe Big Band, straight from the school of the same name and here to reinterpret some well-known jazz classics, and JW Orchestra, an established group who will present their project Africa Jazz Travelling.
