The 11th annual Festival Trieste Loves Jazz ran for nearly a month between July 7 and August 13. Evening concerts took place at two locations: either in the town center of Verdi or at the Castle of San Giusto. One of the highlights included a performance by December Soultrio, a project by Slovenian drummer and percussionist Zlatko Kaucic, highly regarded in Europe in the field of avant-garde and improvised jazz. The trio also included pianist Stefano Battaglia and double bassist Salvatore Maiore.
The first jazz record I bought was a Verve compilation of 10 LPs! I saved for more than six months and gave it to myself as a
Christmas present. I was about 18 years old. Since then, my love for jazz has taken me to program the only jazz radio station in
Mexico City, Horizonte 107.9 FM.
