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.
I love jazz because it is simply a music of my heart since I was about 12 years old.
I was first exposed to jazz when I heard Sonny Boy Williamson play harmonica. My introduction to jazz went through blues music.
