Varie Sedi
Provincia di Bolzano
29.06--08.07.2018

Da alcuni anni il sottotitolo di questo festival potrebbe essere “Young European Jazz Festival," visto che il suo curatore Klaus Widmann evita accuratamente di invitare gruppi americani o nomi europei già troppo noti. Il suo obiettivo è invece quello di sondare le giovani tendenze ...

440 Keys: A Batch of Piano Delights

Read "440 Keys: A Batch of Piano Delights" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Olavi Trio: Oh, la vie!

Read "Oh, la vie!" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Trio finnico dalle geometrie ben oliate, oltre che alquanto originali, Olavi gioca molto sulla parola (scritta), oltre che sulla musica (ovviamente suonata), come appare evidente dal titolo di questo suo secondo lavoro, mentre un altro elemento che colpisce è il fatto che il trio riunisca musicisti appartenenti a tre diverse generazioni, separati quasi esattamente da vent'anni ...
