Jazz al Piccolo. Orchestra senza Confini – Il Jazz è donna

A presentation of the most interesting jazz scenes in Italy, a tribute to past and present greats, small groups and big bands. The return of the great Jazz al Piccolo with the Orchestra senza Confini review, now in its 22nd edition. There are four concerts programmed between January and April 2020.
After the Tribute to Count Basie, a concert that examines the important history of big band jazz with classics ranging from the 1930s to the 1970s, the second appointment is the evening Il jazz è donna, a precious opportunity to present contemporary music through “the other half of sound”, now an important entity on the national scene non only in terms of quality, but also in numbers.
The review continues on 30 March, again at the Teatro Strehler, with Tentets, a tribute to two great Swiss jazz musicians, the trumpet player Franco Ambrosetti and the pianist and arranger George Gruntz.
Lastly, on 20 April at the Teatro Studio Melato, Il mondo musicale di Giovanni Tommaso, a concert dedicated to a musician who has more than half a century of jazz behind him and who has a history of important musical achievements.

Il Jazz è donna
For the third year running, Orchestra senza Confini proposes an evening of female jazz, a precious opportunity to present contemporary music through “the other half of sound”, now an important entity on the national scene non only in terms of quality, but also in numbers. 
Each musician will bring a piece arranged for big band, and will perform it as a soloist together with the Civica Jazz Band conducted by Enrico Intra, forming an extremely varied repertoire coloured with the personalities of the guest jazz artists.
From the funky-blues of Caterina Crucitti, an important electric bass player from the Italian scene, to the elegant mainstream music of the seventeen-year-old Camilla Rolando, a young and talented trombone player, to the articulated and very modern music of the baritone Helga Plankensteiner and the enrapturing communicability of the piano and the voice of Laura Fedele, from the virtuoso guitar playing of Eleonora Strino to the modalism of Aisha Ruggeri, the concert offers a panorama that varies greatly in style and is therefore very stimulating for the audience.
