  • Umbria Jazz 2017 – Raffaele Casarano, Gaetano Curreri, Giuliano Sangiorgi, Gino Paoli, Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke
    Non poteva che essere affidata alle note virtuose e delicate di Danilo Rea l’apertura del concerto di omaggio a Luigi Tenco sul palco di Umbria Jazz. Un lungo viaggio, con un alternarsi di voci con timbri e grane a volte pastosi, intensi, struggenti, per lasciare spazio a quelli più pop, ma sempre contraddistinti da un unico legame, solo apparentemente distante, tra il jazz e la musica d’autore.

    Judith Harris(July 28, 2015)
    Despite the graft and graffiti, and the New York Times dissing Rome, Italy continues to vaunt countless islands of excellence, where the landscape is unspoiled, the finest of foods are offered at fair prices, treasures of art are visible and newly restored, and music fills the air. In short, the best of the Italian cultural riches not only survive, but thrive.
  • Even though Jazz was born in New Orleans, the genre has been influenced by artists from all over the world, including Italy. Jazz in Italy has grown tremendously in the past twenty years, especially in the United States, with the support of more frequent performances by Italian jazz musicians, like those taking part in the Umbria Jazz Festival.
