On the occasion of Halloween, JAZZMI warms up its audience with a special night. An evening of extraordinary live performances, talks and a dj set to dance with late into the night.
– 7.30 pm: Francesco Cavestri Trio (live) – 9 pm: Don Karate (live) – 10.30 pm: Sun Ra Arkestra (live) – 12 am: Populous (dj set)
Alongside Riccardo Oliva and Joe Allotta, Francesco Cavestri will present his debut album Early 17. The repertoire of the concert will move on different musical atmospheres: from the presentation of some original songs by Francesco Cavestri to others belonging to the hip-hop, new-soul and jazz scene of the last years, to reinterpretations and tributes to giants such as John Coltrane or Robert Glasper, in a continuous search for innovation and avant-garde sound.
Don Karate is a strange project, a kind of (in)expected detour. Because Don Karate is the solo-ever-less-solo project of Stefano Tamborrino, a Florentine, one of the most sought-after and appreciated jazz drummers around, not only in Italy. And together with Tamborrino two huge personalities of the European jazz scene: Pasquale Mirra on vibraphone and Francesco Ponticelli on bass. Three masters of improvisation who synthesize their union in a hythmic, harmonic and emotional experience.
Sun Ra was one of the most important and controversial figures in modern jazz. A self-proclaimed extraterrestrial from Saturn, Sun Ra was a poet, a philosopher, but above all the founder of the Sun Ra Arkestra in the 1950s, an “intergalactic orchestra” of more than thirty musicians. After the death of its legendary founder, the Arkestra passed to the artistic direction of Marshall Allen in 1995. Under his leadership, the Arkestra continued to put on eclectic performances that offered a powerful mix of music, poetry, theater and dance.
Populous, aka Andrea Mangia, is a dj and producer from Lecce, Italy. His debut album was released in 2003 and was titled Quipo, followed by 2005’s Queue For Love, two albums influenced equally by instrumental hip hop and indietronica. A global approach to the creative process has recently led him to focus on new Latin American rhythms, filtering them through a European lens. With Night Safari (2013) and Azulejos (2016), he earned a place on the international electronic music map. 2019 is the year of her most mature album, W, an ode to femininity in all its facets.
