The city of Nice has jazz in its DNA! It was in Nice that, in February 1948, the first jazz festival in the world took place. For the 70th anniversary of the Nice Jazz Festival, it was obvious for her to join the International Jazz Day on April 30 at the Francis Gag Theater.

The city of Nice and the Nice Jazz Festival wanted to highlight two groups from the Riviera to celebrate the release of their album live, Manu Carré Electric 5 «Labyrinthe» and the voice of Yaël Angel presenting «Bop Write.»

France Jazzaudehore : Men in Bop

Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (saxophones ténor), Philippe Petit (orgue Hammond) & Yves Nahon (batterie)

Quoi de plus beau qu’un son de saxophone ténor ? Deux sons de saxophones ténors (!) qui dialoguent, s’interpellent en joutes amicales ou sonnent en chœur… et cette formule a inspiré de nombreux grands saxophonistes au cours de l’histoire du jazz.
L’esthétique de Men In Bop est bien ancrée dans la tradition du jazz des années 50/60, un jazz qui privilégie le « groove » et une virtuosité

###

Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (tenor saxophones), Philippe Petit (Hammond organ) & Yves Nahon (drums)

What is more beautiful than the sound of a tenor saxophone? Two tenor saxophones (!) which converse, challenge each other to friendly jousts or play in chorus…this formula has inspired numerous great saxophonists over the course of jazz history.
The aesthetic of «Men in Bop» is anchored in the jazz tradition of the 50’s and 60’s—jazz that favors the virtuosity and «the groove.»

Barabás Lőrinc Quartet

A Barabás Lőrinc Quartet pop-os jazz világa izgalmas instrumentális zene, elektronikus fűszerezéssel. Groove-os ritmusok, lüktető basszusfutamok, a szintetizátor és a trombita megannyi hangszíne a 70-es évek improvizatív jazzrock stílusjegyeivel átitatott sajátos zenei irányt teremt.

Herr Attila – basszusgitár
Nagy Zsolt– dob

Storia della prima espressione artistica di jazz: la voce, dalle origini ai giorni nostri. La voce è stata la prima espressione del Jazz.

Daniela Panetta ci condurrà attraverso la storia e gli stili della voce nel Jazz, accompagnata dai musicisti Sandro Di Pisa, Roberto Gelli e Valerio Luraghi docenti della Civica Scuola di Musica

Italy International Jazz Day 2018 — Palermo — Auditorium RAI — Musica e Teatro

Giornata internazionale Jazz 2018
Il Circolo delle Quinte
Il Linguaggio Universale del Jazz

29 Aprile Auditorium RAI Palermo – ore 18.00

Gli artisti narrano il proprio vissuto e la propria personalità attraverso forme artistiche e culturali come:
Teatro, utilizzando combinazioni variabili di parola, suono, gestualità, musica, danza e vocalità;
Musica, con l’improvvisazione e la sorpresa, elementi senza i quali nessun concetto melodico-armonico potrebbe essere definito Jazz;
Yoga, l’ascolto e il contatto profondo con la nostra essenza. L’espressione esteriore del sentire interiore. La trasmissione di qualcosa di autentico che rivela la nostra vera natura.
La concretizzazione di un’esperienza in cui si vuole condividere con il pubblico la libertà dello spirito e del pensiero, alla ricerca della propria vera natura; un ritorno a quello che siamo sempre stati.

Introduzione:
da Colombo a New Orleans

La Swing Era in Italia
La Poesia Jazz (Jazz Poetry)
Il Jazz e il Cinema
Il Linguaggio Universale del Jazz
Il Jazz è Gioia di Vivere, non può essere Insegnato
Il Jazz e il Respiro dello Yoga

«Not Black and White: Lost Recordings … In Gratitude to Louis Armstrong» is a jazz-musical, written and performed by Clyde R. Forsberg Jr., now a professor of history and cultural studies at the American University of Central Asia (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan). The play was first performed in Canada. His personal story of growing up in an abusive, patriarchal, racist home underscores the idea of jazz as deliverance. The Central Asian production will add to this ethno-jazz and transnational elements.
