Massimo Moriconii Duet con Emilia Zamuner

"DUET" EMILIA ZAMUNER & MASSIMO MORICONI "MODALITA' TRIO" NICO GORI, MASSIMO MORICONI, ELLADE BANDINI Two different formulas with the common denominator of Massimo Moriconi, a figure of great tradition in Italian jazz. Moriconi is a maestro of double bass, well-known to the Umbria Jazz public for having seen him in many editions in duo with Renato Sellani, but we must at least remember his long artistic partnership with Mina. In the "ModalitàTrio", Nico Gori and Ellade Bandini perform with him. If we consider the clarinet, it is unlikely that the first name that comes to mind is not that of Nico Gori. This Florentine musician has expressed himself at the highest levels in the most varied situations - big bands, symphony orchestras and jazz groups - both as leader and as a much sought-after sideman, ranging from classical music to jazz, from funky to acid jazz. He has collaborated and collaborates with musicians such as Tom Harrell, Lee Konitz, Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani. In his first album as leader, "Groovin' High" (2003), with him were Ellade Bandini and Massimo Moriconi. Bandini is an experienced, long-standing musician who has passed through the chronicles of jazz and songwriting for decades. Bandini has been a memorable collaborator of Guccini, Vecchioni, Mina, Edoardo Bennato, Fabrizio de André. In "Duet" Moriconi performs with the vocalist Emilia Zamuner, proclaimed best young talent at the Premio Vitavita and winner of the contest named after Massimo Urbani. More than a promise, therefore, an established musician who thus explains her relationship with jazz song: "it fully expresses my way of being". The formula of the vocals-double bass duo is not very common and promises an intriguing atmosphere of sound.

The New Orleans Mystics

The New Orleans Mystics define themselves as a versatile vocal group that has in their repertoire a variety of classic R&B, soul, disco, jazz, Motown, covering a period ranging from the '40s to today. Supported by their accompanying band, they put their own brand on each song and make it personal. Entertainment is the main vocation of the Mystics, together with the flexibility and the professionalism that allows them to master any kind of show. Formed in the seventies by two brothers and other friends, the band established itself in various school talent shows and soon became popular by singing the hits of the Temptations, Dramatics, Chi-Lites and other artists who were popular at that time. Over the years the band has changed formation but has always remained faithful to the musical identity with which it made its debut forty years ago.

Mitch Woods & His Rocket 88’s

In America he is considered one of the best modern performers of traditional genres such as blues, rock & roll, boogie, jive. His latest album recorded last year at the New Orleans festival earned him a nomination for the 2019 Blues Blast Awards for Best Live Disc. Woods gained another nomination at the Living Blues Awards as a pianist. Mitch Woods is a New Yorker who started playing classical music at age eleven, then moving on to blues and derivatives. Singer with a hot voice and pianist of sparkling technique with a spectacular view of music, Mitch Woods returns to Umbria Jazz at the head of his historic band, the Rocket 88's, which was founded back in 1980. The band was first active in the clubs of northern California to soon become a successful brand at federal level. Among Mitch's reference models are great personalities of American musical history: Fats Domino (to whom his last CD is dedicated), pioneers of piano boogie like Meade Lux Lewis, the great pianists of New Orleans such as Professor Longhair and Louis Jordan, the nexus between swing and rock & roll. According to Keyboard Magazine, “Woods lays down an authentic 50s-vintage rock piano groove, comparable in power and rhythmic nuance to classic recordings by the young Jerry Lee Lewis”.
