JULIAN LAGE TRIO

If you want to better understand what is happening to the guitar in the last decade, you have to keep an eye on Julian Lage. In the three-year period 2017-2019, Lage earned three Grammy Award nominations in a row, that add up to the two previous ones. The Californian guitarist is in the spotlight, both among the music experts and the general public. “Squint”, the new album recorded in Nashville (Blue Note Records), is coming out. Lage has already recorded for this record label with Nels Cline and Charles Lloyd, but this is his debut as a leader. The record was preceded by a series of six evenings at the Village Vanguard in January last year.

ENRICO RAVA – FRED HERSCH

There is no need to remind people how Rava influenced the development of Italian and European jazz, especially the audience of Umbria Jazz who has listened to him several times and in different settings. An eighteen-time Grammy Award nominee (fifteen as pianist, composer and leader, and three for the trio), Fred Hersch won Jazz Pianist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association in 2016 and 2018. There are very few jazz musicians who are equally charismatic, and not only in the jazz world. And deservedly. Fred Hersch seems indifferent to genres. The music he plays is not inspired by any particular pianist who preceded him, while his influence has been felt on many others, such as Brad Mehldau or Ethan Iverson, his former students.

“Al gir dal bughi” DINO PIANA, ENRICO RAVA, FRANCO PIANA DADO MORONI, GABRIELE EVANGELISTA, ROBERTO GATTO

“Al gir dal bughi” (the boogie-woogie chord progression) is the title of the latest album by Turin-based trumpeter, bandleader, and composer Dino Piana, born in 1930. It was recorded at Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome in December 2019 and released a couple of months ago. The album line-up is the same as that of the concert: Dino Piana, trombone; Enrico Rava, trumpet and flugelhorn; Franco Piana, flugelhorn; Gabriele Evangelista, double bass; Roberto Gatto, drums. Dado Moroni plays the piano instead of Julian Oliver Mazzariello. Enrico Rava, the promoter of this project with Franco Piana, Dino’s son, states: “He is one of the most important Italian jazzmen, one of the most loved and desired musicians in Europe, one of the fathers of modern jazz in Italy and an inspiration for all young trombonists”.
