VERONICA SWIFT & EMMET COHEN TRIO – Date 2021

Veronica Swift is a young singer on the rise in the crowded and competitive scenario of jazz vocality. She made her debut at Umbria Jazz in 2010 in a cosy and exclusive  club setting and now attains the much more demanding stage of the Arena Santa Giuliana, opening with her trio (Emmet Cohen Trio) for Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra where he had made his debut at the age of eleven in the Women in Jazz series. Swift finished second in the 2015 Thelonious Monk Competition, the year in which Jazzmeia Horn won. In just a few years she has become one of the most popular jazz voices in New York. What strikes one about her is her youthfulness, sense of swing, elegance and ability to “interpret" her song. Swift was a guest on Benny Green's latest album, Then and Now(Sunnyside) and a few months ago released Confessions for Mack Avenue Records in her name.

WYNTON MARSALIS & JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER ORCHESTRA

Jazz at Lincoln Center is one of the most prestigious American cultural institutions. Its mission is to promote jazz at all levels and with a variety of initiatives, from concerts to seminars, from conferences to radio and television programmes. With this vision: “We believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression ". The project took shape in the mid-eighties, and Wynton Marsalis was among the promoters and is now the Artistic Director. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is the main instrument and the heart of this vocation with thirty years of work behind it, a staff of fifteen among the most brilliant American jazzmen and a repertoire which, over the years, has celebrated some of the key figures of twentieth century music, from Duke Ellington to Charles Mingus, from John Coltrane to John Lewis. The Orchestra's record production is intense and, among the various releases, it should be remembered that Blood on the Fields, a jazz oratorio composed by the New Orleans trumpeter, won the Pulitzer Prize for music. Wynton's return to Umbria Jazz, where he has been present from the first steps of his extraordinary career, is always an event, especially with an absolutely out of the ordinary formation like the JALCO.
