The Umbria Jazz House Band – “Dear Dexter” Quintet

For some editions now, Umbria Jazz has been resuming one of its historical traditions: the night-time jam sessions to round off a day of music. Any self-respecting jam session starts after midnight and goes on until people want to play. Its heart is the “house band”, a quintet that has already performed in Perugia and Orvieto. This is the resident band of Umbria Jazz, and all the other musicians can join. They are experienced jazzmen, among the top players of their instruments. This band can recreate live the fervent atmosphere beloved by night owls.

The tradition of the house band could not miss in this special edition. The title, “Dear Dexter”, is clearly dedicated to tenor sax and bebop icon Dexter Gordon.
