Umbria Jazz presents the new Jazz Club 2019/2020 season


An important edition of Jazz Club Perugia will be starting on November 8: the season gets off to a flying start among the events organised by the Fondazione Umbria Jazz, together with Umbria Jazz, Umbria Jazz Spring and Umbria Jazz Winter.

A long musical season begins which, from November to July, will present three festivals and a season with eight concerts, without interruption, offering fans a rich, heterogeneous programme.

The concert venue, this year as well, will be the Hotel Sina Brufani, with the exception of the December 23 event at the Teatro Morlacchi.

The season starts, as mentioned, on November 8 with a state-of-the-art duo: Enrico Rava and Danilo Rea, while December 9 will be the turn of Paolo Fresu and Daniele Di Bonaventura, a project certainly not less so.

These two “Made in Italy” projects will be interposed on November 22 by the trio of Charlie Hunter which the UJ public has had the opportunity to enjoy in past editions of the festival.

A special event on December 23 for both location and music: the occasion for wishing a Merry Christmas to the town with the gospel music of the Every Praise & Virginia Union Gospel Choir at the Teatro Morlacchi.

2020 will again see Italian jazz as protagonist: on January 7 with the Rosario Bonaccorso quartet, special guest Fabrizio Bosso, on February 14 the Nico Gori quartet for the occasion to celebrate an outside-the-box Valentine’s Day.

Finally, on March 20, a super band composed of Vincent Herring, Piero Odorici, Dave Kikoski, Aldo Zunino and Hank Allen-Barfield, together to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Charlie Parker.

On April 30, the International Jazz Day celebrations will see the new quartet of saxophonist Melissa Aldana, also a guest of UJ in the past.

All concerts at the Sina Brufani will be preceded by a food and wine buffet.

Tickets and passes will be available the same evening of each concert starting at 7.30 pm.
