Date of last update: 11/10/2018, 10:32

The Jazz Road this year has reached its 8th edition, among the many Italian festivals it has a unique feature, namely the laying of the marble stars at the centrally located Via Orefici, dedicated to the great American performers who played in the city during the golden years of Bologna's Jazz Festival. This year's star is dedicated to Charles Mingus. La Strada del Jazz (The Jazz Street) is above all a social event and being in the street, listening to jazz music, provides a moment of freedom, an occasion for getting together, socialising, participating in Bologna’s social and cultural life, where great musicians and small jazz bands, with their "swing", make it possible to enjoy a great intergenerational and intercultural combination. During these three jazz days, Friday the 14th (jazz cellars), Saturday the 15th and Sunday the 16th of September, we would like to point out two great free events in Via Rizzoli (underneath the Two Toweres (Due Torri)): Saturday,  15th September at 9:30pm, Tullio De Piscopo and Friends "from Jazz to Blues with... slow progression" with Fabrizio Bernasconi on piano, Luigi Di Nunzio on sax, Cesare Pizzetti on the double bass and the electric bass, Gianluca Silvestri on electric guitar, and Peppe Burrafato on percussion instruments. Sunday, 16th September at 5:00pm, as always in Via Rizzoli, "Enrico Rava (on trumpet) Meets Mattia Cigalini (on sax)", with Andrea Pozza on piano, Riccardo Fioravanti on double bass, Stefano Bagnoli drums.
