Due Laghi Jazz Festival e Piemonte Jazz

The Due Laghi (Two Lakes) Jazz Festival, held between Morainic hills, lakes and castles and in the shadow of the Sacra di San Michele, is back. The event, now in its XXIV edition, involves this year, alongside the City of Avigliana, the municipalities of Almese and Condove as well.

The Due Laghi Jazz Festival presents, during an intense week of music, an exceptional program that, among the prominent events in Piazza Conte Rosso, sees the return to the stage of the Turin Jazz Orchestra, with the vocalist Denise King, in a passionate tribute to Ella Fitzgerald (on the 100th anniversary of her birth), preceded by the jazz-style tribute to Italian and Neapolitan song by the quintet led by the New York baritone sax player Gary Smulyan and the tenor sax player Fulvio Albano; the program is completed by a deeply involving “first” for Avigliana: Deborah J. Carter, with “Daytripper”, a concert entirely dedicated to the Beatles, reinterpreted in a jazz style. Worth mentioning, among this edition’s novelties, are “Italian Jazz Movies”, an Italian jazz film fest, and “Summer Lindy Stories”, promoted by Consorzio Piemonte Jazz and by Jazz Club Torino, which, through its usual dance events, has infected thousands of fans with enthusiasm, drawing them close to ballroom swing.

Musical appetisers and jam sessions at night fire up the jazz nights of the Valley.
