Five events in Venice from February to May 2019 to explore contemporary jazz, with new projects by Italian and international artists. It is the third edition of “Jazz &”, signed by Veneto Jazz and hosted at the Sale Apollinee of La Fenice Theater, with a stop at the Museum of Palazzo Grimani and a conclusion to the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi.
The review ends at the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi on Thursday 23 May (8.30 pm, free admission by reservation), with the Israeli trombonist Reut Regev, “an irresistible performer with a prodigious technique” with a “joyously free” approach that embraces every known aspect of the trombone “. His project, Reut Regev’s R * time, is the result of 15 years of musical collaboration with husband drummer and co-composer Igal Foni and combines sophisticated sound research with a kaleidoscope of sounds, rhythms and musical tastes. All About Jazz called it “amazing” and “incredibly expansive and shamelessly modern”. In Venice he presents himself in a trio.
The concerts scheduled will be opened by the exhibition of young talents of Italian jazz, the project “Tomorrow’s Jazz”. The artistic direction is curated by Giuseppe Mormile.
