France Wonderful Gershwin

George Gershwin is one of the very few 20th century composers to be as well known and admired in the world of classical music as in the world of jazz when countless performers have appropriated his works

It is in this repertoire of songs with extremely varied melodies that Mathilde Ferry and Fabien Ruiz decided to draw together to write a musical show, a joyful and elegant homage to this “wonderful” composer!

But beyond the music, “WONDERFUL GERSHWIN” also tells through words, the blazing life of this genius who died prematurely – at the age of 38 – leaving behind a colossal work and an inimitable style !

“With 2 fantastic albums and 2 brilliantly successful gigs at London’s legendary 606 Club behind her, NIKI VÖRÖS is a true jazz singer, the real thing, who is capable of turning any tune into high quality jazz. She can always be trusted to dream up a refreshingly unusual repertoire. On her first album she sang highly original and fresh jazz interpretations of songs by the late Michel Legrand. Her second album is dedicated to the songs of the African-American singer-songwriter-actress and civil rights activist, Abbey Lincoln. Like Abbey Lincoln, Niki is relentlessly honest and when she projects passion, pain, humour or irony it all comes from the heart.” – Peter Pallai

Italy Jack Grelle & Don Diego Trio

“Non impari molto a stare sempre nello stesso posto”
Il cantautore Jack Grelle questo motto lo ha incarnato sia nel suo approccio alla vita che nella musica.
Per anni Grelle ha viaggiato di straforo sui treni e ha fatto l’autostop attraverso gli Stati Uniti, immerso in storie e scrivendo canzoni basate sulle persone che ha incontrato durante i suoi viaggi.
Il suo spirito selvaggio e stradaiolo ha influenzato la sua musica che combina elementi di tradizione country, folk e rock’n roll. “Volevo essere un moderno ma tradizionale troubadour”.


“You don’t learn much to always stay in the same place”
The singer-songwriter Jack Grelle embodied this motto both in his approach to life and in music.
For years Grelle has traveled extensively on trains and hitchhiked across the United States, steeped in stories and writing songs based on the people she met on her travels.
His wild and street spirit has influenced his music which combines elements of country, folk and rock’n roll tradition. “I wanted to be a modern but traditional troubadour.”

Sono state individuate 4 fasi storiche e stilistiche e 6 musicisti per i quali dei focus monografici saranno di aiuto nella comprensione dell’evoluzione del linguaggio, utilizzando materiale audiovisivo e numerose slide sintetiche di facile lettura.
Destinatari sono i ragazzi delle scuole secondarie, nonché tutti coloro che hanno interesse ad approfondire la conoscenza della storia del jazz, dal neofita (che reperirà anche informazioni utili per una discografia di base) fino all’ascoltatore appassionato.

“On the bare rocks and the glaciers” is the Francesco Chiapperini new project inspired by the popular music dedicated to alpine and war. The title of the work is taken from an Alpine Prayer.
Its peculiarity lies in the choice to play with a wind-only formation (with the exception of the presence of a violin).
The sextet ranges between original songs, reworkings and repertoires that make the mountain the protagonist of the notes.
Its music wants to recreate the organic nature of a choir, that of the Alpine ones.

a virtual hug to the whole world.

It is a somewhat particular arrangement of a great jazz standard: a vocal arrangement, in polyphonic-style, performed by my friends together with my saxophone.

Together with the Dutch Jazz pianist Karel Boehlee, with whom she has been actively collaborating for these last 10 years, they reimagine these songs and revive fado’s sorrowful sound through hauntingly serenades, jaunty jazz meditations and crisp melismatic scatting.

Wanja Slavin: alto sax,Ronny Graupe: guitar,Jonas Westergaard: bass,Christian Lillinger: drums
Wir feiern diesen Tag mit einem innovativen Quartett, das den Geist unserer Zeit atmet und mit viel Inspiration einen von allen denkbaren Musikstilen belebten Sound kreiert. Spoom wurde 2005 als Trio gegründet; seit 2018 wurde dieses durch den Einbezug des Altosaxophons zum Quartett, welches nun die Freiräume und Möglichkeiten der Kompositionen des Bandleaders in den verschiedensten Spielarten virtuos auslotet. Wesentliches Element ist dabei die Improvisation, die das Terrain ausserhalb der komponierten Form erforscht und umsetzt.


Wanja Slavin: alto sax, Ronny Graupe: guitar, Jonas Westergaard: bass, Christian Lillinger: drums
We celebrate this day with an innovative quartet that breathes the spirit of our time and creates a sound that is alive with all conceivable music styles. Spoom was founded in 2005 as a trio; Since 2018, this has become a quartet through the inclusion of the alto saxophone, which now virtually explores the freedom and possibilities of the band leader’s compositions in a wide variety of variations. An essential element is improvisation, which explores and implements the terrain outside of the composed form.

For this International Jazz Day Special, Turner Sims is delighted to welcome London pianist Ashley Henry with his trio. One of a new generation of musicians that have been raised with a wide range of influences, Ashley is clearly influenced by hip-hop but has his roots firmly in jazz. Following the success of the 26-year-old’s Easter EP, the genre-blurring pianist heads to Turner Sims with music from his debut album Beautiful Vinyl Hunter.

‘My music is a straight-up reflection of who I am; London in all its mixed-up glory. The immigrant in me has musical roots traced back to the 1940’s, so it’s important my music reflects that jazz narrative across different genres and generations.’ Ashley Henry

‘It’s just incredible.’ Gilles Peterson

Mixed Media Collage
Using bits and scrapes of paper and mixed media collage techniques, I have created a collection of visual representations illustrating memories and emotions of my love affair with jazz music. My method involves using pieces of ripped or cut recycled paper from printed material I have saved over the years, and reassemble and glue the pieces back together again in an entirely new way. I draw many of my inspirations from my collection of saved printed material including jazz journals, concert programs, conferences schedules, and a multitude of other mementos from my travels, projects, performances and of course, the musicians and the music.
