CASA DEL JAZZ
9 pm – Viale di Porta Ardeatina, 55
Federica Michisanti: double bass. Francesco Bigoni: tenor sax, clarin. Francesco Lento: trumpet.
The young Federica Michisanti is one of the musicians making a name for themselves in the Italian jazz scene as double-bass players, composers and leaders of their own groups and projects. A real wave that is redefining the profile of this music. The Horn Trio is joined by Francesco Bigoni on saxophone and Francesco Lento on trumpet and flugelhorn, in a chamber jazz where the pleasure of writing is combined with drifts towards improvisation. The album, Silent Rides, released at the end of 2018, contains only original compositions, for which she won the Best New Italian Talent award in the annual Jazz Music magazine critics’ poll.
