From October 4th to November 15th the jazz music festival will take place in Spoleto. Three events to show the public the great artists who have marked the history of the genre, together with some of the most vital and original talents of contemporary production.

Fabrizio Bosso & Javier Girotto, Nick The Nightfly and the Dock In Absolute will be the protagonists of Spoleto Jazz Season, a musical event included in the program of "Spoleto d'Estate...e non solo", scheduled from October 4th to November 15th in the splendid setting of Teatro Nuovo and the Caio Melisso-Spazio Carla Fendi Theater in Spoleto.

Nick The Nightfly will open the festival on Friday 4 October (9h00 pm), on stage at the Teatro Caio Melisso  with Be YourSelf. An intense musical journey that tells the artistic and personal story of the Scottish artist who has lived in Italy since 1982. An occasion for the public to experience different styles and atmospheres through jazz and soul, pop and lounge. A work rich in the influences of evocative places, meetings with great artists and sounds that accompany the historic voice of Radio Monte Carlo since the beginning of its Radio program "Monte Carlo Nights".

To animate the event on Friday 18 October (9h00 pm), the Dock In Absolute, an extraordinary Belgian-Luxembourg trio composed by Jean-Philippe Koch on piano, David Kintziger on bass and Michel Mootz on percussion. In 2012, these three young musicians combined their respective styles such as progressive jazz, classical and rock, for the shared love of jazz, playing compositions written by the pianist and creating a completely personal identity. Here is the proof that Jazz has a myriad of stories to tell. At the Teatro Caio Melisso they will present Unlikely, their second album produced by CamJazz.

Gran finale venerdì 15 novembre (ore 21.00) con una formazione capeggiata da due mostri sacri del panorama jazzistico contemporaneo, Fabrizio Bosso & Javier Girotto che al Teatro Nuovo si esibiranno in formazione “Latin mood”. Un sestetto che rappresenta una sintesi sonora completa capace di mescolare abilmente linguaggi sonori differenti. Il frutto di questa collaborazione è una musica coinvolgente da cui si viene presto contagiati e di cui è facile innamorarsi.
