UMBRIA JAZZ PERUGIA, FROM THE 9TH TO THE 18TH OF JULY
Since 1973 the Italian summer in Umbria goes with the rhythm of Umbria Jazz. This relatively small region, at the heart of Italy, is hosting one of the greatest Jazz events in Italy. 10 days of concerts; 9 different stages (including the ones at the main Arena, the theatres, squares and restaurants); more than 220 great music events, most of which free. During these days saxophones, trumpets, guitars spread their sounds along the streets of Perugia.
The eclectic line of Umbria Jazz Festival wants to tell the spectators at what extent music can be different and that all types of good music deserve attention. Following this motto, Umbria Jazz stages host the main Jazz players (Pat Metheny, Keith Jarrett, BB King … to mention a few of them), but also pop music groups famous all over the world, such as the REM that played last past years.
Mark Knopfler, Mario Biondi, the Incognito, Pat Metheny group, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Manhattan Transfer, Randy Crawford, Joe Sample, Tony Bennet and Sonny Rollins are just an example of the great artists that will make 2010’s edition as success full as the 37 previous ones.
