Roma Jazz Festival 2016

Rome’s annual jazz festival returns to its dual venues, Auditorium Parco della Musica and Casa del Jazz, for its 40th edition. In the decades since its inception, the event has steadily elevated the genre – past headliners include musical icons like Miles Davis, Ray Charles, B.B. King, and Chick Corea. This year’s lineup is no exception, with an exciting roster of modern day jazz’s most prolific artists and prodigious newcomers. Joshua Redman and Brad Mehldau take the stage at the festival’s on 8 November. Redman, masterful on the sax, and Mehldau, a renowned pianist, team up for a one-night-only concert in a rare opportunity to see them perform as a duo. Nicknamed the “jazz messiah” and a “genius” by everyone from Herbie Hancock to The Guardian, 21-year old Jacob Collier brings his one-man show of bass guitar, drums, Steinway piano, vocals, and multitrack recording to the Eternal City on 9 November. Other artists include Shye Ben Tzur, Johnny Greenwood, and The Rajasthan Express (11 Nov); French accordionist Richard Galliano (12 Nov); music veteran John Scofield in his show “Country for Old Men” (13 Nov); Fabrizio Consoli (19 Nov); Paola Ronci and The Hot Jambalaya (20 Nov); Omar Sosa and Yilian Canizares who seamlessly blend jazz with cuban music, rap, and hip-hop (23 Nov); and many more.
