Roma Jazz Festival 2019

Archie Shepp at Rome Jazz Festival

Roma Jazz Festival: No borders. Migration and integration.

Rome’s Jazz festival returns for its 43rd edition with 23 concerts. “No borders. Migration and integration” is the title of this year’s festival–a program designed to investigate how jazz music reflects an irresistible urgency to fight old and new forms of exclusion.

In the decades since its inception, the event has steadily elevated the genre – past headliners include musical icons like Miles Davis, Ray Charles and B.B. King. This year’s lineup is no exception, with an exciting roster of modern day jazz’s most prolific artists and prodigious newcomers.

Jazz icons like Archie Shepp, Abdullah Ibrahim, Dave Holland, Ralph Towner, Gary Barts and Dayramir Gonzalez are in store, but also contemporary jazz exponents like Kokoroko, Moonlight Benjamin, Donny McCaslin, Maisha and Cory Wong. Great female protagonists like Dianne Reeves and Carmen Souza side by side with the most recent talents like May Han Oh, Elina Duni and Federica Michiasanti. Also in store with their explorations of Mediterranean and Asian jazz are Radiodervish, Tigran Hamasyan and the Mare Nostrum ensemble with Paolo Fresu, Richard Galliano and Jan Lundgren on the one side, and the linguistic contamination of Luigi Five with the Hypertext O’rchestra on the other. The anti-Trump drummer, Antonio Sanchez, and his jazz in the time of sovereignism, and the nostalgia for migration told through the music of Big Fat Orchestra. Italian artists are also very present in the last week of the festival, with the Leonard Bernstein Tribute with the saxophonist Gabriele Coen, and Roberto Ottaviano, presenting his latest record–Eternal Love.
