Programmed by Guido Spannocchi .
For our first evening we are very happy to have the Viennese Trio Blacksitter consisting of Gina Schwarz on double bass, Judith Schwarz on drums and Primus Sitter on guitar.
BLACKsitter brings together three strong,articulate voices of Austria’s Jazz scene. The band represents the broad scope and variety of that lively scene, with each of the members descending from a different ethnic background, thus developing distinct, individual sounds and compositional styles.In BLACKsitter, innovation meets and interacts with tradition.The creative exchange of the three musical concepts and approaches at times challenge each other, yet overall result in an enrichment of each individual style.
Support act is the London based duo Maria-Chiara Argirò on piano and Jamie Leeming on guitar. A meeting of kindred spirits, the music of pianist Maria Chiara Argirò and guitarist Jamie Leeming is a dialogue between two unique artists. Their repertoire spans their core influences, which include jazz, latin, classical and folk music, along with brand new compositions written for their upcoming album.
