Nicolao Valiensi Quintet at Barga Jazz Club
A welcome return to the Barga Jazz Club this evening to Nicolao Valiensi and his formidable quintet: Simone Venturi on piano, Sauro Donati on guitar, Luca Franchini on double bass and, of course, Franco Mariani driving the whole thing along on drums.
Today the 16th February is National Saving Energy Day in Italy where people trying out various systems that visibly show that they are attempting to save energy.
This evening the lights that normally illuminate many national monuments in Rome and Milano will be switched off to â€œhighlightâ€ this attempt at saving energy on a large scale.
At the Barga Jazz Club, candles were the order of the day … a wonderful subdued lighting that just added to the atmosphere as Nicolao and his band walked us hand in hand through some fine well crafted tunes.
