Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Si avvia a conclusione la 31° edizione del Barga Jazz Festival con gli ultimi imperdibili concerti .

Venerdì 30 Agosto, nella bellissima location del Parco Conservatorio Santa Elisabetta, saliranno sul palco del festival i musicisti del Tony Cattano “Naca” Quartet. Oltre allo stesso Cattano al trombone, leader del progetto,  il gruppo è formato da Emanuele Parrini al violino, Matto Anelli al contrabbasso e Andrea Melani alla batteria.

Il repertorio si inserisce nell’ambito del Jazz contemporaneo ma ricorda spesso quelle sonorità cinematografiche e visionarie adatte ad un pubblico più ampio.
