Sabato 10 agosto il festival si sposta a Camporgiano nella Piazzetta Estense per il concerto del trio del batterista Piero Orsi con Rossano Emili ai Saxes e Luca Giovacchini alla chitarra. Un omaggio alla musica del leggendario batterista Paul Motian.

Stephen Paul Motian was an American jazz drummer, percussionist, and composer. Motian played an important role in freeing jazz drummers from strict time-keeping duties.

He first came to prominence in the late 1950s in the piano trio of Bill Evans, and later was a regular in pianist Keith Jarrett’s band for about a decade (c. 1967–1976).

Motian began his career as a bandleader in the early 1970s.

Perhaps his two most notable groups were a longstanding trio of guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Joe Lovano, and the Electric Bebop Band which featured the drummer working mostly with younger musicians doing interpretations of bebop standards.
