When: Tue., May 11, 8 p.m. 2010
Umbria Jazz Festival, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, is proud to present the first Chicago concert by great Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava, best known Italian jazz musician in the world, and his New Quintet. Combining Innovation with tradition, this ensemble creates a sound that's articulated, lively, extremely enjoyable to listen to, always surprising. Umbria Jazz is among the most important European jazz festivals and takes place annually in Perugia, transforming the Umbrian hill town into an international crossroads for music lovers, who arrive there not only from Italy but from all corners of Europe and USA. UPDATE: Rava had to cancel his appearance; saxophonist Dan Kinzelman will lead the band.
