Jam Session with Giampaolo Casati Quartet
Giampaolo Casati Quartet (Italy) Giampaolo Casati - trumpet Gianluca Tagliazucchi - piano Dario Scopesi - double bass Enrico Tommasini - drums
A reunion band composed of some old friends who, at the end of last summer, decided to create a quartet to play the “standards”, meaning the classic pieces of jazz music which represent a common heritage to all jazz players, besides having been the main songs for the most part of jazz history.
After some concerts held in November, the “Just Friends Quartet” will be performing at Dolomiti Ski Jazz 2019, with the same purpose of entertaining the audience while having fun playing the great classics of the tradition. Artists such as Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and George Gershwin will be presented with swing versions, paying special attention both to the melodic expressions and the improvisations themes
