For Summer 2017 the first jazz festival by the pool in Italy, Jazz By The Pool, is Myth•anthology. For this year the festival is devoted to the myths of contemporary music and its most famous performers. A tribute presented in six evenings: from June 23 to September 1, the appointment is by the swimming pools and surrounded by the park under the starry Summer sky.
The festival starts on Friday June 23rd with the Sarah-Jane Morris 4et, and a project – Songs of Calliope – thought by the singer expressly for Myth•anthology. Sarah-Jane Morris, one of the most refined and less formal voices of the last thirty years, a trio of co-stars accompanying her, and last but not least Calliope the muse of the greek genius Homer: the opening night has the look of a great and memorable event.
On Friday, July 7th, the Italian Crooner par excellence, Matteo Brancaleoni, will bring “The Voice” on out stage with a passionate tribute to Frank Sinatra.
Lisa Hunt’s Forever Soul concert on Friday, July 21st is dedicated to motown’s “black” sound. New York’s vocalist and songwriter who has also sung with Zucchero, Pavarotti and Bocelli, will propose an explosive amalgam of the most famous soul, blues and funk covers.
To the elegance of Brazilian and international music culture is dedicated Heloisa Lourenço & Paolo Andriolo Quartetto Brasilis’ concert on Friday, August 4th. The golden voice of Heloisa “Luma” Lourenço will give a nuance of sensual and intense saudade, tyical of the classic Latin-jazz repertoire, to the festival.
On August 25th, Soultrax feat. Vanessa Haynes will be on stage. The trio, founded by Paolo Andriolo and enriched by Vanessa Haynes’s stunning voice, part of Van Morrison’s chorus and singer of the group Incognito, will perform in a soul-funk evening of the highest levels.
To end the festival, on Friday September 1st, there will be the group Papik, the well known musical project headed by the eclectic arranger and Roman producer Nerio Poggi. Jazz, soul, a touch of lounge and a 7-element band, including Alan Scaffardi‘s voice (X Factor 7), is the recipe for the “farewell cocktail” of this 9th edition of Jazz by the Pool.
Music, food and wellness: this is Jazz By the Pool’s formula. Hotel Terme Preistoriche started combining concerts, local products, the beauties of the regional park Colli Euganei and the pleasure of thermal waters in one only solution 9 years ago and it has resulted in a real cultural experience!
Thanks to the renewed collaboration with the wine association “Strada del Vino Colli Euganei”, which unites over 40 local business, each event is combined with the tasting of the wines of a different local canteen.
For hotel guests on a full or half board participation is included in the stay.
Tickets are also available for who is not staying at the hotel; information and single evening programs are available on the official Jazz by the Pool festival website.
