For "big" (concerts at 9:30 pm), the festival will be started on September 8th, by Avant Orchestra from Novate M.se, a big band with 15 jazz musicians with extraordinary curriculum; the Avant Orchestra presents this year his first album, "Let Ring", a mix of their own songs and daring performances (for example, the score of the arrangement that Duke Ellington wrote for Nutcracker Suite and Peer Gynt ). Afterwards, in the evening of 9th September, the vocal quintet Alti &Bassi, will present their sixth album, which in 2015 received two nominations at CARA, the most important world prize dedicated to "a cappella" music, such as "Best Jazz Album" and " Best European Album". The exhibition closes on 30th September with Franco Cerri, icon of Italian jazz and person of great human depth, who will play his guitar with Alex Orciari at Doublebass and Alessandro Usai at guitar.

A various and exciting program , able to engage different audience tastes.
