Dr. Jazz & Mr. Funk: Paolo Belli: singer, trueborn entertainer, and TV star with a passion for swing
FIRST TIME IN ASCONA!
Paolo Belli is a singer, bandleader, and versatile artist whose unique swingy pop has earned him a name both in the music and TV scene. For over ten years, he has performed alongside some of the big names of Italian television, both as singer and showman. Together with his Big band he boasts hundreds of concerts in Italy’s main piazzas; Belli has furthermore performed abroad and collaborated with high-caliber artists such as Sam Moore, Dan Aykroyd, Billy Preston, Jon Hendricks, Jimmy Whiterspoon and many more. In 2013 he filled the Blue Note in Milan with a double show; he repeated the sensation a year after. Belli will be in Ascona, accompanied by a seven-member band, where he will present his latest album dedicated to swing and the music of the 1930s.
