At 8 pm, after the official greetings, the Tent Jazz Club in piazza Torre will host a double concert
After the Sophisticated Lady theme of 2012 we once again refer to the genius of Duke Ellington to celebrate - as we believe is best - the rhythm and energy of jazz music: It Don’t Mean a thing (If it Ain’t Got that Swing). The 2013 edition will once again host a vast amount of swing, as well as carefully selected Blues, Gospel, R&B and New Orleans Beat. With more than 160 concerts held over nine days, 60.000 spectators from all over the world and a music choice of undoubted value, JazzAscona reconfirms its prime place – during the last week of June – as one of the European Jazz capitals. The most important news is represented by its new format, with concerts completely free of charge during weekdays and some top events for which the access will be granted by a special ticket. The entry during the two week-ends will be regulated as during the past editions, with a set price which will allow access to all stages and their rich and catching program. We are very pleased to confirm the daytime concerts, the jam sessions and of course the brass band parades… Welcome to the festive world of JazzAscona!
