Two stars of Italian music to open the 35th edition

Easygoing ad ironic swing blues: Sergio Caputo and Francesco Baccini

Sergio Caputo & Francesco Baccini

JazzAscona 2019 presents (on June 20) two great stars of Italian music: Sergio Caputo and Francesco Baccini. The two, voice and guitar the former, and voice and piano, the latter, form the “The Swing Brothers”. Members of a band that came to be almost by chance in 2016, the two artists clearly enjoy each other’s company on stage, in shows that are ironic and easygoing. Baccini and Caputo are two of the most original, nonconformist musicians in the Italian scene; together they produced Chewing Gum Blues, a record that goes back to the basics of swing and blues. In their live show they will present their joyful album songs, as well as their greatest hits, such as Caputo’s Un sabato italiano and Il Garibaldi innamorato or Baccini’s Le donne di Modena and Sotto questo sole.
