Monty Alexander: the legend of Nat King Cole

Monty Alexander

Monty Alexander, the great native Jamaican pianist , arrives in Ascona to re-read (stage New Orleans stage from 10PM) the great Nat King Cole's repertoire. Not scared by the comparison with one of his idols, Monty Alexander doesn't abandon the touch that made him famous by enriching jazz with the nuances of blues and reggae. Almost simultaneously, Dutch Swing College Orchestra – a popular jazz formation active since 1945 – returns in Ascona (Stage Elvezia 10.30PM) after more than fifteen years.
