ASCONA JAZZ AWARD WINNER 2018
80 years old and a career spanning 60 years: Paolo Tomelleri, rewarded at last year’s festival for his exceptional contribution to the development of jazz in Italy, is a legendary musician from the Milano scene. With experience also as a writer of theater and film music, he is a successful soloist and orchestra director who has collaborated with Enzo Jannacci for over thirty years (as well as with Ornella Vanoni, Giorgio Gaber, and Adriano Celentano) and with famous jazzists such as Tony Scott, Joe Venuti, Jimmy McPartland, Clark Terry, Bill Coleman, or Phil Woods. This year, together with his acclaimed Big Band, he will present the repertoire of Woody Herman, Artie Shaw, and other memorable 1930s big bands, in an unforgettable one-off concert.
