    "Trio's 20th Anniversary Tour": Umbria Jazz 03

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 23, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Friday, July 11 was the opening concert at Arena Santa Giuliana with magnificient artists:
    Keith Jarrett
    Gary Peacock
    Jack DeJohnette
    and of course, the concert was sold out.
    It was incredible experience listening "in vivo" this artists who performed excellent music. There was a crowd of about 20.000 people of all ages, but mostly the young ones, and what have suprised me mostly, all of them are genuine Jazz lovers.
    More then 2 hours have passed just like a second. This is a kind of concert one can remember as long as he lives.
    The tickets cost: 100€, 60€ and 20€

    Dress Code: Anything you like, after all it is a Jazz.

    The following picture was not taken on the concert, I was too far from the stage and the light conditions were poor. This is the picture from free outdoor cncert of "Tribunal Mist Jazz Band" at Piazza IV Novembre.

    Thirtieth birthday: Umbria Jazz 03

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 23, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are few festivals that do not show the signs of the passing years, the freshness of their youth transforming into a tired routine, but-again miraculously, Umbria Jazz is a full of life as ever: it is famous, admired, at times criticised, but whatever it is it is a festival that cannot be ignored.
    There are free outdoor concerts, every day, all over the Centro Storico, Giardini Carducci and Piazza IV Novembre.
    This picture was taken at Giardini Carducci during the performance of "The Ray Gelato Giants".

    Dress Code: Umbria Jazz go back to the summer of 1973, it was born in the centre of Perugia in a cafe which is no longer there.
    The first concert was held on 23 August 1973 at Villalago on Lake Piediluco near Terni. The first ever concert in Perugia was held in magnificient Piazza IV Novembre, "Weather Report" made their Italian debut on that spot.
