In November 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. International Jazz Day brings together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics, and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about jazz and its roots, future and impact; raise awareness of the need for intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding; and reinforce international cooperation and communication.
The Mix Arts Sense wants to celebrate this special day with:
Angelo Gregorio plays “La vie en Swing”
Lets go for a walk through the years ’30 and ’40 in America and France. Angelo Gregorio (sax) will let you discover the New Orleans swing and then will bring you across the ocean to arrive to the jazz of Django Reinhart and Grappelli.
♫ Angelo Gregorio [IT] saxophones, voice
♫ Julien Gillain [BE] violin, piano, voice
♫ Cyrano Vatel [IT] guitar
♫ Antoine Guiot [BE] doublebass
♫ Lucas Vanderputten [BE] drums
A very special concert where entertainment and educational aspects are linked to help the public to understand that music, in this case jazz, is in a permanent and creative connection with all the other arts and draws, interprets and reworks values and traditions.
