Program

Among the bigs that await you at the Sicilia Jazz Festival there are great names, as Stefano Bollani, who has just won Nastri d’Argento 2021 as composer of the best soundtrack for the movie “Carosello Carosone” and the drums legend Billy Cobham, the great bassist and composer Richard Bona, and the original productions of the Orchestra Jazz Siciliana along with other leading figures of Italian music such as Alex Britti, Samuel
Romano, Roy Paci and a tribute to Franco Battiato. Among the dates there is also the concert dedicated to Lelio Giannetto, which will see the participation of the Instant Composer Pool and of the Sicilian Improvisers
Orchestra. The Festival will be preceded by two exceptional previews that are exclusive in Europe. The first one in July with Dee Dee Bridgewater, authentic jazz singing legend, the great Memphis artist returns in Sicily after 17 years (the first time dates back to 1988) and in August the other preview with Lucy Woodward, former member of Snarky Puppy and, before that, backup singer for Rod Stewart. Both will be accompanied by the Orchestra Jazz Siciliana.
