Catania Jazz

28 years of successes

It was November 24th, 1983, when Sun Ra Arkestra opened our first season of concert. That concert, imprinted indelibly in our memory, marked the beginning of an adventure that including ups and downs is now in its 28 th year of life. As unrepeatable moments before our eyes of enthusiasts have materialized artists likeTyner, Coleman, Gillespie, Wayne Shorter, Pastorius… figures that are almost legendary, true heroes of our times.
In recent years, Catania Jazz brought under the volcano, according to his abilities, the best that the Jazz International scene has offered, not receding on very difficult choices ahead of transgressive, we have followed the paths of the New Age and Oriental Music and has also organized the first Womad festival in Italy and an entirely female programme, in the profound conviction that no musical culture, from anywhere in the world comes, can consider itself immune from the Jazz influence.
And, in our view, the reason for this fatal attraction seems clear: Jazz music is free.
In these 28 years he has presented to the public Catania the biggest names in jazz, international, European and Italian.
