I-Jazz

 
Il 1 febbraio 2008 si e’ costituita I-Jazz, l’Associazione Nazionale che raccoglie alcuni dei più conosciuti e seguiti festival jazz Italiani; hanno partecipato all’atto costitutivo 14 manifestazioni musicali in 12 differenti regioni, dal nord al sud, alle isole.
         L’Associazione persegue l’obiettivo della diffusione di progetti collegati al jazz, dalle rassegne e festival che si svolgono nel periodo invernale e nei teatri, ai circuiti che uniscono varie città e teatri su base regionale o provinciale, ai festival estivi con sede in luoghi suggestivi e prestigiosi; questa iniziativa prende avvio dalla necessità di costituire un punto di riferimento per attività che in questi anni hanno registrato una sensibile espansione ­– sia per le potenzialità della creatività artistica sia per l’attenzione del pubblico – ma che hanno necessità di esprimere progetti di maggiore visibilità nazionale coinvolgendo musicisti ed operatori, contribuendo all’impegno per una riforma della musica veramente aperta a tutti i contenuti di qualita’.
