What are classics? Immutable pieces, irremediably sons of their time, forever fixed in the history and memory. So can classics and jazz be mixed?
Some time ago Furio Di Castri and other well-known jazzmen decided that classical music and jazz could be a fine example of a great couple: they have pulled a “classic” of a rock Frank Zappa’s piece they loved, they have well metabolized and re-presented it to the public in their own way. All enthusiasts, musicians and audience. A road is open, why not do more? Here is Modugno and jazz.
Domenico Modugno is a monument of Italian song, his “Volare” shout Italy into the economic boom, into modernity and into the world music. But jazz is not afraid of the classics and not even the Uomini in frac (Men in tails). for JAZZMI 2019 they show their Modugno.
