What happens when jazz meets the song? We will discover it in the Garden of the Library of Alfonsine, Monday 5 August (at 9.00 pm), thanks to the versatile and persuasive voice of Emilia Zamuner, defined by many as the “Neapolitan Ella Fitzgerald” in duo with Massimo Moriconi, the historical bassist of Mina. The concert entitled “Duets … dalla canzone al jazz” features Italian songs, standards and original songs.

From the romantic notes of Besame mucho by the Mexican Consuelo Velázquez (1940), to the blues of My Funny Valentine (from the Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical, 1937), from the refined and evocative Summertime, the great classic by George Gershwin, to Peggy‘s Fever Lee. The programme also includes Italian songs like Senza fine (Gino Paoli, 1961), La Gatta, or Vengo anch’io (Jannacci), along with the soundtracks of many summers such as Tintarella di luna (from Mina’s first album in 1960), or the Neapolitan song Pasqualino marajà (Modugno – Carosone, 1958).
