17 - 8:30 PM
Joe Lovano US5
The tenor of tenors! It is no coincidence that Joe Lovano devoted one of his major albums, Viva Caruso, in 2002 to the repertoire of the mythical tenor Enrico Caruso. Crowned in 2019 "tenor saxophonist of the year" in the famous referendum of the critics of the American magazine DownBeat, he has established himself as a figure of contemporary jazz, combining a real rhythmic flexibility with a high harmonic ease and a very distinctive sound, which requires complete mastery of the instrument. A synthesis of the history of the tenor saxophone, a sort of living memory that indiscriminately embraces tradition and the avant-garde, without ever losing the lyricism and taste for singing that are not foreign to his Italian-American roots.
To retrace the Lovano saga is to plunge into the daily life of a jazzman for half a century: His twenty-year friendship with Paul Motian and Bill Frisell for one of the most sublime trios in the history of jazz, the fraternal bond with John Scofield, the consecration of a long series of albums with Blue Note, until his brand new signature with ECM, where he recently released an album as leader and multiplied dazzling collaborations, notably with the Italian trumpet player Enrico Rava, or last summer in Juan, as a "luxury" guest of Diana Krall.
