MONTALCINO JAZZ AND WINE, JULY 2013


Jazz & Wine 2012 at Montalcino's fortress
Jazz and Wine - one of the main events of a summer spent in Val d'Orcia

The 16th edition of my favorite festival in Italy starts with three concerts in the courtyard of Castello Poggio alle Mura, the HQ of the Banfi winery. After that the festival moves on to its traditional home, Montalcino's imposing fortress right at the entrance of Brunello town. 


WAITING FOR JAZZ & WINE AT CASTELLO BANFI

The flyer of this year's Jazz & Wine shows the pianist Bill Evans absorbed in his magical play. This even though piano solo and piano trios play a minor role in the 2013 edition of the festival than in previous years. Nevertheless, the program awaits us with some great names from the Italian and international Jazz scene.
