Jazz has brought the best music to Umbria for
more than 30 years.
Monini is the most important and well known
olive oil company from Umbria since 1950. Both
entities have the same passion for excellence,
and it was only natural that they would meet
sooner or later.
It is normal for those
who appreciate the harmonious sound of the jazz
classics to also appreciate the balanced flavor
of one of the great “classic” Extra
Virgin Olive Oils: the Monini Originale. And
for those who love the strong emotions of a
jam session the intense flavor of the Monini
Fruttato is a perfect compliment.
All of this will be happening
this year at Umbria Jazz New York Project where Monini will
be present for the first time in the States, to let the public
taste its fantastic products.
By blending together a
tasty “bruschetta”, a mild summer evening, with
the notes of the reinterpretation of the pieces that Charlie
Parker recorded for Verve in the Forties and Fifties with
an orchestra of strings, percussion, oboe, French horn, English
horn and harp a jazz master, we can recreate a magical experience.
The young Sicilian
saxophonist, Francesco Cafiso, puts himself to the test with
one of the more difficult but, at the same time, fascinating
repertoires in the history of Jazz.
Francesco Cafiso, and
his partners are the string orchestra “I Solisti di
Perugia,” oboist Simone Frondini, pianist Riccardo Arrighini,
bassist Aldo Zunino and drummer Stefano Bagnoli and the notes
It is difficult to find a more perfect balance.
