04 Sep SARAH JANE MORRIS & GIANNI VANCINI FINALLY TEAMED UP
SARAH JANE MORRIS
& GIANNI VANCINI PROJECT
A modern jazz superstar: she became famous for her collaboration with the Communards in the mid-80s and infamous for a later censored version of the classic “Me and Mrs Jones”, Sarah Jane Morris has always attracted attention to herself both for her civil commitment and her “soul roots” voice, strong as a seismic wave. Her greatest successes are iconic both in Great Britain, but also in Japan, Germany, Greece and Italy, where she was awarded with the Verona’s city key, honoured with an European Grammy, and she won the famous Sanremo Festival together with Riccardo Cocciante
Sarah Jane Morris will share the stage with the Italian saxophonist Gianni Vancini, he joins with Sarah the same contemporary jazz/pop characteristics. His projects reached the top of the US and Northern European charts and he is considered by many “the Italian ambassador of contemporary jazz”. Among the numerous awards, Gianni is the only Italian artist invited at the prestigious cruise “Dave Koz & Friends At Sea” together with all the main contemporary jazz artists of the world.
Their presence at ValdobbiadeneJazz 2019 heralds the collaboration between the two artists that will see the light with the release of the new Vancini’s recording project scheduled for the beginning of the new year.
The band: Tommaso Graziani (Ivan Graziani’s son) on drums, Marco Dirani (Annalisa, Tricarico, Tozzi) on bass, Daniel Bestonzo on the keyboard (collaborator of Eros Ramazzotti) and Ivan Geronazzo (Patty Pravo, Red Canzian) on guitar.
