CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR'S EVE

from December 26, 2017 to January 01, 2018

PIAZZA SAN GIACOMO

9.30 p.m. DJ Swing music selection

The historical centre has become a symbol of social inclusion and a fertile mix between citizens and other cultures, crossed by many tourists all the year round.

Kind of like Jazz music and what it has been representing during this first century of its life (the first album was recorded in 1917). Who can best express it, if not the Swing and the great orchestras that have made its history? DJ Swing's selection of great successes will make you relive that magic.

 

 

10.30 p.m. A Tutto Swing

The group retraces the golden years of Swing between 1920s and 1940s, influenced and captured by the sound of great historical orchestras such as Glen Miller, Duke Ellington and Cole Porter. Between 1920 and 1950, Swing lived a Golden Age, giving life to dozens of orchestras and brilliant musicians who brought it at the peak of its popularity. Jazz was considered dance music, and when the orchestras played the music became a real opportunity to socialise, whites with blacks, the poor with the rich, together on the dance floor. Just like in the modern discos, even if the music on the dance floor has changed, while Jazz will always survive the fads.

 

 

00.05 a.m. The Longuettes

The Swing and boogie-woogie style of the Boswell and the Andrews Sisters, pioneers of American female polyphonic singing, has evidently influenced their repertoire, but with the refined and breezy touch of the Chordettes, 1950s music icons. Mix it with the rebel and playful 1960s pop music and don't forget to add a pinch of Italian style, taken from the Trio Lescano and the Quartetto Cetra: you will obtain a gritty sound, refined, catchy and above all very, very danceable.
