|Two weeks of Jazz non stop amidst the Etruscan and Roman ruins, gothic cathedral and fourteenth century churches of Perugia. The combination of music, architecture, food, and ambience and taking all those into account, this is probably the best Jazz Festival in Europe. This year Umbria Jazz celebrates its thirty-fifty birthday with a varied programme that contains more than two hundred and fifty events on nine different stages.|
Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny & Gary Burton, Alicia Keys, Cassandra Wilson, Caetano Veloso, Carla
Bley, Charlie Haden, Brad Mehldau, R.E.M. and among the Italians Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani, Paolo Fresu, Mario Biondi and many others.
