Paolo Fresu Devil Quartet

Past Dates

Yet another Blue Note band is closing this year’s festival edition; Italy’s “best in jazz since 1939” goes by the name of Paolo Fresu. The multi-talented trumpeter from Sardinia mixes mainstream jazz, folk and avant-garde. He has played an important role in the European jazz scene since the eighties.

His all-Italian Devil Quartet might sound more 'acoustic' than other experiences of Paolo but filtered through are the electronics ways of Paolo and Bebo, who often use the acoustic guitar as well. The 'live-program' is an authentic modern encyclopaedia of modern sounds, with several original compositions and revisited standards. It is mainly ‘jazz’, but is also a true ‘melange’ with deep and modernized philosophies.
