Clusone Jazz Festival, 2013 - 33th Edition

Clusone Jazz Festival, 2013 - Edition 33
Clusone Jazz exists because it resists. We choose this phrase that best speeches of so many presents this year, certainly one of the most difficult and suffered in our long history. The difficulties encountered in raising the resources have led us to create a program of concerts and reducing the number of locations involved. After the prologue in Finale Ligure-Finalborgo, the 33rd edition of CLUSONE JAZZ sees the commitment concentrated in a small number of dates limited to Clusone and certain municipalities in the basin of the Presolana.
It was not easy to downsize and find a new challenge, but with the support of those who have understood the difficulties of the moment and we wanted to assist we have overcome the weaknesses typical of a reality that has always lived exclusively voluntary, individual commitment and contributions.
The result is an issue more concentrated, renewed also in the formula (for one concert night but free) however, in line with the tradition of the festival: a program that we hope will inspire and at the same time guaranteeing continuity to our commitment to always face to the promotion of jazz and country.

In conclusion, we were pleased to be included among the "Factories of culture" of the Province and feel the support of the musicians and their willingness to ensure that the festival could take place again this year.
A much consideration we did follow the usual organizational commitment and undeniable ... thanks to all those who have allowed us once again to be with you, jazz fans, to share the emotions that this music is always able to give.

Guano Padano is by some considered an offshoot of the band Vinicio Capossela, with whom Alessandro "Asso" Stefana, Danilo Gallo and Zeno De Rossi have collaborated for several years. A group in which the colors blend of jazz, blues, Tex-Mex and in the background, interwoven western atmospheres that recall movie soundtracks. With a pair of acclaimed recordings, Guano Padano has demonstrated the ability to characterize your own soundscape moving freely and convincingly on the ridge of the music hard to label that, for this reason, can not be harnessed.
