“WHAT DO MAN LIVE ON?” THE MUSIC OF KURT WEILL PEPPE SERVILLO & COSTANZA ALEGIANI WITH OJS DIRECTED BY MARCO TISO
Kurt Weill’s compositions are classics that belong to every musical field, from jazz to pop, and have been immortalized by extraordinary interpreters such as Louis Armstrong, Sting, Billie Holiday, the Doors, Ella Fitzgerald, Lou Reed, Frank Sinatra, Tom Waits , Ute Lemper, Milva and a thousand others. Many of these songs, with lyrics in Italian, are revived in a production of remarkable depth that has its strong points in the art of Peppe Servillo, one of the most charismatic figures of our musical theatre, in the versatility of Costanza Alegiani, young but established vocal talent, in the original arrangements by Gianluigi Giannatempo and in the execution of the Sicilian Jazz Orchestra conducted by Marco Tiso, baton of great personality and competence.
“AN EVENING WITH MALIKA AYANE” MALIKA AYANE WITH OJS DIRECTED BY DOMENICO RIINAMalika Ayane as you’ve never heard before. In this unprecedented project launched by The Brass Group, the Milanese singer, a versatile artist with inimitable vocal talent, falls in love with jazz and accepts the challenge of reinterpreting in a completely different way the songs that have marked her career and the numerous classics to which she has often given memorable releases. Songs such as “Tre cose”, “Senza fare sul serio”, “Come foglie” (her first success in Sanremo – 2009) or “La prima cosa bella” and “Che cosa hai messo nel caffè” are revived in an exquisitely jazz key with the arrangements by Antonino Pedone and with the sparkling sounds of the Sicilian Jazz Orchestra conducted by Domenico Riina.
“GOLD VOICE” – CON OJS DIRETTA DA VITO GIORDANO“Gold Voice” is Tony Hadley, a wonderful artist who from the role of acclaimed rock star as lead singer and frontman of Spandau Ballet has in more recent years embraced the dimension of fine jazz singer, capable of dealing with the most famous international classics with a still intact and dazzling vocal style and a truly infectious swing component. In this third experience with the Sicilian Jazz Orchestra, this time conducted by Domenico Riina, the London artist offers a varied and fascinating repertoire including jazz classics, his own original compositions and a few Spandau Ballet hits (including “True” and “Through the barricades”), ranging from Cole Porter’s “Love for sale,” Burt Bacharach’s “Wives and lovers,” Lorenz Hart and Richard Rogers’ “Bewitched,” Michel Legrand’s “I will wait for you” and other timeless great classics.
