Back for the whole summer Il Fiorino sull'Arno (Lungarno Pecori Giraldi - Florence, near the Ponte di San Niccolò), an open-air venue that offers seven days a week good music and quality entertainment, along with excellent pizzas and other specialties culinary, especially Mediterranean; after dinner you can have the comforts of a well-stocked bar.
Not just night space: the bar is open from 9am to midnight ; from 7pm an aperitif will be set; from 20 you have dinner. All in a very pleasant space, in the midst of old trees that protect from the summer heat.
The concerts start at 9.30pm and are free .
Uninterruptedly open until September, also this year the Fiorino sull'Arno will have some fixed appointments (especially with the Sunday milonga , now a must in the Florentine Summer) and assorted musical programming, always different. The billboard is still in progress and will be released in the coming days.
The 2019 season opens on Thursday 20 June at 9.30pm , when the overflowing on stage Sunrise Jazz Orchestra conducted by Stefano Rapicavoli, one of the first jazz orchestras in Tuscany for chronology and quality, the most important and appreciated, able to involve the public with the energy, passion and fun that characterize the ensemble (which is often enriched by the presence of the Canadian singer Maria Loscerbo) in every single element. Initially directed by Franco Baggiani, it then passed under the guidance of Nicola Vernuccio, with whom he achieved a high technical level always supported by great enthusiasm. From 2002 to the direction of the Sunrise Jazz Orchestra is the drummer and composer Stefano Rapicavoli , who has expanded the repertoire and strengthened the energy, passion and fun that characterize it. In the same year he began to collaborate with the orchestra the extraordinary Canadian singer Maria Loscerbo. Many well-known names in the Tuscan jazz field, also attracted by the great harmony and vitality of the group, were part of the training, dedicating them also original arrangements and pieces; a repertoire has thus been enriched that touches all the strands of traditional and non-traditional jazz, with excursions in the funky, in Latin-American rhythms, in popular music of Balkan and Italian tradition, choices that have fully confirmed the remarkable versatility of the orchestra. Recently some arrangements have been signed by the musicians of the orchestra itself, who with their contribution have increasingly demonstrated the will and the ability of the big band to establish a real musical laboratory. The Sunrise Jazz Orchestra has collaborated with high-level artists, including Ed Neumeister, Mathias Schubert, Marco Tamburini, Stefano "Cocco" Cantini, Gianluigi Trovesi, Pietro Tonolo, Mirko Guerrini, Luca Marianini, Claudia Tellini, Rudy Migliardi, Stefano Bollani , Roy Paci. The Orchestra has played in many venues renowned for live music including the "Pinocchio", the Parterre, the Murate, the OMI, the Universal, the Doctor Jazz in Pisa, La Fornace in Padua, and participated at the first edition of the Big Band Jazz Festival. It was also the only Italian jazz group to be included in the programming of the "Fiesolana Estate" of July 1999, together with artists such as Ornella Vanoni and Goran Bregovic. Don't miss the chance to listen to it, then!
But for the first week the Fiorino has another gem in store: Saturday 22 from 17 space to the historic record label Contempo. From 18 Contempo Records and Gianni Maroccolo present: Gianni Maroccolo - Alone II. On the occasion of the release of ALONE II, the second volume of Gianni Maroccolo's perpetual disc, one of the two zero volume printers and a volume two test pressing will be drawn at random among the 155 subscribers to Alone Lp format, while the glass master of the zero volume will be drawn at random among the 106 subscribers to Alone format Cd. Gianni Maroccolo will be present at the draw and will award the prizes "live"!
To enrich the evening, there will be:
Life In The Woods - Nothing Is
I Life In The Woods, a young group formed in 2017, call themselves a rock'n'roll band. Logan Ross (vocals and guitar), Frank Lucchetti (bass and vocals) and Tomasch Lesny (drums and vocals) recorded their first album with Gianni Maroccolo, due out in September for Contempo Records. On June 22, the preview will be released on 7 ": NOTHING IS! Steppenwolf, Led Zeppelin, Free ... these are the first names that come to mind when listening to LITW! Those who have seen them play at the second edition of Contempo Night (February 2019, Auditorium FLOG) know that their live performances are to be seen absolutely !!!
Bobby Joe Long's Friendship Party - Semo Solo Scemi
The Bobby Joe Long's Friendship Party (BJLFP), also known as the Oscura Combo Romana, is an instrument of the 03.33 art project. They are born with the aim of conveying the messages and contents 03:33 under a form that they themselves define with Dramasynthcoattowave sarcasm. After the EP Vortice de Totip and the Roma Est and Bundytismo albums, all entirely self-produced, they are put under contract by Contempo in 2018 and on May 24, 2019 Semo Solo Scemi comes out, the final act of the "trucilogia" of East Rome. They always start in 2019 to perform live, debuting at the FLOG Auditorium as part of the Contempo Night 2019. Not to be missed!
Admission is obviously free ; Live performances start at 8.30pm and go on until 10.30pm. It closes with a convivial moment in the company of Contempo: those who wish can enjoy the Tuscan specialties of the Fiorino sull'Arno restaurant (dinner with a fixed menu 20 euros; booking recommended). The draw will be during the evening and the prizes will be autographed live by Gianni Maroccolo.
