OPENING CONCERT

Siena Jazz Orchestra

The Siena Jazz University Orchestra is an orchestral ensemble composed of more than 20 elements, selected from among the most promising students of the First Level Academic Diploma Courses of the Siena Jazz Academy. Conducting the talented jazz talents is maestro Roberto Spadoni, one of the most active and dynamic figures on the national scene in the field of jazz production and popularization. The orchestra, born in the year 2012-2013 as part of the SJU Academic Courses and this year reaching its 10th year of activity, is entrusted with the task of disseminating in synthesis the results of the training and performance activities that the Sienese Academy produces, venturing each year to develop a project dedicated to the music of the great performers in the history of jazz, from which a repertoire takes shape, composed now of original arrangements of the most significant pieces by the same composers both from the past and contemporary, now of originals specially composed for the project.
Over the years the SJU-ORCHESTRA has had the opportunity to perform on numerous stages participating in projects of wide artistic scope and with important guests from the national and international jazz scene, including Dave Liebman, Miguel Zenon, Claudio Fasoli, Giovanni Falzone, Achille Succi, Maurizio Giammarco, Fulvio Sigurtà, Stefano Franceschini, David Krakauer, Francesco Fratini, David Liebman, Mirco Rubegni, and others.

In the desert it is easy to get lost, but you can also risk finding yourself. That is why many have fallen for it. And if in Timbuktu the Dinamitri Jazz Folklore were able to rediscover the musical roots of a culture as ancient and deep as that of the Tuareg, to get in touch with its essence, at the same time they had to put themselves back in the game.
The "Tuscan-ness," the open identity and the sense of community that made this experience different from many others, were the keys to a possible encounter. That is why a double personality emerges from this live record: on the one hand, the strong ritualistic spirituality that has always been part of the musical pulse of Dimitri Grechi Espinoza, an alto saxophonist from Livorno, and on the other hand, the overflowing vitality that has invested him through Ahmed Ag Kaedi of Amanar, or bands like Tartit and Daktaris.
The goal seems to be the study of jazz language, exploring its connections with different idioms, and making a sort of backward journey: from Ornette Coleman to modal jazz, from bebop to New Orleans polyphony, from blues to Africa. Active since 1999, the group released "Vita Nova" (Philology) in 2000, but its full potential was realized in 2003 with its second work, "Folklore in black" (Caligula), with clarinetist Tony Scott as a guest. And if the third disc, "Congo Evidence" (Caligula), boasts the presence of African-American poet Sadiq Bey, in the following "Akendengue Suite" (Rai Trade), there is the even more famous Amiri Baraka (Leroi Jones), who also appears in "Live in Sant'Anna Arresi 2013" (Rudi Records).
For the same label, Dinamitri Jazz Folklore released "La Società delle Maschere" in 2012, which marks the beginning of the collaboration with vocalist Piero Gesuè, an added value to this new compact-disc as well. Of all the previous albums, always very sensitive to the suggestions of Saharan Africa, this is the one that best captures the playful side of the band, coming across as profound without appearing too "staid." The more strictly dance-related aspect is most evident in live concerts, when the audience becomes an active part of the musical act. That is why a record like "Exwide Live" was absolutely necessary.
