VIAN JAZZ & BLUES
Musical reading performed by well-known international artists: Fabrizio Bosso (trumpet), Gianfranco Salvatore (electronics and soundscapes) and Carole Ventura (voice).
The concert is a dialogue between the actress and the musicians who improvise and interpret extracts from Boris Vian’s romances, and his expert and poetic vision of jazz and music.
The artists interpret musical references from Boris Vian’s prose reproducing the intrinsic music of the language and the style.
Performed in Rome last December, the concert was welcomed by both audiences and critics.

With great sensitivity, Fabrizio Bosso uses a unique and personal language which is the result of a great looking style.

His work’s dominant features are strength, freshness and lyricism.
