Umbria Jazz 2001

On 13th July 2001, Vinicio Capossela performs at Umbria Jazz with his band (Giancarlo Bianchetti: guitar, Enrico Lazzarini: double bass, Mirco Mariani: drums, Luciano Titi: mantici, Edoardo De Angelis: intonarumori) and Marc Ribot as a special guest, with his Cubanos Postizos. 


Jazz means trying to be there, where and when something is happening, writing everything without changing a piece of paper. A few years ago, I reached Umbria Jazz breathless. My car stopped working and I had to hitchhike with a group of Polish people. It did not work much. João Gilberto got into the Morlacchi theatre just two hours after the determined time. He said, without apologizing, that music should have come to him, and not the other way round. 


Now, it seems that my moment is there. We will offer our mariachi circus as an opening. 

Although I always wanted to be a ballad songwriter, since a little time I started writing weird songs. I called them «Canzoni a manovella». By summer they took a turn that reminds more of railways and serenade, which is nothing but a kind of ballad that lost its ceiling and wanders free in the air. With those songs, we will open the festival.

During this occasion, we will share the stage with one of the greatest musicians nowdays: Marc Ribot. And if jazz is something that is happening right now, in this moment, well... That will be the moment.
