BOSTON / UMBRIA–Did you see the Boston Globe? Sunday’s paper. November 26th. In their “Destinations/Night life” section they had a big photo of trumpet legend Paolo Frescu. He’s being honored at Umbria Jazz Inverno in Orvieto, Italy. They had his photo and a nice mention of the festival. If you are going to be in the area Dec 28 – Jan 1, check it out. We’ve been. It is seriously awesome. 13th-century buildings filled with modern Italian Jazz! The music pouring out the windows and spilling over the happy shoppers in the streets. You bet those Umbrian hills are alive with the sound of music during the holidays. The Globe calls the whole event “a New Years Eve party disguised as a jazz festival”. Take it from me, or take it from the Globe, Umbria Jazz is a great way to end the year on a high note. Full details on the Umbria Jazz Web site.
See you in Italy,
