21st Edition Jazz In The Park 2012: Homage To Bernardo Sassetti
July 15, 6 p.m., Serralves Auditorium CONCERT ‘PELAS MÃOS DE BERNARDO/THROUGH BERNARDO’S HANDS’
Parque da Fundação de Serralves Rua de Serralves 977 Porto
In 2012, Jazz returns to Serralves Park on July 7, 14 and 21 always at 6 p.m. This year the stage at the Serralves Park Tennis Court will welcome a Portuguese orchestra, LUME – Lisbon Underground Music Ensemble and two groups from the United States: the quartet of saxophonist Marty Ehrlich and the BassDrumBone trio. The 21st edition of Jazz In The Park will also host a round table and a concert in homage to Bernardo Sassetti, the musician who sudden and unexpectedly died last May.
Sassetti will be remembered in an informal conversation that will bring together musicians with whom he shared the closest complicity in key moments of his jazz career. This moment takes place at the Serralves auditorium on the afternoon of July 14 at 3 p.m. The following day, at 6 p.m., also at the Auditorium, the concert ‘Pelas Mãos de Bernardo/Through Bernardo’s Hands’ will be performed, gathering five young pianists who, while still largely unknown in the main venues of Jazz, share the promise of a brilliant future. The concert will feature a repertoire of original themes by Sassetti and by authors associated to his discography and brings together two generations, with the young guest soloists accompanied by three of Bernardo’s faithful, senior companions: double bass players Zé Eduardo and Carlos Barreto, and drummer André Sousa Machado.
