Special Guest of Jammin’ year 2020: Saturnino, Gianluca Petrella, Michele Papadia, Serena Brancale, Federico Malaman, Maurizio Giammarco, Fabrizio Sferra, Pierpaolo Principato, Luca Bulgarelli, Daniele Pomo, Dario Giacovelli and Luca Proietti.

13 evenings, from 2 to 23 September, hosted in different outdoor locations:
Alcazar Summer Terrazza del Gianicolo, Casa del Jazz, Monk Club

Jammin’ year 2020 “18 years of Jammin’, artistic maturity uncovered between mutual interactions, nights transfigured like paintings of an exhibition, sound illustrations, impressionist insights.
The Muse are daughters of the Mnemosine memory, of which they feed without ever remaining nostalgic prey, free of any reverential fear, pure becoming.

Why is Jazz, where is Pop, what is Nu-Soul, for whom is Hip Hop? No artist should ever remain bound to a single sterile category of gender, capable only of identifying the shelves, regret forgetting or, worse, indifference”.

Stefano Mastruzzi:
Artistic Director Jammin’

The experimentation in writing and arrangement, as well as the production of the songs, exalts the peculiarity of the project that comes to light by sharing different experiences, aimed at the construction of a single sound that is the expression of all individual members, reaching its original and distinct figure.

The Resident Prog Band “Roundabouts” was born in 2018 with the intention of collecting the most important pages of “Rock Progressivo”, which has always been a reference style for every avant-garde and musical and conceptual experimentation.
A “Book of Prog” that collects the most representative authors of the verb “Progressive”: From the British classics Genesis, Yes and King Crimson to the Canadian Rush, pioneers of Metal Prog, from the contemporaries and Neo-Prog Porcupine Tree to the Italian anthology Banco del Mutuo Soccorso.
To coordinate the project Daniele Pomo, drummer, composer and singer of the Ranestrane, a reference band of contemporary Italian Progressive, with which he has produced eight albums and collected international collaborations and tours in Europe and Japan.
But among the rows of the “Roundabouts” we find above all the “Best Progressive Youth” of the Saint Louis College of Music, to demonstrate that the visionary utopia of the Prog is alive and present even today and in the new generations.

Synth Louis Ensemble was born as a tribute to electronic music, to synthesizers and more generally to electronic musical instruments in all their forms.
The repertoire ranges from classical songs revisited in electronic form, in a sort of tribute to Wendy Carlos and her “Switched On Bach” – the album that made many appreciate the synthesizer as a musical instrument in all respects – to original compositions close to the most current trends, passing by songs of pop style, also revised in electronic format.
Project coordinator Synth Louis is Luca Proietti: “One of the main purposes of this ensemble is to highlight the played part, often little present in many performances of electronic music”
