Italian Women In Jazz Festival


Cross-cultural events, jazz music, female creativity, Italian culture, the city of New York: these were the mixed basic ideas that created the first edition of the “Italian Women in Jazz" Festival, back in 2005.

Enzo Capua, a PR pioneer and music promoter known for his repeated successful work as the US representative for the “Umbria Jazz Festival", a reporter for SBS Radio, a correspondent for “Musica Jazz" magazine to name a fiew credentials, produced the concert at Symphony Space Theater with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute. It was the first time in the history of the New York Jazz scene to have an event that grouped Jazz bands with Italian women as leaders in one night.

For this third edition the Festival will be held at the world famous Blue Note Jazz club, during the first week-end of February: 1st , 2nd and 3rd . This represents a big step ahead for “Italian Women in Jazz". After two successful editions in a single day, the forthcoming Festival will be displayed during three nights in the most important jazz venue of New York City.
