Enchants in Ravello

Dec. 24, 2014

Rounds of Jazz at Midnight
Italy

There’s an outdoor club in the little square of Ravello set up for a concert different from the usual events that this beautiful town offers during the summer. The club drums up a different sound: Jazz at Midnight.

Tonight on the scene are Phyllis Blanford with Chicago Beau. Blanford is an African-American vocalist well-known in Italy, especially for some of her collaborations with great Italian musicians like Tullio De Piscopo and Pino Daniele.

The sound that extends from the artistic encounter between Blanford and Chicago Beau is new. It explores a relationship between poetry, blues, rhythm and traditional American and Mediterranean blues songs. Events like this in Ravello have attracted large audiences of fans and toursits. The intention of the event is to overcome the barriers created between the different genres.
