Gianluca Guidi - Peperoncino Jazz Festival

Gianluca Guidi, Italian singer and actor,  performs at the Institute opening the first edition of the "Peperoncino Jazz Festival - New York Session",  which takes place from  May 20 to May 26 in several locations around the city, including  the Birdland Theater.

The "Peperoncino Jazz Festival", now in its XVIII edition, takes place during the summer months in Calabria, Italy, and presents for the first time a New York spring session, with the participation of great Italian and American (but with Italian origins) artists. John Patitucci, the Brooklyn-native, award winning bass player and composer joins, as co-artistic director,  the festival's artistic director Sergio Gimigliano.

Guidi presents: "That’s Life!", a tribute to Frank Sinatra. A journey in music and words recalling many of the most beautiful songs made famous by the interpretation of the unforgettable "The Voice". Guidi, who will be joined by three true champions of international jazz scene - pianist Steven Feifke, bassist Alexander Claffy and drummer Elio Coppola - will also entertain the public with some anecdotes and skits, about the life of the great singer.
