Jazz in the Night: Roberta Gambarini & Fabrizio Bosso – Jazz San Javier 2019



Homage concert to Roy Hargrove.

In 2006, at the IX edition of Jazz San Javier, we had the privilege of enjoying a concert by the legendary pianist Hank Jones with Roberta Gambarini and Roy Hargrove as special guests, one of the magical moments in the history of the Festival. After the death of the great trumpeter Roy Hargrove, who visited us that year and once again in the “Músicas del Alma” festival, Jazz San Javier wanted to invite again, for a tribute concert to Roy, Roberta Gambarini, a wonderful Italian jazz singer settled in the United States, of whom Hank Jones himself said that “she is the best jazz vocalist appeared over fifty years.” Admired by jazz giants, Roberta has played with James Moody, Jimmy Heath, Herbie Hancock, Toots Thielemans, Dave Brubeck, among others, and often with Roy Hargrove. By her side is the prestigious Italian trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso, a true virtuoso and great improviser, considered one of the best jazz trumpeters in Europe.
