Arrivederci, Umbria Jazz, 2011“Three Ladies of Blues” had all rockin’ at the jazz aperitif last night at Hotel Brufani, one of the last events of the stupendo 10-day Umbria Jazz festival in Perugia.
I missed phenomenal young Sicilian jazz sax player Francesco Cafisso this year but my meeting with him in 2004 – when his wailing sax took the Perugia rooftops off at age 15 – was memorable.
I was sorry to have missed him this year – but glad we made an Umbria Jazz highlight: Santana.
