In Orvieto, “Mystical” New Orleans Music
At the end of December, people from all over Italy head to that medieval gem, Orvieto, to take in five days of jazz, blues – and not only. We never miss a few days of Umbria Jazz Winter festival; after all, what better way to celebrate our anniversary (late December)? Our Orvieto stay will always include a jazz lunch or jazz dinner – or both!- at the Ristorante San Francesco where musicians entertain as fans feast.
This year we enjoyed two jazz lunch concerts, both highlighted by New Orleans musicians. What nostalgia as the New Orleans Mystics sang Motown classics at one of the jazz luncheon feasts – with moves worthy of The Temptations. (And their glittering outfits of two costume changes wowed the Italians as much as the music…)
Ah, Umbria Jazz Winter – when New Orleans comes to Umbria.
