Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock in Rome

herbiehanwayneshorter11
Summer in Rome is a delight for lovers of good music. Brilliant performers of all types of music make sure to stop in the Eternal City while touring Europe from June to August. Enjoying a great concert followed by a fine meal during a Roman summer, when breeze finally starts to blow and people take the streets to simply enjoy life is an experience to be lived.

Rhapsodic tones apart, one of the concerts we are already looking forward is that of Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. They are two of the greatest living legends of jazz but the best about them is not their historical importance (which cannot be overstated) but the quality of their playing. Just as the Roman evening described above, the interplay beetwen these two is one of those fine pleasures you just cannot deny yourself when given the chance.

The concert will take place July 26 2014 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica (which can be easily reached from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes) an 9:00 PM.

Leonard Cohen in Rome

leonardcohenThere are few singers as talented and enigmatic as Leonard Cohen and whose work keeps eliciting so much interest after a career that spans more tha 40 years.

Mr Cohen was already an accomplished poet when his first record, The Songs of Leonard Cohen, saw the light in 1967 and indeed his attitudes towards art and fame are more those of a writer or a mystic poet that those of a rockstar. A New Yorker’s recent review of one of his performances portrayed him as an elder sage, not singing but uttering words with a voice that told itself stories through timbre and emphasys only.

mr Cohen will be performing at the Centrale Live Foro Italico July 7, 2013 at 21:00 PM. To get there from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes,  take the Bus 910 from the station Termini and get off at the stop ” LGT THAON DI REVEL/FORO ITALICO”; then follow this map.

Supernatural Music: Carlos Santana in Rome

carlos_santana_concerto_a_roma_luglioProbably one of the least likely places to look for a guru of Rock and Roll is Autlan, a little Mexican town near the Pacific coast, but that’s where Carlos Santana was born.

Santana’s family moved from Autlan to Tijuana, near the border with the United States, and then to San Francisco. It was there where Carlos was going to amaze the world with his bold fusion of rock, African and latin rythms and oriental mysticism.

Carlos spent the 70′s and 80′s at the forefront of rock but the sales of his records slowed down and by the end of the 90′s he didn’t have a contract with any record label. His luck changed with Supernatural, an album studded with rock celebrities that marked Santanas’ comeback as a big name in rock.

Now as a part of his Sentient tour Santana will visit Rome next July 28. The concert will take place at the Foro Italico, that can be easily reached from Hotel Des Artistes (red subway line until Ottaviano, the bus 32).

Gold-Cobra-Limp-Bizkit

“Take a look around”was the first one and It was the mission imposible 2 soundtrack as well.

Deep Purple Rome 2013

Old school still rocks!

deep-purple-tour-2010-italia

Deep Purple, the band that has made ​​the history of rock, after two years of absence from the stage, will perform on July 22, 2013  at the Hippodromo delle  Capannelle here in Rome


There is also a lot of waiting for their new album, their first in eight years since the successful “Rapture of the Deep.” The album recordings have brought the band to close the studio for much of the last  year, bringing the painful decision to give up the summer tour of 2012.

The title of the new album has not yet been revealed, but the statements of vocalist Ian Gillan and guitarist Steve Morse suggest a record that will leave a mark. Morse makes it clear that the same could be one of the latest in the band’s studio. The eight years that separate  “Rapture of the Deep” allowed the English education to tap into a multitude of material written in this period. Therefore legitimate to expect a work worthy of the best Deep Purple.
