July 10 - Umbria, Italy

Ladies! Umbria Jazz

"Ladies! Si potrebbe considerare un manifesto programmatico della affermazione delle donne e della loro voglia di declinare al femminile il mondo del jazz. La direzione artistica di Ladies! è di Renee Rosnes, pianista e arrangiatrice canadese che ha suonato con Joe Henderson , JJ Johnson e James Moody ma che ha conosciuto la definita consacrazione nel quartetto di Wayne Shorter. Cecile McLorin Salvant canta, Anat Cohen suona il clarinetto e Melissa Aldana, cilena, il sassofono. Queste tre artiste sono state già ascoltate a Umbria Jazz, e Cecile e Melissa hanno in comune anche l' essere passate da vincitrici per il prestigioso concorso del Thelonious Monk Institute. La formazione comprende anche Ingrid Jensen alla tromba, con una sezione ritmica formata da Noriko Ueda, contrabbasso, e Allison Miller, batteria."

July 15 - Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain

"Este supergrupo de jazz compuesto únicamente por mujeres se presentó el Día Internacional de la Mujer de 2016 en el Philarmonie de París. “Reclamar la igualdad en el jazz, como en todo lo demás, no tiene nada de radical. ¡Es incluso lo menos importante!”, reivindica Cécile McLorin Salvant, la voz de este proyecto y que está considerada como la mejor cantante de jazz surgida en la última década. A Cécile, que clausuró la 40 edición del Festival de Jazz de Vitoria-Gasteiz, le acompañan otras seis mujeres para completar un septeto all stars, cosmopolita y transgerenacional que interpreta los estándares de jazz, aprovechando la rica paleta de influencias de sus músicos.

La dirección musical del proyecto corre a cargo de una de las mejores pianistas y compositoras de su generación: la canadiense Renee Rosnes. La clarinetista Anat Cohen se gana al público de todo el mundo con su expresivo virtuosismo y su encantadora presencia en el escenario. A pesar su juventud, la saxofonista chilena Melissa Aldana expresa un sonido maduro con la confianza basada en maestros como Dexter Gordon o Sonny Rollins. Ingrid Jensen está considerada una de las mejores trompetistas del panorama actual por su fuerte sentido lírico que se aúna con una formidable técnica. Noriko Ueda nació en Japón, donde comenzó a estudiar piano, pero a los 18 años se interesó por el contrabajo, que ahora es su instrumento principal. El año pasado lanzó su primer álbum como líder de un trío, titulado Debut. Batería, compositora y profesora, Allison Miller aborda sus profundas raíces en la improvisación como un vehículo para explorar toda la música."
