Update: Torino Jazz Scene
We just returned from the great city of Torino and we are very happy to report that Real Jazz is alive and well in Italy and Europe. Just outside our beautiful hotel is where I discovered Jazz Club Torino, a quaint little joint with a great stage, vibe, food and drinks.
The band that night was called The Vibe Swingers. Their lead singer was Aura Nebiolo, a beautiful Italian woman with an incredible vocal range. Her band included Maurizio Vespa on Vibrafone and Enrico Ciampini on bass - and they were outstanding. Real students of jazz - and of the jazz lifestyle. Their playlist was a mixture of originals and classics with Aura Nebiolo phrasing out English lyrics with a whole lot of Italian soul.
This particular night was Lindy Dance night... and so, of course, we danced. And we watched the young people dance with American style and grace. And a happiness that took us back to a time we long for!
Don’t miss this club if you’re ever in Torino
Here’s a toast to Jazz Music and The Vibe Swingers, Aura and Italian Lifestyle forever!
