Fano Jazz by the Sea 1993-1996

Fano Jazz By The Sea 1993

After the separation from the Umbria Jazz Association, in 1993 the festival in Fano reborn as Fano Jazz By The Sea, and it does so under the artistic direction of Adriano Mazzoletti, music critic.

The 1993 edition of the festival is presented with a duration of 20 days, taking the title of the longest in Europe, characterized by three appointments every day, with different and characteristic locations in the city on the seafront. The ’93 festival is made unique by an important presence of Italian musicians and the ability to access for free most of the concerts.

In the same year Fano Jazz Club was born on the wave of enthusiasm for the success of that year’s event. It will be an association of Fano musicians, sole representative of the administration of the city of the riviera for the management of the Jazz Music Festival.

Fano Jazz By The Sea 1994

Substantially similar to the 1993 edition, the 1994 festival is presented. Up to 25 days of music still increase. The ’94 edition is reminiscent of an extraordinary performance by Lionel Hampton and The Golden Men of Jazz. It will also be the last edition under the artistic direction of Adriano Mazzoletti.

Fano Jazz By The Sea 1995

The 1995 edition marks the definitive downsizing of the duration of the festival, which goes from the 25 days of the ’94 edition to 8 days. This setting will drastically change the connotation of the Festival, until then perceived externally as a series of concerts unrelated to each other. The 1995 edition, therefore, marks the beginning of Fano Jazz By The Sea as a real cultural project.

Among the most significant presences: Milton Jackson, Gary Burton and Lew Tabackin, identifying artists of a jazz that we could define “historical”. James Carter, David Sanchez and Wallace Roney, for jazz seen in a more modern way. Billy Cobham and Super Soul Session tell jazz music in its most spectacular key to music.

The 1995 edition presents a particularity: a review of films about jazz to complete the event.

Locations: Corte Malatestiana, Centro di aggregazione giovanile S. Arcangelo, Anfiteatro Rastatt, Cavea Lido, Ex Monastero Benedettine, Largo Arco D’Augusto.

Artists: GARY BURTON – MILTON JACKSON – JAMES CARTER – DAVID SANCHEZ

Fano Jazz By The Sea 1996

1996 is the year of the consolidation of the artistic project. It is definitely decided to move from a completely free Festival to paid concerts. Confirmed the duration, 8 days, with three appointments every day.

The Festival of ’96 boasts charismatic foreign presences such as McCoy Tyner, Bill Frisell, Michael Brecker and Benny Golson, but equally prestigious and quality Italian artists: Enrico Rava, Paolo Fresu, Rosario Giuliani, Roberto Gatto.

Peculiarity of the 1996 edition of Fano Jazz By The Sea is the collateral activity of the Jazz Club, where at midnight the musicians meet for endless and exciting jam sessions until the following morning.
