WOODY ALLEN CONCERT IN FLORENCE, DECEMBER 22
Film Director Woody Allen will be playing at TEATRO COMUNALE in Florence next 22.00 December at 9:00 p.m, accompanied by the famous New Orleans Jazz Band. It will be a rare occasion to see Woody Allen and his band performing live within a tour that will touch a few lucky European cities.
The famous artist with his inseparable clarinet, will be accompanied by the music director Eddy Davis (banjo), Simon Wettenhall (trumpet), Jerry Zigmont (trombone), Conal Fowkes (piano), Greg Cohen (bass) and John Gill (battery).
Everybody in New York knows that every Monday Woody Allen plays in the Carlyle bar, even though it is the Oscar night and he is one of the nominees. During his last stay in Barcelona for the shooting of Vicky-Cristina-Barcelona, those who were having a drink in the Hotel Casa Fuster were luckily surprised by Allen improvising an intimate and exclusive performance at the bar of the hotel.
What began as a distraction has become for Allen almost a second profession, as he keeps playing regularly and doing occasional appearances at various jazz festivals.
In 1998 film director Barbara Kopple shoot an interesting documentary, Wild Man Blues, about the musical vocation of Woody Allen. The film takes its name from a jazz composition sometimes attributed to Jelly Roll Morton and sometimes to Louis Armstrong and recorded by both, among others. Allen’s love of early 20th century New Orleans music is depicted through his 1996 tour in Europe with his band.
For those fortunate travellers being in Florence the on December 22, it will be an excellent chance to see a different Allen from the one we usually see in his comedies, and to enjoy his music in such a magic place as Florence.
December 22. Teatro Comunale di Firenze
