Jazz, after all, is a peculiar genre: drawing life from the heritage of its past great masters, of course, but at the same time constantly reinventing itself and, in this day and age, offering a veritable manifesto about the meaning of the word “change”. Jazz, like a sponge, absorbs everything around it: history, landscapes, the evolution of humanity and social needs. Within this constant change it must make no excuses, but always look towards the future.
Some things never change. The surprise we feel at a live performance, the sense of expectation before a trip, the satisfying flavor of good wine and the emotion of meeting and talking to a great artist. Someone who has sparked emotion in many, and who is virtually incapable of sparing himself. As Break in Jazz opens once more at Milan’s Volvo studio, we took a short break of our own with Enrico Intra.
