Friday 31st January - Saturday 1st February
A very welcome return for Italian DJ, producer, guitarist and band leader, Nicola Conte whose shows last January and February were a club highlight! Expect sharp-suited retro jazz with a Bossa Nova flavour and funky edge from Conte, who is renowned for introducing an innovative, uniquely Italian style of acid jazz that incorporates Bossa Nova themes, melodies drawn from Italian film scores of the 1960s and beyond. These very special shows feature the worldwide premiere of Conte’s new album Free Souls and a new edition of his Jazz Combo.
Italian DJ and producer Nicola Conte became famous with his loungey brand of jazz that relies extensively on bossa nova, but is also heavily influenced by the swinging soundtracks of Italian films in the '60s and '70s, plus touches of ethnic music.
