In essence, Jazz!

The 7th edition of the Torino Jazz Festival takes place from Friday, April 26 to Saturday, May 4.
The program features international artists and original productions by the best local jazz musicians. It is a surprise-filled rundown of big-name artists like Joshua Redman, Fred Frith, Enrico Pieranunzi, Jon Balke, Randy Brecker, Bugge Wesseltoft, Kyle Eastwood, Stefano Di Battista, Eivind Aarset, John Paul Jones, Michel Portal, Arto Tuncboyaciyan, Ernst Reijseger, Jim Black, Sidsel Endresen, Deborah Carter, Don Menza, Flavio Boltro and Enrico Rava, who’ll be playing in concert halls and clubs, where the spirit of jazz at its most authentic mixes it up with a host of all-new lineups and alternative performances. The 2019 edition also sees an expanded schedule of outdoor performances, promising a festival atmosphere bounding through the streets of the city. For the second year running, the TJF presents evening performances at OGR Torino – the city’s old railroad mechanical services depot, today a symbol of urban transformation that has become a vital crossroads for contemporary culture in a city projected on an international level.
The 2019 TJF  serves up 12 concerts at popular prices, with tickets from €5 to €12 and 70 free-admission shows, plus 40 free-admission Jazz Blitz shows
