Italian Jazz Live - DANIELA NARDI, Espresso Manifesto (Tue, Nov. 27)

WCTC Meetup invites you to enjoy an evening of world-class Italian jazz tunes beautifully rendered by award-winning musician Daniela Nardi .

'Award-winning Italian-Canadian singer-songwriter Daniela Nardi is following her recently released debut U.S. album Espresso Manifesto—The Songs Of Paolo Conte with her debut U.S. performance, set for Nov. 3 at New York global music club Drom.

She’ll be backed by her husband Ron Davis, a top jazz pianist/composer in Canada, and a band made up mostly of local players, with the focus on the new album—a tribute to legendary Italian singer-composer Conte, who has been likened to Jacques Brel and Tom Waits.

A Toronto-born daughter of Italian immigrants, Nardi’s previous albums, One True Thing (2003) and Rose Tattoo (2008), have featured original material in a jazz-pop vein. As a singer, she was recognized as Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2009 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards.

She sees her Conte album homage as a means of "bridging the gap between being Canadian and raised Italian in Canada," as well as connecting with "the country of my ancestors."

'Espresso. The ultimate symbol of all things Italian. Dark. Rich. Earthy. Complex yet effortless. Elegant yet primal. Hot. When made in the right way, the only way, it is like nothing you have ever known. This is Italy to me. If one person embodies all these elements, it’s Paolo Conte. His music, his lyrics, the experience; as Italian as Espresso. This is my manifesto, my Espresso Manifesto: to create works that proudly display the wonders of those earthy, complex, elegant, primal people, my people - the Italian people.' ~ Daniela Nardi

    Daniela Nardi delivered an intense, yet sophisticated performance before an elated audience at this concert. The award-winning Italian-Canadian singer was accompanied by a band of outstanding performers, including an accordion and a mandolin player, and special guest Fabrizio Bosso from Italy. Magnifico!
