Vail Jazz Winter Series: Diego Figueiredo with Chiara Izzi
February 2, 201720 Vail Road, Vail, CO
Brazilian guitarist Diego Figueiredo is a returning favorite at Vail Jazz, having wowed audiences last summer at the 2016 Vail Jazz Party. Diego fuses jazz, bossa nova and classical music, blending his virtuosic technique with an infectious interpretation of standards from the Brazilian and American Songbooks. He will be joined by award winning Italian singer and songwriter Chiara Izzi, “a talent to be heard, admired and anticipated” (Jazz Times). This year’s lineup boasts swinging bands, stunning vocalists, and exciting musical pairings, all hosted in a beautiful new venue: the terrace at Ludwig’s. Ludwig’s terrace at the Sonnenalp hotel will transform into an elegant alpine jazz club, complete with dinner service.
