si incontrano in una stanza e iniziano a vibrare a ritmo di swing, sul filo di melodie intramontabili e di coinvolgenti improvvisazioni.
Nasce così il Blue Valentine Jazz Trio, composto da musicisti provenienti da percorsi diversi, ma accomunati dalla passione per il jazz e la canzone d’autore.
Uniti dal desiderio di conciliare creatività e ironia, raffinatezza e spontaneità, i componenti del gruppo creano ben presto un sound personale ed elegante, e affiancano agli standard jazz una sorprendente selezione di brani pop, rock e soul reinterpretati in chiave swing.
In questo sito potrete sapere tutto quello che riguarda i progetti del Blue Valentine Jazz Trio, oltre che scoprire a chi appartengono le dita che corrono sugli ottantotto tasti, le mani che lasciano vibrare le quattro corde, e la voce intorno a cui ruotano le sofisticate armonie e i coinvolgenti ritmi creati dagli strumenti.
VISIT ASCONA-LOCARNO The ideal destination for your holiday break
The Swiss part of Lake Maggiore, surrounded by the towns Locarno, Ascona, Brissago and further small villages, prides itself on its numerous and extraordinary nature beauty spots.
IT’S BLOOMING SEASON!
Thanks to the enchanting flowers and plants from all 5 continents, the Botanical Garden on the Brissago Islands is of major importance. Both its mediterranean climate and position in the middle of the lake offer the ideal grounds for over 1’700 different plants, many of which are unique in Switzerland.
Near the lakeshore and the centre of Locarno lies another extraordinary beauty: theCamellia Park with over 900 species of this beautiful flower, some of which very rare. Open all year round, the park hosts the annual camellia exhibition at the beginning of every Spring season. Save the date for the 2015 edition: from March 25th to 29th!
Spring bloom is shown at its best on the other side of the lake, as well: in fact, thebotanical park of Gambarogno, located on a hill between Piazzogna and Vairano, hosts the world’s largest collection of magnolias (approx. 450). Last but not least, a guided tour through the Bolle di Magadino (wetlands), a natural reservoir of national importance and also a refuge for numerous animal and plant species.
Train, cable car or boat? It’s all there! The modern cable car in Orselina – located just above the stunning monastery of Madonna del Sasso– allows you to reach Cardada (134m above sea level) in just a few minutes and from there the chairlift takes you up to Cimetta (1670m elevation). What awaits you here is a breathtaking view on the Lake Maggiore and the surrounding peaks, as well as the landscape promontory, the play path and the geological observatory.
The Centovalli Railway offers the shortest and most beautiful connection between Lake Maggiore, the French speaking part of Switzerland and Berne, the capital of Switzerland. This panoramic train journey through the picturesque “One Hundred Valleys”, passing deep gorges and crevices with glittering cascading waterfalls, travels across colourful alpine meadows, over numerous bridges, and through vineyards and forests of chestnut trees.
From the valley to the lake: the boats of Navigazione Lago Maggiore will let you discover the many facets of the lake region: characteristic villages with a rich history and living traditions; lively towns, animated with famous events; beautifully manicured parks and gardens; small beaches where you can enjoy a swim in the refreshing lake waters.
Ascona-Locarno is a true playground for kids of all ages! Many activities and attractions dedicated to kids are there to tempt you: the Falconry in Locarno, a treasure hunt on the Brissago Islands, Lido Locarno beach, Gordola Parco Avventura (Adventure Park) and why not a fun stay at one of our selected campsites?
