Jazz Poetry Month: Claudio Cojaniz “Orfani”

May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

With the health, well-being, and comfort of all as our top priorities, City of Asylum requires that our staff, artists, and all those attending an event be fully vaccinated. Please click here to learn more about our Covid 19 policies.

 

Master jazz pianist Claudio Cojaniz (Italy) returns to Pittsburgh with his trio and a brand new album of entirely original music.  

Claudio is a world-renowned musician and a dear friend of City of Asylum. He first performed in Jazz Poetry 2018 to two evenings of sold-out and awed crowds. Claudio was also our most popular pandemic virtual concert, performing from his home near Naples to a gathered Pittsburgh crowd who needed some uplifting tunes. 

We are thrilled Claudio returns to Pittsburgh live for JPM 2022 for two stellar performances. 

The first evening features the US premiere of Claudio’s 2021 album “Orphans.” In this album Claudio sought to mentor and steward the next generation of Italy’s jazz stars, musicians who accompany him to Pittsburgh. Their album is inspired by the tragedies and triumphs of global migration. It is infused with world music sounds, influenced by the Balkan folk music of Claudio’s Serbian grandfather, as well as Claudio’s mastery of the blues.

The album is lyrical and concise with delicate melodies, and is sure to be an excellent evening of music.
