Garda Jazz Festival - Jelly Roll Plays Morton
International Jazz concerts in different suggestive places

In memory of Elio Bresciani, the companions of the “Circolo amici del Jazz rivani” anno 1957

Helga Plankensteiner - Saxophone, vocals
Achille Succi - Clarinet
Glauco Benedetti - Tuba
Michael Lösch - Piano
Marco Soldà - Drums

Jelly Roll Morton lives on! Helga Plankensteiner's original project explores compositions by the great pioneer and self-proclaimed “inventor of jazz", and is so much more than a tribute act. Plankensteiner does so with an original three-wind, dark-timbre quintet (featuring a baritone sax, bass clarinet, and tuba), leaving space between neat melodic-rhythmic-harmonic twists and turns for free improvisation.

The quintet dedicates itself to creating dynamic, eclectic music that entertains musicians and audience members alike. Each song begins in a subtle and enveloping key, before slowly becoming skilfully intertwined with exquisite, agile arrangements.
