The magic of jazz is coming to Rome on August 29th, as Tatiana Eva-Marie & Avalon will be performing a special concerto of Gypsy Jazz in the Italian capital city. Presented by I Suoni delle Dolomiti, a major music festival for the Autonomous Province of Trento, the concert will be held at theSuggesta in the heart of Rome at 21:00. The band will evoke the memory of Django Reinhardt, the influential French Gypsy Jazz guitarist who was born on August 28th, 1910 and whose music continues to inspire many today.
