Umbria Jazz 2009- not just jazz

Umbria Jazz is on. Actually it started a week ago but I forgot to tell you. Sunday is the last day.
The bodacious event is held every year in Perugia and is a treat for music lovers. This year will also feature, among many, many others, Burt Bacharach, Simply Red, Steely Dan, and Paolo Conte.

Learn more at the official site, where you can also get tickets. There's another site set up by the sponsor, Hag coffee (why am I thinking that this is an odd sponsor? Somehow I don't think jazz and rock fans are into decaf...)

In the photo, local boy (from Chelsea) Chick Corea, also present.
