Summer Jazz Cycle Tour at the church in Leegkerk

Concert Giuseppe Doronzo Ava

On Saturday 26 August the Summer Jazz Cycle Tour gets underway again. Get on your bike and enjoy unique concerts at unique venues. The church in Leegkerk is one of them.

Intimate jazz concerts
Once again the last Saturday in August marks the start of the Summer Jazz Cycle Tour. This cycling tour combines cycling through Groningen’s lovely Reitdiep Valley with listening to intimate jazz concerts in medieval churches and farmers' barns. Jazz buffs can choose from one of six different routes and a programme featuring contemporary jazz and improvisational music from at home and abroad. At 12.30 in the afternoon Giuseppe Doronzo and the Ava Trio will perform at the church in Leegkerk.

Giuseppe Doronzo
Baritone saxophonist Giuseppe Doronzo has performed at the cycle tour several times, first with the talented Michael Moore Pool and later with the experimental quartet Falga. And something with some Swiss musicians in between. Now he’s part of the Ava trio, playing lively Mediterranean rhythms with bass player Esat Ekincioglu (Kuhn Fu) and percussionist Pino Basile. Melancholy sounds are fertile ground for a skillful improviser like Giuseppe Doronzo. Native Italian Pino Basile will take along a few typically Italian instruments, including the cupa cupa, a kind of friction drum.
