For one night only on Thursday, October 19, the Nicola Tariello Quintet will perform three sets from “Sotto le Stelle del Jazz” (“Under the Stars of Jazz”) at The Sheraton Grand Sukhumvit’s The Living Room. The sets start at 9, 10 and 11pm respectively.

Tariello is a celebrated Italian trumpet player who has cooperated with such well-known artists as Gilberto Gil, Roberto Gatto and Peter Cincotti. In 2016, he embarked on a personal project dedicated to the music of Italian singer, pianist and composer, Paolo Conte, which he has performed to critical acclaim at the Tolfa Jazz Festival, Atina Jazz, and in the Sala Petrassi at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.

“Under the Stars of Jazz” is the trumpeter’s evocative interpretation of Conte’s work. From the jazz greats of the past and with his own original arrangements, Tarielllo and his quintet take listeners on an engaging journey from the 20s, an innovative age which gave birth to the fathers of jazz who inspired Conte, through to the experimental 60s. Tariello pays homage not only to Conte but also Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis.
