Fall Jazz Series: Ada Rovatti
September 9, 2016 @ 9:00 PM - 10:30 PM$24
Italian native Ada Rovatti started playing saxophone in high school after years of classical piano training. After winning a scholarship from Berklee College of Music in Italy, she divided herself between Boston, where she studied with Joe Viola and George Garzone, and Italy, where she was working in big bands with guest artists. After spending one year in Paris touring Europe and Africa, she moved to New York City. She has performed in various festivals such as: JVC in NYC, Rochester Jazz Festival, IAJE, Detroit Jazz Fest, Montreal Jazz Fest and has appeared and performed with an impressive and diverse list of artists and bands.
In 2003, Ada released her first two CDs as a bandleader with the Elephunk Band and her quartet. Drive magazine raved about this “graceful Italian jazzista” in a CD review of Under the Hat, which critics voted as number one in the “Revelation” category in the Brazilian newspaper, “Tribuna De Imprensa.” In 2006, Ada was nominated by one of the critics in All About Jazz, as one of the Top Ten CDs of the year.
