Le fiabe del jazz, DUKE ELLINGTON – Il giro di Eddy | Jazz Tales, DUKE ELLINGTON – Eddy’s turnaround

The aim of the project is to introduce children to jazz by listening to a tale.

Each album in the series is a monograph and the tale is inspired by a great musician in the history of jazz,

whose personality and style do not emerge through a story with captions but instead via a narration rich in

metaphors and stylistic and ambiance references.

The educational part is structured in a dialogue between the narrator and the musical accompaniment.

The narrator explains in a very simple way the main features of jazz music while the quartet accompanies

him with simple examples. Polyrhythm, improvisation, ensemble music, melody and harmony are only some of the musical concepts that are explained interactively and like a game.
