The quartet founded by American sax player Joe Lovano in 2014 opens Sibafest with a powerful and energetic serving of jazz.

The second half of the concert is taken up by the Sibis Alumni Big Band with added strings, conducted by composer and arranger Vince Mendoza and with Joe Lovano and trumpet player Tim Hagans as soloists. Their programme features favourite tunes from the scores to the films The Summer of ’42, Henry the V, L’ascenseur pour l’échafaud, The Subterraneans, Death Wish, Chinatown, A Streetcar Named Desire and Once Upon a Time in the West.
