Dusko Goykovich Quintet @ Piazza Valdo Fusi

Dusko Goykovich Quintet @ Piazza Valdo Fusi

Event type: Concert

Date: 2007-09-13


Unlike our our last foray into the Torino music scene, the jazz that we heard last night was recognisable as such.

After our fitting-in-with-the-locals-8pm-start evening meal (some rather delicious meatballs in tomato sauce with tagliolini) we wandered the couple of blocks to Piazzale Valdo Fusi. Best known as one of the many underground car parks in Turin, it's a fairly modern construction with the sides sloping, bowl-like, to a flat area in the centre where a part-log-cabin, part-breeze-block building is situated. There are a couple of gentle, stepped waterfalls running down the slopes although for the past couple of weeks they've been dry; and one side features a wall with a big graffiti-style mural and a small inset bar.

Against this wall, and next to the bar was were the band set up. When we arrived the few tables on the grass nearest the band were full, so we joined other spectators and sat on one of the stone slabs skirting the piazza and got ourselves a drink from the bar.

The band were good. I only recognised one number - Summertime - but enjoyed listening to all that they played. The piazza seems a good venue as the music echoes back off the surrounding buildings, providing an added depth to the sound.

There are further events at the piazza on the next two Thursdays, so hopefully we'll make it along. See the Jazz Club Torino website for more details.
