Tuesday night with excitement of completely full Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas for the concert tribute to Pink Floyd by Rita Marcotulli Jazz Ensemble.
Pink Floyd in jazz? Some might have asked but what we heard was an unique fusion of known songs as from the early “Astronomy Domine?” and “Set the controls to the hart of the sun”, to the best known “Money”, “Us and them”, “The wall”, “Crazy diamond”, to the less known “Saint Tropez”, “Cyrrus minor”.
Pink Floysd’s songs interwoven with jazz solos of the members of the band went higher than audience’s expectations; and yet as very natural flow of clear electric pieces fused with jazz.
Presented by the Italian Pavilion.
