The saxophonist and clarinetist John Surman is a key figure in a generation of European musicians who have greatly widened the international horizons of jazz in the last part of the 20th century. Here he is in a trio, with the Brazilian pianist Nelson Ayres and the Norwegian/American vibraphonist Rob Waring. John Surman is considered a typically English improviser and composer and the echoes of folk music and pastoral settings are significant features  of his music, in famous albums like The Road to Saint Ives or Saltash Bells. However, he can also boast a long list of work with musicians from other countries and different cultures – all linked by an invisible thread like a shared feeling for melody, transcending obvious idioms. Surman met Nelson Ayres – who Brazilian jazz aficionados know for his work with Airto Moreira, Milton Nascimento and Banda Pau Brasil – during a tour in South America. It was in Oslo that he met the vibraphonist Rob Waring, and appreciated his talent.



Regina Palace Hotel

Overlooking the shores of Lake Maggiore, in the centre of Stresa and directly facing the Borromean Islands, the Regina Palace Hotel represents a fine example of prestige both in the hotel world and historically speaking. The four-star Regina Palace hotel that opened in 1908, still preserves its fin de siècle fascination, even though it has a renewed appearance as a result of a meticulous, albeit conservative refurbishment programme. The unique combination of charm and modernity will render a stay in one of the 214 rooms or suites – all furnished with period pieces and equipped with every facility – totally unforgettable.
