SaxPack

The Sax Pack 10th Anniversary Tour featuring Jeff Kashiwa, Steve Cole and Kim Waters.

The idea of The Sax Pack originated in 2004 with saxophonist Jeff Kashiwa after he saw a movie about the “Rat Pack,” a group of legendary entertainers led by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr.

Inspired by their showmanship and camaraderie, Kashiwa came up with the name The Sax Pack and called on some of his saxophone peers and started a new group that would feature the instrument, as well as their collective musical passion for jazz, funk and R&B.

The Sax Pack has released two CDs, “The Sax Pack” (2008) and “The Pack is Back” (2009) on Shanachie Records.

The Sax Pack features Jeff Kashiwa, Steve Cole & Kim Waters. Along with being cohesive musically, the trio share a unique and comical camaraderie on stage.

Backed by a tight rhythm section, the talented trio combine their life-long love of music and their passion for performance, to make an impact on audiences that love music as much as they do.

Committed to sharing the excitement, spontaneity and creative energy that flows between them on stage, The Sax Pack inspires an audience far beyond the duration of a show.

The well-known saxophonists are excited to create a show that combines their individual styles and diverse backgrounds for a fresh approach to the music that inspired them all to become musicians: jazz.

Show: $40
Dinner & Show $80
Show Time: 8 & 10 p.m.

With his CD release ‘Silver Soul’ saxophone superstar Kim Waters celebrated his 25th year as a recording artist last year. Silver Soul is Kim’s 20 solo album and features amongst others his wife, vocalist Dana Pope, and his daughter Kayla on keyboards. His latest release follows 16 Top 10 and 14 #1 singles, 4 #1 CDs and many millions of album unit sales. A Baltimore native from a musical family, Kim’s primary influences were jazz icons like Duke Ellington, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, and Cannonball Adderley. His first instrument – at age 8 – was the violin (‘That didn’t go over well with the fellas’, says Waters) and within five years he found his true calling on the alto and soprano saxophones. Soon after, Kim organized his first professional band with his brothers, James and Eric, and his hometown friend Cyrus Chestnut. Subsequently, Waters shared stages with many of the best including Ray Charles, Al Green, Phyllis Hyman and Grover Washington, Jr. to name a very few. Kim now makes his home in the Austin, Texas area and, when he’s frequently on the road, at the important music venues throughout the world. His music is characterized by distinctive, soul-imbued melodies and seductive grooves.

Ciao Smooth Jazz-Lovers all over the world,

Our festival family has grown again. In the new year, the altogether 13th edition of our SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL series takes us to a new place in a new country – a country known for good food, good wine, fashion, summer, sun, sunshine – a country known for LA DOLCE VITA: Italy.

The 3rd in the league of our annual festivals is from now on going to take place there, more precisely at the picturesque Lake Maggiore. The second largest lake in Italy is located in the wine region of Piemonte and is just within a stone’s throw of Lake Como, where amongst others George Clooney owns a house. Venue for our festival is the Grand Hotel Dino in Baveno. The exclusive bathing and holiday resort Baveno, which is situated about 45 minutes north of the fashion metropolis Milan, is surrounded by picturesque mountains. It has retained the glamour of the 60s and the charm of Art Nouveau. The hotel itself is nestled in a beautiful natural setting with century-old trees in the parks, pools, and the breathtaking panorama of the Borromean Islands. The spacious complex extends directly to the lake shore and has a private boat jetty.

On stage, we welcome some of the biggest and most successful international stars of the Contemporary and Smooth Jazz scene:

KEIKO MATSUI MINDI ABAIR KIM WATERS MARC ANTOINE BRIAN SIMPSON JULIAN VAUGHN ROCCO VENTRELLA RENATO FALASCHI ILARIA DE ROBERTIS GIANNI VANCINI

The live concerts take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening and on Sunday forenoon until afternoon.

The official sale starts on April 10, 2015 in our online-shop: www.smoothjazzshop.eu/italy.
