Jazz Focus Big Band

The Band

The Jazz Focus bigband is renewed! The award-winning youth big band is led by Lorenzo Mignacca since september 2019, who is continuing the mission of the ‘godfather of Dutch Jazz’, Peter Guidi. The 18-person big band is bursting with musical talent and really brings the jazz to life. With Peter Guidi, the Jazz Focus performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival, de Amsterdam Uitmarkt, in the Concertgebouw, and even at festivals in San Sebastian and Budapest. And now, with their beautiful sound, impressive notes, and fascinating solos, the Jazz Focus big band led by Lorenzo Mignacca performed at the Prinses Christina Jazz Concours after only three months.

To top it off, the band even conquered the first prize! The repertoire of the band is full of influences ranging from Thad Jones, Cole Porter, Buddy Rich, Mancini and Sammy Nestico to the more modern jazz of Gordon Goodwin and Michael Bublé.
