Na Braču, najvećem hrvatskom otoku maslina i mramora leži malo, pitomo i kao u bajci uspavano naselje Sutivan. To je jedno mirno, prekrasno mjesto koje svim putnicima vrlo gostoljubivo nudi uživanje u otkrivanju njegovih draži. U Sutivanu nema gužve, brzine i buke, pa posjetitelji zahvaljujući tome mogu okusiti stvarni, autentični okus, miris i kolorit Dalmacije odnosno njene kuhinje i idiličnog lokalnog života. Prirodna ljubaznost, gostoljubivost i stoljetna marljivost stanovništva učinili su od ovoga mjesta oazu mira i spokoja. Zbog toga se Stivanjani neizmjerno raduju svakom svom gostu i doživljavaju ga kao iskrenog prijatelja. Dobrodošli u netaknuti dragulj otoka Brača – Stivan! Sutivan je proteklih kroz svoja „kulturna ljeta“ bio domaćin mnogim hrvatskim i stranim jazz glazbenicima. Ambient Kavanjinovih dvora i sutivanske rive postao je tako nesvakidašnja pozornica gdje su posjetitelji mogli u blizini mora i usidrenih brodova uživati u fenomenalnim glazbenim izvedbama. Dobra energija koja se stvarala na tim događanjima potakla nas je da oformimo i jedan mali otočki jazz festival na kojem bi jazz zaljubljenici mogli uživat u suncu, moru i izvrsnoj glazbi.

XY Quartet Nicola Fazzini: alto sax Alessandro Fedrigo: bass guitar Saverio Tasca: vibes Luca Colussi: drums Svakako se može smatrati reprezentativnim bendom novog talijanskog svijeta jazza. Quartet je postigao brojna priznanja i kritike javnosti, a najpoznatiji talijanski magazin Musica Jazz je u 2014. i 2017. godini nagradio XY Quartet kao drugu najbolju talijansku jazz grupu. XY Quartet can be considered by all means a representative band of the new Italian Jazz world. The group, established in 2011, looks back upon 3 CD (Idea F, XY, Orbite printed by nusica.org), concerts by many of the major Italian Festivals and a growing artistic activity abroad. The band has achieved numerous critical and public acclaims, has been rewarded as second best Italian group by Musica Jazz magazine in 2014 and 2017 and to its credit lists also interviews with specialised periodicals and a good number of positive reviews in Italy and abroad. XY Quartet stands out live for its strenght and expressive effectiveness with which is able to elaborate musical, originals and innovative, materials maintaining a constant balance between improvisation and composition. Various influences mark the band music: jazz, contemporary, minimalism, electronic, prog, and each of these elements seem to merge into a peculiar and unique language that puts the band on the international spotlight. Moved by different interests such as musical research but also science fiction, architecture and literature, the Nicola Fazzini and Alessandro Fedrigo band leaders love to picture their music as an inspiration and creation conceived by the imaginary character Jon Futuru. Jon, the fruit of Alessandro Fedrigo’s vivid imagination, lives in the outer space of a long gone time. This entrangement (alienation) game is nothing but a reflection on the musical language itself, on the different materials that make it up and on the meaning they have in our society. The elements of the musical language are taken away from their historical, geographical, social context and projected into another dimension that becomes an hypothetical extraterrestrial future. During the years XY Quartet has realized different live experiences, one of which is the remarkable multimedia project in collaboration with the video artist Claudio Sichel , not to mention a performance with the science communicator Dario Kubler, both of them dedicated on the theme of the first space explorers. XY Quartet has also taken part in some of the most important Jazz Festivals in Italy and around the world and here a short list only to remember some of them in Italy : Umbria Jazz Winter, Novara Jazz, Centro d’Arte Padova, Ivrea Jazz Festival, Una striscia di terra feconda in Roma, Nel gioco del jazz in Bari,Jazz, Jazz and Wine of peace in Cormons, Ferrara Jazz Club, Casa del Jazz in Rome; and abroad XY Quartet has toures in Switzerland, Austria, Poland, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Estonia, Finnland and Hungary.
