Jazz It Up !!!

Simone Vimercati - biography

His passion is Jazz, but he loves contaminations: from Jazzdance, Soul, Latin, Funk, Bossanova and Soundtracks to the new sounds of New Jazz, New Bossa ed ElectroJazz.

In 2004 he cooperated with
Lifegate Radio as author and selector for the radioshow Blend of Jazz.

Since 2005 he has been producing
Jazz It Up !!! a selection of rare tracks old and new steeped in Jazz, Soul and new rhythmes that over the years has been played on the web radios Radiopellenera (Milan - Italy), RadioZerogravity (Milan - Italy), Dance & Soul (Singapore), Canora Radio (Madrid - Spain), Gaudeamus (radio of Kaunas University of Technology – Lithuania), Cutradio (Milan – Italy) and on podcast.

He also worked with the
Right Tempo label on the selection for The Platinum Compilation, and he took part to the Possibilities conference as speaker. This event was organised by Gege’ Telesforo’s Groove Master Edition during the MEI 2006 (indipendent labels’ meeting), dedicated to the new music realities, festivals and productions of Italian and European Jazz.
