The Roman jazz scene gets a little injection of New York attitude tomorrow night with the debut performance by Tess and the Yellow Cabbies at Il Pentagrappolo, near the Colosseum. Led by songstress Tess Amodeo-Vickery, this new jazz trio features a sound evoking that shady, sinister underground of jazz and blues haunted by music’s most notorious divas – from Billie Holiday to Amy Winehouse and everyone in between. Tess is accompanied by the very talented Francesco De Palma on bass and Fabrizio Boffi on piano, and their music is best enjoyed with a selection from Il Pentagrappolo’s list of over 250 wines. And maybe a cheese plate.
