Ticinum is the latin name of the river which flows through Pavia, medieval town near Milan where the Band was founded in 1985.

T
he group, besides its long and regular activity in the most important jazz-clubs in Italy, keeps on attending with constant success the major national and international concerts and festivals like the various tournées in the Scandinavian Countries, all over Europe, in Morocco and Guadeloupe (Caribbean Sea).

A special mention should be also made as regards the twelve years of concerts at the "Caveau de la Huchette" in Paris, very old jazz-club near "Notre Dame" where many world-famous jazzmen have been playing since the period of the postwar existentialism.

B
esides that, the "Ticinum" performed for weekly periods in many Holiday Villages of "Valtur", a well-known Italian tour operator and aboard cruise-ships of "Costa Crociere" in the Mediterranean Sea as far as Turkey and up to the extreme north of Europe.

Now, let us talk about the style of the "Ticinum Jazz Band": its musical area is the one of the "Classical Jazz" of the years 1925/1935, golden age of the Traditional Jazz in America (New Orleans, Dixieland and Chicago styles).

T
he Band, well-known for its strong sense of rhythm, stands out especially thanks to its "drive" which is the reason of the popular consent obtained everywhere.
Although born as a Dixieland Band, the "Ticinum" developed its style and went into a more advanced and swinging kind of music, maintaining anyway its deep emotional link with the Dixieland of its origins.

T
o conclude this description, here are the names of the musicians of the Band who, owing to their long activity in the world of jazz, may be already known to many people:
