THE JAZZING 8 – vol 1 (Temps Record, 2018) of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band is the sample of the work done during the year 2017, in different contexts: Sat, Omega room, Taller de Músics, Jamboree room, it has been a year very fruitful and we have incorporated many new arrangements, as always, looking for new challenges and discovering new soloists, which based on listening to a lot of music and working individually and collectively, achieve wonderful results. This new work, everything and that includes many vocal themes, there are also many instrumentals where the increasingly numerous soloists of the orchestra have their opportunity to share their creativity, their ability to generate their own discourse.
I am very happy and satisfied with the results achieved and I now face the year 2018 with a lot of enthusiasm, with new challenges and with the joy of seeing how each and every one of the musicians that are part of this project are growing musically in an incredible way and what for me is also very important, in a positive way, with a lot of enthusiasm and making this music that we call jazz, a big part of his life, how can it be otherwise because being a jazz musician is a way of feeling and to live life. As George Gershwin said
LIFE IS VERY SIMILAR TO JAZZ, IT IS BETTER WHEN IMPROVED
yes ,,,, that’s how I feel, but improvisation based on rigor, on work, on involvement, on knowledge, on happiness, on love for the well-done, on respect,
and BOTHER IF … jazz, that wonderful music
