Cartel Jazz Eñe 2021_BUENO deff

The selected groups are the Ariel Brínguez Quintet, Caminero Quintet, Chano Domínguez Trío, Daniel García Trio, Smack Dab, Sumrrá, Alba Careta Group and Manolo y Curra

The SGAE Foundation, in collaboration with the Donostia/San Sebastian City Council, Donostia Kultura and the 56th San Sebastian Jazz Festival, has organised the VII edition of JazzEñe, an initiative aiming to internationalise Spanish Jazz scheduled to run from July 22 to 25 in San Sebastian, in the framework of the 56th Jazzaldia. Over four days, the institution will organise a total of eight 45-minute showcase concerts featuring some of today’s most representative Spanish groups in the genre: Ariel Bríngez Quintet, Caminero Quintet, Chano Domínguez Trío, Daniel García Trío, Smack Dab, Sumrrá, Alba Careta Group and Manolo y Curra. The groups have been selected from a total of 252 applications received in response to the call for submissions issued by the SGAE Foundation to its members in the scope of Ibero-America. A committee made up of José Miguel Carmona, institutional music director at the SGAE Foundation; Javier Estrella, director of JazzEñe; Miguel Martín, director of Jazzaldia; José Franciso Tapiz, director of Tomajazz and Lara Vizuete, author and Jazz singer participant in JazzEñe2018, had the task of selecting the eight artistic proposals. Together with the audience, and invited by the SGAE Foundation, JazzEñe2021 will enjoy the presence of representatives of different European Jazz festivals and promotors interested in discovering the reality of the genre in Spain. As a complement to the concerts, all participants will have the opportunity to explain and discuss their proposals with the international guests in the endeavour to attain international collaboration agreements enabling them to take their work beyond our borders.  

Eight concerts over four days, in matinée sessions

JazzEñe2021 will offer a total of 8 concerts in four double matinée sessions (12:30pm). The concerts will be held at the Teatro Victoria Eugenia and the tickets will go on sale shortly. The event will kick off on July 22 at 12:30 with the Ariel Brínguez Quintet, who will present Nostalgia Cubana, a journey to the Cuban soundscapes of the 50s paying tribute to the forms cultivated by great artists including Bola de Nieve, José Antonio Méndez, Eliseo Grenet, Cachaíto López and Juanito Márquez, among others. An hour later, in the second session, it will be the turn of the Caminero Quintet, an ensemble headed by Pablo Martín Caminero combining Jazz and flamenco. Pablo touches down in JazzEñe2021 with his latest work, Bost, in which he revisits the traditional flamenco palos such as granaína, siguiriya, bulería or soleá from his particular point of view. The following day, on Friday July 23, the Daniel García Trío will give a live performance of their latest and energetic Travesuras, which has taken them to some of the biggest European stages. Daniel García Diego, Reinier “El Negrón” and Michael Olivera make up one of the strongest and most original European Jazz trios. The event will end at 13:30 with the live show by the Chano Domínguez Trío, who will perform Chumbulum, an album in which they recover hitherto unheard-of compositions never recorded before while offering original pieces created during the lockdown. Rounding off the ensemble are Horacio Fumero, Argentine bassist and regular collaborator of Tete Montoliu and Gato Barbieri, and the multi-talented David Xirgú on the drums, the perfect bill to convey the beauty and charm of this unique Spanish Jazz mixture. Having become one of the most consolidated projects on the Catalan Jazz scene, Smack Dab will open the third day (July 24) of JazzEñe2021. Here, the quintet featuring Joan Casares, Oriol Vallès, Lluc Casares, Jöel González and Pau Sala builds a space from which to review their careers bestride the tradition of Jazz and Afro-American music from collective freedom and improvisation. The day will end with the proposal of the Galician trio, Sumrrá, who, after a career of 21 years, present their seventh studio album: Sumrrá 7 Visións. Pianist Manuel Gutiérrez, bassist Xacobe Martínez Antelo and drummer L.A.R. Legido reflect with seven powerful and lucid points of view on the present time, where we come from and where we’re going. The JazzEñe2021 will be brought to an end on July 25 by the last two groups: the Alba Careta Group and the duo Javier Galiana and María La Mónica: Manolo y Curra. Alba Careta Group returns at the head of one of the Catalan Jazz scene’s most promising bands, with Alades, her second album, with which she displays the experiences of her recent years studying the trumpet in Amsterdam, subtly and with an organic and emotional language that confirms her place as one of the leading lights of contemporary Spanish Jazz. This seventh edition will finally be brought to a close by Manolo y Curra, a project born from the fusion between the stage art of the pianist Javier Galiana and the singer from Chiclana, María ‘La Mónica’, conceived almost like a play for the theatre, in an improvisation planned down to the very last detail.   logo fundación sgae     [post_title] => THE 8 ARTISTS TO PARTICIPATE IN "JAZZEÑE 2021" HAVE NOW BEEN SELECTED [post_excerpt] => The selected groups are the Ariel Brínguez Quintet, Caminero Quintet, Chano Domínguez Trío, Daniel García Trio, Smack Dab, Sumrrá, Alba Careta Group and Manolo y Curra [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => the-8-artists-to-participate-in-jazzene-2021-have-now-been-selected [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2021-05-24 12:12:14 [post_modified_gmt] => 2021-05-24 10:12:14 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://jazzaldia.eus/?p=25760 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [2] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 25524 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2021-05-05 13:24:49 [post_date_gmt] => 2021-05-05 11:24:49 [post_content] => froga1

This is a time for prudence; but it is also a time to maintain the cultural offer, to meet with social distancing, precaution and a mask, so that we can enjoy music. We present the 56th San Sebastian Jazz Festival. With all sorts of caveats. We don’t know how many people will be able to attend the concerts or at what time; nor do we know if we’ll be able to move around freely. We’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out. The artists we mention below have confirmed their desire to come to the 56th Jazzaldia. That’s why, with excitement, we give you their names; so that you can start getting used to the idea. This will be a Festival of female voices: the great Cécile McLorin Salvant; Noa, in collaboration with the pianist from San Sebastian, Iñaki Salvador; Buika, sweet and sensual; Arlo Parks, London’s new sensation; the Cuban Aymée Nuviola; and, of course, Sílvia Pérez Cruz, with the Farsa Circus Band. It will also be a Festival of pianists; to that of the aforementioned Iñaki Salvador we must add further names: the Italians Franco D’Andrea, glorious doyen of transalpine musicians, and Giovanni Guidi, budding star of European jazz; the genius Brad Mehldau; the indispensable and sensational Kenny Barron; Gonzalo Rubalcaba, supreme Caribbean virtuoso; Poland’s Marcin Masecki, versatile and unpredictable; and Marco Mezquida, with his new project, another step forward in his irrepressible rise to musical stardom. Dave Douglas, dexterous trumpet player; the Ethiopian vibraphonist and percussionist Mulatu Astatke; the distinguished bass player Dave Holland; the sax player Jean Toussaint, disciple of the Jazz Messengers’ Blakey School of Music; the sax player Eric Seva, with a fantastic homage to the album Summit in which Gerry Mulligan and Astor Piazzolla merged their sounds and ideas; the surprising flute player Naïssam Jalal and the guitarist Bill Frisell are among the other musicians who have promised to attend and participate in the coming 56th Jazzaldia. We will also have a large number of Spanish musicians: a short while ago we published a list of 19 groups chosen following the selection processes to have run in recent months; said groups will be joined by the maestro Jorge Pardo, accompanied by Niño Josele, in a nod to the memory of Chick Corea; La Locomotora Negra, doyen of Catalan jazz ensembles, on its farewell tour; and the 8 groups selected to participate in JazzEñe. We hope that the evolution of the disease and its consequences will allow the programme to go ahead. Take care of yourself so that we can bring the damned figures down, put an end to the virus once and for all and get down to enjoying this programme.   Miguel Martín Director of the San Sebastian Jazz Festival     [post_title] => Brad Mehldau, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Noa, Bill Frisell, Mulatu Astatke, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Sílvia Pérez Cruz and Kenny Barron, among others, to perform at the 56th Jazzaldia [post_excerpt] => The Festival will run from July 21-25 and the tickets will go on sale shortly [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => brad-mehldau-cecile-mclorin-salvant-noa-bill-frisell-mulatu-astatke-gonzalo-rubalcaba-silvia-perez-cruz-and-kenny-barron-among-others-to-perform-at-the-56th-jazzaldia [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2021-05-06 10:48:03 [post_modified_gmt] => 2021-05-06 08:48:03 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://jazzaldia.eus/?p=25524 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [3] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 25092 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2021-03-29 10:40:49 [post_date_gmt] => 2021-03-29 08:40:49 [post_content] => CARTEL 56 JAZZALDIA web

The 56th San Sebastian Jazz Festival, to run from July 21-25, now has its poster, work of the animator, director and animation producer, Isabel Herguera

The title of the poster is “Bye Bye Blues”. In the artist’s own words: “The poster is a farewell to the strange and painful year we have just lived through. It is also a homage to all of the women who have their place in the history of jazz past and present”.

Bye Bye Blues is, furthermore, a popular and jazz standard. Composed in 1925 by Fred Hamm, Dave Bennet, Bert Lown and Chauncey Gray, the song hit the charts with the version by Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1952. Although it has been performed by countless artists over the years, Isabel Herguera has taken two of these versions as her reference: the one by Julie London dating from 1957 and Cab Calloway’s 1940 instrumental.

Isabel Herguera:

Born in Donostia/San Sebastian in 1961. Studied at the Bilbao Faculty of Fine Arts, at the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf, and completed her training at California Institute of the Arts. For a decade she worked at different animation studios in Los Angeles. In 2003 she returned to Europe and made several short films selected for festivals including Annecy, Rotterdam and Ann Arbor, among others.

She has given numerous courses and workshops at: California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles; Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión de San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba; Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing. She was guest professor at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, India. She also designed and coordinated the Moving Image Laboratory at Arteleku.

Herguera has been widely recognised, having won numerous awards for her animation work, among which are particularly La Gallina Ciega (nominated for the Best Animated Short Film Goya 2006), Bajo la almohada (Under the Pillow, UNICEF award at Zinebi 2012) and Amore d’inverno (Best Basque Film 2015).

From 2003 until 2011 she directed the International Animation Film Festival of Catalonia, in Lleida, an event which received the National Audiovisual Award from the Consell Nacional de la Cultura i de les Arts in 2009.

Today she alternates her teaching work at the Kunsthochschule für Medien in Cologne, Germany, with the production of her first feature film, El sueño de la sultana (Sultana’s Dream).

The public response to the situation was exemplary, demonstrating great responsibility, yet with no loss of enthusiasm and almost full capacity at all venues. We must also highlight the total absence of incidents. This year, for the first time, we gave three Donostiako Jazzaldia Awards, an extremely well-deserved recognition for three Jazz geniuses: Jorge Pardo, Chano Domínguez and Iñaki Salvador. All three also took the centre stage, either together, or with their bands, to give memorable concerts at the main Jazzaldia venues: the Plaza de la Trinidad, the Kursaal Auditorium and the Victoria Eugenia Theatre. Alongside the afore mentioned figures, we had the opportunity to enjoy a selection of the best Spanish artists and groups. All of them, delighted at being able to give live concerts once again, brought us incredible moments packed with musical quality and art: Chano Domínguez, Marco Mezquida, Perico Sambeat, Carles Benavent, Chicuelo, Sílvia Pérez Cruz, Antonio Serrano, Raül Refree with the Portuguese singer Lina, Josemi Carmona, Tino di Geraldo... We also had concerts by Basque groups and artists of spectacular calibre. In the “Trini”, Oreka TX and Michel Portal gave two concerts, also leaving us with a joint improvisation that will stay with us forever. San Sebastian’s Iñaki Salvador with two concerts, one at the Kursaal together with Chano Domínguez, and the other at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre with Jorge Pardo and Bizkaia’s Borja Barrueta, who also performed with Pamplona’s Javier Colina in the “Trini”. In the San Telmo Museum cloister two pianists from San Sebastian, Paul San Martín and Mikel Azpiroz. And on the last day of the Festival, at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre, Joseba Irazoki with his friends. Completing the list of local performers, we also had the opportunity to see many young artists on the Kursaal Terraces, where we introduced a new format encompassing 21 concerts, all free of charge and with controlled audience numbers, in a space which turned out to be a magnificent spot to have a drink while enjoying great live music, all with spectacular views and the fantastic weather that accompanied us throughout the whole Festival. Three of this year’s best concerts featured Portuguese artists: Lina together with the Catalan Raül Refree at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre, Salvador Sobral at the Kursaal and Mariza in the Plaza de la Trinidad. The remaining artists, although some of them live in Spain, hailed from other countries: Norway, Sweden, France, Germany, Serbia, the United States... Rymden, Joachim Kühn, Anja Lechner, François Couturier, Bojan Z., Randy Greer (who lives in Valencia), Sean Clapis (who lives in Madrid)... One new feature this year took the shape of the concerts given in streaming mode, a total of 15 performances, followed live by myriad aficionados all over the world and which have already clocked up more than 14,000 viewings. A service offering free concerts and admission for those unable to attend the concerts in person. Also worthy of note is the fact that we now have 34,000 followers on social media. The eighth edition of Txikijazz brought 4 concerts which were hugely enjoyed and appreciated by the families who came along to watch them on the Kutxa Kultur Terrace at Tabakalera and on the Kursaal Terraces. At the end of the day, a Festival to remember both for the excellent quality of the concerts and for the incredible response of the Jazz aficionados, despite the adverse circumstances. The San Sebastian Jazz Festival, to run from 21-25 July 2021, reveals a substantial part of its line up The 56th Jazzaldia is already well on the way to completing its programme for 2021. Trusting that by then audience numbers will have returned to their original capacities and the conditions will have been restored to normal, part of the programme will be recovered, while hugely important names are also added to the Festival line up. Stellar incorporations to the next edition of the Jazzaldia are Herbie Hancock, Gregory Porter, Mulatu Astatke, Yann Tiersen, Brad Mehldau and the young female saxophonist, Lakecia Benjamin. Simple Minds, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Kurt Elling, with a new project including the guitarist Charlie Hunter, Hiromi, León Benavente and Vintage Trouble continue to feature as per the programme announced for 2020 prior to the Covid outbreak. John Zorn postpones the presentation of his two Masada quartets in the Plaza de la Trinidad until 2022.
