Jorge Pardo, Sílvia Pérez Cruz, Chano Domínguez, Marco Mezquida, Joachim Kühn, Oreka TX, Iñaki Salvador, Carles Benavent, Javier Colina, Perico Sambeat and all those already announced have also confirmed their shows. The 55th San Sebastian Jazz Festival announces that it has closed and now confirms its programme of paying concerts. As forwarded, local musicians play an important part in the line-up; however, the perspective of borders opening in coming weeks means that the attractive names of European musicians have been incorporated. In the first place, three Portuguese singers Mariza, Salvador Sobral and Lina. Mariza, the performer responsible for reinventing of Fado and one of the great figures of Portuguese music, will treat us to the premiere performance of her emotional and majestuous interpretation of the repertoire of the brilliant Amália Rodrigues. Her show in the Plaza de la Trinidad will be one of the most eagely awaited at the 55th Jazz Festival. Lina and Raül Refree released an album which remained in the Top 10 of European radios for 4 months in a row, as well as in the leading music lists worldwide, magazines and specialised websites. They are also candidates with “Cuidei que Tinha morrido” for the Best Video Awards at New York’s One Screen Short Film Festival and Best Album at Les Victoires du Jazz, presented in France to coincide with World Music Day. Their lyrical and sombre reinterpretation of the Fado classics has caused a sensation all over Europe. Salvador Sobral, who previously won over an amazed public at his impressive performance in the Plaza de la Trinidad, will return with his current project: Alma Nuestra, a collection of boleros sung in Spanish, combining two of his musical passions: jazz and Cuban music. Iñaki Salvador, our pianist par excellence, will give two concerts; one as a duo with Chano Domínguez – Iñaki and Chano, two of the Spanish jazz piano heavyweights – and another in a quartet with the sax and flute player Jorge Pardo. The Festival will pay a tribute to two unique and decisive musicians in the history of music: joining the already announced reinterpretation of works by Beethoven brought to us by the pianist from the Balearics, Marco Mezquida, is a session (in fact the one opening the event) recreating the repertoire of one of the concerts given by the fabulous quintet, taken through its steps on that occasion by Charlie Parker, on what will be the 100th anniversary of his birth, going by the name of Jazz at Massey Hall: Charlie Parker Tribute. A section of three solo piano concerts will take place in the Cloister of the San Telmo Museum, featuring the extraordinary Serbian pianist Bojan Z. and local performers Mikel Azpiroz and Paul San Martín. In addition to the aforementioned, of course, is the performance, also in solo piano format, by Joachim Kühn at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre. Alternating between jazz, Eastern and classical music are the performances of two European virtuosos, packed with musical intelligence and sensitivity: the German cellist Anja Lechner and the French pianist François Couturier, who present their new project: Momento. Michel Portal, born in Bayonne, and who received the Donostiako Jazzaldia award in 2018, is without a doubt the Basque jazz musician of greatest prestige. Two years ago we heard him in two collaborations with other French musicians. Now we can listen to him in the Trini with his new quintet. Another Basque man, this time from Navarre, promises intensity and excellence: Joseba Irazoki. The Nordic trio Rymden has presented itself in the last year as one of the most powerful, creative and complex European musical projects. The fabulous keyboard player Bugge Wesseltoft is joined by two of the three members of the iconic trio E.S.T. Dan Berglund and Magnus Óström complete Rymden, the super group responsible for bringing the Festival to a close in the Plaza de la Trinidad.  The Festival is currently working on the programme of a series of concerts to substitute the cancelled free sessions and which will feature an important number of local groups. We will shortly announce the name of these groups and the format of their performances.  Tickets: Tickets for the Victoria Eugenia Theatre and the Kursaal Auditorium will go on sale on June 18. For the Plaza de la Trinidad, only group packages will go on sale on June 18 (referring to packages of 4 or 6 places sitting together, with discounts of 30% and 40%), while single and individual season tickets will go on sale at a later date (July 2). Tickets for the concerts at the San Telmo Museum will also go on sale on July 2. www.jazzaldia.eus - www.donostiakultura.eus/sarrerak   PROGRAM July 22 12:30 Teatro Victoria Eugenia - 12€    Jazz at Massey Hall: Charlie Parker Tribute 18:00 Teatro Victoria Eugenia - 12€    Lina_Raül Refree 21:00 Plaza de la Trinidad - 24€    - Colina, Carmona, Serrano, Barrueta: Veinte veinte    - Chano Domínguez Trío July 23 11:00 Museo San Telmo - 12€    Bojan Z., piano solo 12:30 Teatro Victoria Eugenia - 12€    Anja Lechner & François Couturier 18:00 Auditorio Kursaal - 20€    Chano Domínguez - Iñaki Salvador Dúo 21:00 Plaza de la Trinidad - 28€    - Oreka TX: Koklea    - Michel Portal New Quintet July 24 11:00 Museo San Telmo - 5€        Paul San Martín, piano solo 12:30 Auditorio Kursaal - 24€        Salvador Sobral: Alma nuestra 18:00 Teatro Victoria Eugenia - 18€        Chicuelo & Mezquida Trío: No hay dos sin tres 21:00 Plaza de la Trinidad - 24€        - Perico Sambeat Plays Zappa       - Benavent, di Geraldo, Pardo July 25 11:00 Museo San Telmo - 5€        Mikel Azpiroz, piano solo 12:30 Teatro Victoria Eugenia - 18€        Jorge Pardo - Iñaki Salvador Quartet 18:00 Auditorio Kursaal - 30€        Sílvia Pérez Cruz - Marco Mezquida: MA 21:00 Plaza de la Trinidad - 30€ - Carles Benavent Trío - Mariza Canta a Amália July 26 12:30 Teatro Victoria Eugenia - 20€        Joachim Kühn, piano solo 17:30 Teatro Victoria Eugenia - 12€        Joseba Irazoki eta Lagunak 20:00 Plaza de la Trinidad - 28€        - Marco Mezquida: Beethoven Collage       - Rymden: Bugge Wesseltoft - Dan Berglund -                       Magnus Öström Season tickets: Available from June 18 Teatro Victoria Eugenia:                  - 7 concerts: 73,60€ Auditorio Kursaal:                  - 3 concerts: 59,20€ Plaza de la Trinidad, group season tickets for 5 nights:          - Season ticket for 4 : 375,20€ (93,80€ per person)                - Season tickets for 5: 482,40€ (80,40€ per person)      Available from July 2 - Plaza de la Trinidad, individual season ticket for 5 nights:                  - 107,20€ per person -Museo San Telmo:                  - 3 concerts: 17,60€   Season tickets here: www.jazzaldia.eus - www.donostiakultura.eus/sarrerak [post_title] => San Sebastian's Jazzaldia, the first International Jazz Festival to announce its programme for the month of July.

It is the work of Joseba Larratxe Berazadi, also known as Josevisky (Irun, 1 March 1985). Larratxe started his professional career as a creator of cartoon strips for newspapers while studying Architecture in San Sebastian. Today, he illustrates for the magazine Argia, as well as for other publications and books. In 2019 he brought out the graphic novel Joana Maiz (Harriet Editions) with the screenwriter Yurre Ugarte, and he is soon to launch the album corresponding to the comic series Basolatik berri onik ez (Ikastolen Elkartea), written by Asisko Urmeneta. This year’s poster was created during the lockdown, a situation prompting a dynamic and light-filled result, featuring the public as its protagonist, understanding the Jazz Festival as a celebration. According to the artist: “Generally speaking, I believe it reflects our ability to remain happy in the face of adversity, come hell or high water.” For this year’s Jazz Festival poster, Joseba Larratxe made no attempt to conceal his cartoon roots in the outline or characterisation of the figures. In the illustrator’s own words: “I try to make my style identifiable, even if I have to adapt it to the characteristics of each project. Usually I start working on paper and end on the computer, but in this case I produced the complete process digitally.” The poster and more information for the press in this link: https://jazzaldia.eus/en/prensa-2/ [post_title] => The cartoonist and illustrator Joseba Larratxe Berazadi is the author of the poster for the 55th San Sebastian Jazz Festival.

The stages for this edition of the San Sebastian Jazz Festival will be the Plaza de la Trinidad, the Kursaal Auditorium, the Victoria Eugenia Theatre and the San Telmo Museum, all with assigned seating. While the final programme will be announced and the tickets will go on sale in late June or early July, work is already underway at the Jazzaldia to confirm a number of prestigious names from the Basque and Spanish Jazz scene. Recovered from the previous programme is the presence of Marco Mezquida, the new piano whizzkid, with three projects presented in earlier years in Donostia, and that of Oreka TX. Among the new features are Iñaki Salvador, the musician to have performed most often at the Jazzaldia and the pride and joy of Basque Jazz; Jorge Pardo, the sax and flute player recognised as one of Europe’s greatest Jazz musicians; Channo Domínguez, our most international pianist; the alto sax Perico Sambeat, who brings an instrumental tribute to Frank Zappa; Javier Colina, a double bass player and all-round musician from Pamplona of undeniable musical finesse, and the guitarists Josemi Carmona and Chicuelo, exceptional flamenco players with a sensitive and intelligent approach to Jazz, all joined by other great musicians, such as the harmonica player Antonio Serrano. Perhaps one of the most remarkable new additions, even if she is a regular at our Festival, is Sílvia Pérez Cruz, with the presentation of her album MA, recorded in Tokyo in 2019. Also deserving special mention is the extraordinary pianist Joachim Kühn, who recently released an album of solo piano dedicated to the most lyrical facet of the great Ornette Coleman, which he will present to us at the coming Jazzaldia in Donostia, being able to travel here from his home in Ibiza. More news will be announced shortly.

Today is a day of great losses for the jazz world. Ellis Marsalis, one of the great patriarchs of our music, and Wallace Roney, a trumpet player outstanding for his tremendous lyricism and musicality, have died.

Our Festival presented Ellis Marsalis with its Donostiako Jazzaldia Award in 2016, in recognition of his essential contribution to jazz history as a whole. As well as being one of the leading modern jazz pianists, he had accumulated enormous prestige as a music instructor: he taught hugely important musicians including Jesse Davis, Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, Nicholas Payton and, naturally, his sons Wynton, Branford, Delfeayo and Jason, all front-line jazz figures. The legacy left by Ellis Marsalis is impressive.

Wallace Roney was considered to be one of Miles Davis’s most outstanding students; in fact, the Davis offspring have issued a statement of their sorrow over Roney’s passing, highlighting the ties that connected them. But Roney also had his own voice and earned recognition for his personal merits. His quality was obvious in his two visits to the Heineken Jazzaldia: in 2006 as a member of the septet accompanying another recently disappeared icon, McCoy Tyner, and in 2012 with the Miles Smiles project recreating the work of Miles Davis.

The total number of spectators came to 168,000 The dates for the 55th Heineken Jazzaldia are 22-26 July 2020 From the artistic point of view, the 54th Heineken Jazzaldia was extraordinary. All of the concerts were a hit with the audience and, generally speaking, with the critics. While it’s not easy to choose the best among them, if we had to establish a podium, the highest step would probably be occupied by Maria Schneider, Atomic and John Zorn with his Bagatelles Marathon. Maria Schneider is prodigious as a composer, as an arranger and as a conductor. She needs an orchestra capable of rendering her work’s range of hues and intensity. A powerful yet subtle orchestra. Ensemble Denada, composed of extraordinary Norwegian instrumentalists, is that very orchestra. The concert they gave in the Plaza de la Trinidad has already gone down in the history of the Festival as one of its most memorable. John Zorn’s Bagatelles Marathon too will be remembered for a long time to come. The entirety of Zorn’s wide-ranging and complex musical universe condensed into two concerts of almost three hours with the participation of nineteen musicians grouped into different formations. John Zorn received this year’s Donostiako Jazzaldia Award, with which the Festival recognises the musicians who have had a special influence on the history, development and transmission of jazz. Atomic is, in itself, an innovative, inquisitive group overflowing with musical ideas. And if a quintet of this calibre surrounds itself with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, a group of seven first-rate Norwegian musicians, it’s easy to imagine that their concert in the Kursaal Auditorium was bound to be memorable. Also on the imaginary podium of the 54th Heineken Jazzaldia would be two illustrious veteran sax players, Houston Person and Charlies McPherson, representatives of a generation we’ll greatly miss when it disappears. The way they perform ballads is unique. These are musicians who exude wisdom and elegance, who instantly put the audience under their spell. Completing the perfect line-up of this 54th Heineken Jazzaldia were the big names topping the bill, whose spirit and popularity drew huge crowds. None of them let us down, and all continue to climb the steps of their career: Jamie Cullum, Joe Jackson, Diana Krall, Sílvia Pérez Cruz with Toquinho and Javier Colina. Joan Baez gave an especially moving concert before a packed Zurriola Beach on the penultimate gig of her “Fare Thee Well” tour, one of the last chances to applaud a legend. The Japanese cycle too was highly interesting. It was a huge surprise for the audience, who were generally unaware of the high level of jazz produced in Japan and the excellence of its performers. The recitals given by the pianists Chihiro Yamanaka and Ai Kuwabara were simply extraordinary, and the young guitarist Rei won over the spectators with her nerve and powerful stage presence. On the subject of Basque groups, one aspect worthy of note is the increasing prominence of female artists, referring both to their numbers and to their quality, in jazz groups (Reunion Big Band, Lurpekariak, Juan José Cabillas with Strings, The Funk & Risketeers...), rock bands (Belako, Nøgen) and in solo projects (Ainhoa Larrañaga, Sara Zozaya). The audience deserves a special mention too; we should probably even create an award to thank them for their loyalty and education. If the weather’s good, like on the first day, they gather en masse with exemplary civic behaviour. If it’s bad, they’re still there, undaunted, cloaked in the waterproof ponchos handed out by the organisation, encouraging the musicians to give their best. It’s true that this year the rain and the wind were particularly inclement, causing a great deal of trouble and preventing us from hitting the record audience numbers intimated by the throngs at the opening Jazz Band Ball. In this context, the total of 168,000 spectators are a fine demonstration that the Heineken Jazzaldia continues to hold fast as a popular and participatory event. Also worthy of mention and thanks is the Festival team. A combination of young and highly experienced stage managers (most of whom were in fact women) assisted by enthusiastic workers skilfully handled the problems caused by the bad weather. Nothing and nobody stops this Festival and preparations are already underway for the 55th edition, with the exciting yet complicated challenge of topping one that has just ended.   [post_title] => Excellent artistic standards and public response define a fabulous 54th Heineken Jazzaldia [post_excerpt] => The total number of spectators came to 168,000 [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => el-elevado-nivel-artistico-y-la-respuesta-del-publico-definen-un-excelente-54-heineken-jazzaldia-2 [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2019-07-30 10:50:43 [post_modified_gmt] => 2019-07-30 08:50:43 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://heinekenjazzaldia.eus/sin-categoria-en/el-elevado-nivel-artistico-y-la-respuesta-del-publico-definen-un-excelente-54-heineken-jazzaldia-2/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [5] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 20431 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2019-07-28 14:30:35 [post_date_gmt] => 2019-07-28 12:30:35 [post_content] => ZORN-WEB From the point of view of contemporary jazz, everything John Zorn touches turns to gold. He’s an untiring composer, a sharp selector of musicians and a fastidious band conductor. He has converted his latest book of compositions, The Bagatelles, into a concert with the name of Bagatelles Marathon. Seven different groups, nineteen musicians, an uninterrupted two-and-a-half hours of musical torrent. Everything goes in the creative universe of Zorn and the musicians in his team; everything, that is, of exquisite quality. Yesterday’s other protagonist was a pianist. I can hear you say: Diana Krall, of course. Well yes. Diana Krall is always the protagonist, her star shines with its own light. It’s a luxury to have her here in San Sebastian. Hers was the first concert to sell out, and given the reaction of the audience and critics to her yesterday’s performance, she’ll continue to sell out every time she plays here. Diana Krall needs no further words of praise. But in fact we had been referring to the Japanese pianist, Ai Kuwabara. The public packed into the Victoria Eugenia Theatre couldn’t believe that they were witnessing such a wonderful discovery, and in a free concert to boot. While Ai Kuwabara is indeed a prodigy of piano technique and brilliant execution, she has something else that prevents her from falling into simple academic rendition: ideas of her own which enable her to produce a unique reinterpretation of some of the jazz classics. In the Plaza de la Trinidad, moments of great pleasure were brought to us not only by Diana Krall, but also by Houston Person, one of the tenor sax’s big names, who plays ballads as only the veterans know how. And the other illustrious and veteran saxophonist at this Festival, Charles McPherson, gave a fantastic concert in the Victoria Eugenia. The San Telmo Museum hosts small-format concerts which are enjoying rising popularity with the public. Yesterday it was the turn of Baldo Martínez and his group, and the Galician double bassist once again demonstrated that he is one of the most representative musicians of contemporary jazz made in Spain.

Jorge Pardo, Sílvia Pérez Cruz, Chano Domínguez, Marco Mezquida, Joachim Kühn, Oreka TX, Iñaki Salvador, Carles Benavent, Javier Colina, Perico Sambeat and all those already announced have also confirmed their shows. The 55th San Sebastian Jazz Festival announces that it has closed and now confirms its programme of paying concerts. As forwarded, local musicians play an important part in the line-up; however, the perspective of borders opening in coming weeks means that the attractive names of European musicians have been incorporated. In the first place, three Portuguese singers Mariza, Salvador Sobral and Lina. Mariza, the performer responsible for reinventing of Fado and one of the great figures of Portuguese music, will treat us to the premiere performance of her emotional and majestuous interpretation of the repertoire of the brilliant Amália Rodrigues. Her show in the Plaza de la Trinidad will be one of the most eagely awaited at the 55th Jazz Festival. Lina and Raül Refree released an album which remained in the Top 10 of European radios for 4 months in a row, as well as in the leading music lists worldwide, magazines and specialised websites. They are also candidates with “Cuidei que Tinha morrido” for the Best Video Awards at New York’s One Screen Short Film Festival and Best Album at Les Victoires du Jazz, presented in France to coincide with World Music Day. Their lyrical and sombre reinterpretation of the Fado classics has caused a sensation all over Europe. Salvador Sobral, who previously won over an amazed public at his impressive performance in the Plaza de la Trinidad, will return with his current project: Alma Nuestra, a collection of boleros sung in Spanish, combining two of his musical passions: jazz and Cuban music. Iñaki Salvador, our pianist par excellence, will give two concerts; one as a duo with Chano Domínguez – Iñaki and Chano, two of the Spanish jazz piano heavyweights – and another in a quartet with the sax and flute player Jorge Pardo. The Festival will pay a tribute to two unique and decisive musicians in the history of music: joining the already announced reinterpretation of works by Beethoven brought to us by the pianist from the Balearics, Marco Mezquida, is a session (in fact the one opening the event) recreating the repertoire of one of the concerts given by the fabulous quintet, taken through its steps on that occasion by Charlie Parker, on what will be the 100th anniversary of his birth, going by the name of Jazz at Massey Hall: Charlie Parker Tribute. A section of three solo piano concerts will take place in the Cloister of the San Telmo Museum, featuring the extraordinary Serbian pianist Bojan Z. and local performers Mikel Azpiroz and Paul San Martín. In addition to the aforementioned, of course, is the performance, also in solo piano format, by Joachim Kühn at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre. Alternating between jazz, Eastern and classical music are the performances of two European virtuosos, packed with musical intelligence and sensitivity: the German cellist Anja Lechner and the French pianist François Couturier, who present their new project: Momento. Michel Portal, born in Bayonne, and who received the Donostiako Jazzaldia award in 2018, is without a doubt the Basque jazz musician of greatest prestige. Two years ago we heard him in two collaborations with other French musicians. Now we can listen to him in the Trini with his new quintet. Another Basque man, this time from Navarre, promises intensity and excellence: Joseba Irazoki. The Nordic trio Rymden has presented itself in the last year as one of the most powerful, creative and complex European musical projects. The fabulous keyboard player Bugge Wesseltoft is joined by two of the three members of the iconic trio E.S.T. Dan Berglund and Magnus Óström complete Rymden, the super group responsible for bringing the Festival to a close in the Plaza de la Trinidad.  The Festival is currently working on the programme of a series of concerts to substitute the cancelled free sessions and which will feature an important number of local groups. We will shortly announce the name of these groups and the format of their performances.  Tickets: Tickets for the Victoria Eugenia Theatre and the Kursaal Auditorium will go on sale on June 18. For the Plaza de la Trinidad, only group packages will go on sale on June 18 (referring to packages of 4 or 6 places sitting together, with discounts of 30% and 40%), while single and individual season tickets will go on sale at a later date (July 2).
