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.

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.

The pertinence and timeliness of these awards is undeniable, given that Pardo, Salvador and Domínguez have developed brilliant musical careers and figure among the continent’s most notable Jazz musicians. These awards recognise the excellence of a musical career in the field of Jazz and have been received by musicians such as Keith Jarrett, John Zorn, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Hank Jones, Max Roach, Elvin Jones, Clark Terry, Bebo Valdés and Wayne Shorter, among others.   https://jazzaldia.eus/en/donostiako-jazzaldia-award/   Jorge Pardo Jorge Pardo, a brilliant flute and sax player, represents Spanish jazz like nobody else. He has collaborated with musicians including Chick Corea, Paco de Lucía, Wagner Tiso, Camarón, Tete Montoliu, Alex Acuña, Gil Goldstein, Peter Erskine, Chano Domínguez and Javier Colina, earning himself a place as one of the most powerful voices of European jazz and as the most innovative of flamenco musician. Chano Domínguez Chano Domínguez has garnered numerous awards and international recognition of his prowess. His performances at the San Sebastian Jazz Festival (1995, 1996, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2006 y 2017) have always left a good taste in the mouth. He has collaborated, among others, with Enrique Morente, Paco de Lucía and Martirio, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, Wynton Marsalis and Stefano Bollani. Iñaki Salvador Iñaki Salvador is one of the best known Basque jazz musicians, author of soundtracks for cinema, television and theatre, with numerous albums to his name and in collaboration with others, creator of various projects warmly received at earlier editions of the San Sebastian Jazz Festival. A participant in the most influential Basque jazz groups, he has collaborated with musicians including Mikel Laboa, Perico Sambeat, Allan Skidmore, Pedro Iturralde, Jean Toussaint, Javier Colina, Jesse Davis, David Xirgu, David Gómez, Mario Rossy, Jorge Rossy, Charles Tolliver, Raynald Colom, Mikel Andueza, Gonzalo Tejada, Joaquín Chacón and Alvin Queen.   More information at: https://jazzaldia.eus/en/ https://jazzaldia.eus/en/prensa-2/       [post_title] => Jorge Pardo, Chano Domínguez and Iñaki Salvador to receive the Donostiako Jazzaldia award [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => jorge-pardo-chano-dominguez-e-inaki-salvador-seran-galardonados-con-el-premio-donostiako-jazzaldia [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-07-15 16:25:15 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-07-15 14:25:15 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://jazzaldia.eus/sin-categoria-en/jorge-pardo-chano-dominguez-e-inaki-salvador-seran-galardonados-con-el-premio-donostiako-jazzaldia-2/ [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [4] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 24023 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2020-07-09 10:21:32 [post_date_gmt] => 2020-07-09 08:21:32 [post_content] =>   ENTRADA NI NEU Programación terrazas Vinilo sobre panel 2000 x 2000 25 new concerts, the majority featuring young local artists, many of which will take place on the Kursaal Terraces. As in previous years, this edition will also include a jazz programme on the emblematic Kursaal Terraces, the setting for 21 concerts, specifically at the Frigo Gunea and on the Zurriola Terrace, from July 21 to 26. The idea with these concerts is to draw attention to the fine quality of local groups who have played on these same stages in recent years. The Jazz Festival’s commitment to the new home-grown jazz scene has lost none of its strength with the health crisis. This said, its responsibility and care required to deal with the threat of Covid-19 has had an enormous influence on the format in which said concerts will be presented. On the one hand, from the artistic point of view, the 55th Jazz Festival has asked the musicians and groups to make the effort to present their music in a format we could describe as “chamber”: stripped of percussion and in formations of no greater than three people on stage. These measures are intended to prevent the music from encouraging the audience to stand up and dance, something that would make it impossible to control social distancing. From the organisational point of view, the Kursaal terraces will take the shape of a bar-restaurant format, with a fixed maximum capacity of people and guaranteeing the distance between tables. The audience will therefore sit around tables at which food and drink will be served to them. More information at: https://jazzaldia.eus/en/ https://jazzaldia.eus/en/prensa-2/ 8th TXIKIJAZZ 2020 Txikijazz, an important part of the San Sebastian Jazz Festival, returns this year in its eighth edition, also adapted to the circumstances. Music will be the big star of the show and there will be no parallel activities for children. We will offer 4 concerts designed for family enjoyment, all in compliance with the protection and hygiene regulations stipulated by the authorities. Two concerts on the Kutxa Kultur Terrace at Tabakalera, as part of the Musika Familian season, with a capacity of 74 attendees and a price of €3 per person: - The Binilo’s: July 23, at 20:30. - Los Juanes: July 24, at 20:30.
