Growing into music: jazz in Barcelona
Alba Armengou, Andrea Motis, Joan Chamarro, Alba Estaban, Èlia Bastida, Rita Payes, Abril Saurí.
To follow my first post on the amazing Sant Andreu jazz band, the next generation of female singers and instrumentalists is just as fabulous, delighting in accompanying each other.
- Alba Armengou (trumpet)—another version of Meditaçao, 2018:
Triste, together with Èlia Bastida, Andrea Motis, and Rita Payés—a gorgeous song:
- Èlia Bastida (violin and sax) (cf. jazz fiddle)—De conversa em conversa:
You’d be so nice to come home to:
- Alba Esteban (sax)—I cried for you:
- Abril Saurí (drums)—I like to hear it sometimes (2016):
Lover come back to me:
As well as Joana Casanova (sax)—I could write a book:
and Blue gardenia:
In ensemble, here’s My funny Valentine (cf. Chet), with Joan Chamorro taking the lead:
and all together at a 2017 gig:
Lastly, adroitly linking up with my posts on Music and the potato and Pomodoro!, here’s Alba Armengou again, with Let’s call the whole thing off (“I just don’t see what’s wrong with this relationship“):
Now I’m keen to hear a Catalan version (… jo dic tomàquet, i dius tomate…).
Again, this is only a tiny selection of the wealth of material on Joan Chamorro’s YouTube channel; and whatever the future holds for these brilliant young performers, there’s a wealth of talent here.
