THE BARCELONA SESSIONS

25/07/2019

22:00 h. Castillo de Santa Catalina

Raynald Colom presents his new album ‘The Barcelona Session’ after a record silence of 7 years as leader. The official release of the album (recorded live in Barcelona along with great musicians referents of the international scene: Danny Grissett, Joe Sanders, Gregory Hutchinson and Lluc Casares) was this past April 5.

In ‘The Barcelona Session’ Colom plays, precisely, to consider all the possibilities that this city gives: to live, to feel the Mediterranean streets of lines and circles, to get lost and to find oneself in them too. Then the abstraction is drunk to later earth it. You hear the firm steps of inquiry, of emotion, of love, of knowledge. The lights and shadows of this sound of continuous metamorphosis are chiselled. And it is that in the words of Colom himself, “the selection of themes becomes a sound trip for” my Barcelona “.

Suddenly, a stop, a look to the sky. A skateboard that goes by and the classic flavor that graffiti the new. Bridges are created (Interludi 1), we wander through the streets in our own whispers (My own) and after a while we run between jumps and schizophrenias of the city itself (Powder). Calm comes, too, in “The Barcelona Session”. With Peacocks (by Jimmy Rowles) the end of another principle is rekindled. One of Colom’s favorite ballads that directly associates with hope: one could then draw the night without being seen, only being listened to.

The Barcelona Session oscillates between a beginning and an end that does not really exist. In this sound-emotional map the flight rises and in the sky truths are reaffirmed.

RAYNALD COLOM

Considered one of the greatest exponents of Spanish jazz. Colom has been collecting recognition for some time. Between 2001 and 2005 the association of jazz musicians and modern music has recognized it as a voice of Catalan jazz. He has been awarded the Enderrock Prize in 2005 for the best jazz album and most recently the Puig-Porret prize for the best artist dels “Països catalans”. Spoiled by the specialized press, Colom has long frequented the European stages accompanied by Mark Aanderud, Tom Warburton and Marc Ayza. For this concert, the trumpet prepares a tour of some of its most emblematic themes.

JURE PUKL’S DOUBTLESS with MELISSA ALDANA, JOE SANDERS and GREGORY HUTCHINGSON

Internationally acclaimed and respected worldwide, saxophonist and composer Jure Pukl presents his new album DOUBTLESS. This is a rare record of double tenor sax with Pukl and Chilean saxophonist Melissa Aldana, winner of Thelonious Monk Competition 2013. The rhythm is carried by two world-class artists: bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. In a completely acoustic environment without a harmonic instrument, with a small production that is associated with the late fifties and early sixties, Pukl evokes at this time the sound of the old Ornette Coleman. On the other hand, in the arrangements and approaches of the solos, the saxophonist born in Slovenia and settled in New York is an unmistakable musician of the 21st century and his ludic and strong tone with Aldana form a universal character. The values ​​of jazz and improvised music: a combination of deep sound, virtuosity, harmonic and rhythmic creativity.

MELISSA ALDANA
From Chile we get a prepared food sound of advanced forms spurred by intense discharges of bebop. With four albums to his credit, a solid background acquired at Berkley College, and very diverse incursions into European stages, the saxophonist Melissa Aldana is another of the important names that this year show merits in the section that JAZZMADRID, implicitly, devotes to ejazzen each of its editions.

Melissa Aldana has pedigree. She is the daughter of the also tenorsaxophonist Marcos Aldana and disciple of Joe Lovano, Greg Osby and Ralph Peterson, among others. This tenorsaxophonist competes, from Chile, her homeland, with colleagues like Ingrid Laubrock or Jane Bunnett. The luck: to have fallen grace to the Panamanian pianist Danilo Pérez, who knew how to place her on the launching pad of popularity, inviting her to participate in the jazz festival of his country.

A Free Fall, his first album of 2010, followed him in 2012 Second cycle, and in 2014 Melissa Aldana & Crash Trio. Last year published Back Home, work whose compositions now comes to present among us. On the agenda there is a sound prepared food with advanced forms spurred by intense discharges of bebop. And all this resolved in that attractive format of trio without piano, of which Sonny Rollins, the hero of Melissa, was always outstanding representative.

SOLD OUT

TRUBADOR has already created a stir in the world of music. Miron’s long-awaited debut, although deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, perfectly combines other styles of music ranging from Afro-Cuban rhythms to Arabic, Balkan and flamenco music. His compositions flow melodically and the level of musicality and improvisation in this album are at a very high level.

‘My music is a mixture of everything that has influenced me throughout my life. My compositions are not filtered by a style, a genre or a tradition, but rather by my own ear and taste, with the hope of fusing beautiful melodies, be they simple or complex, with rich and elegant harmonies. I am trying to deepen and touch any listener with an open mind and ear, always maintaining a high level of respect for the art of music. ‘

Miron has the pleasure of having as guest artists on the album landmarks of the flamenco world such as JORGE PARDO on the flute, ANTONIO SERRANO on the harmonica and ISRAEL SUAREZ PIRAÑA on the cajón, the three known for their collaborations with the great PACO DE LUCÍA.
