Two years after the CD “Joan Chamorro presenta Èlia Bastida”, in which she appeared in her different facets as a performer (violinist as main instrument, vocalist and tenor saxophone), we give birth to this “The magic sound of the violin”. Èlia, during the 7 years that she has been part of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band, a project that I have directed for almost 14 years, has had an interest, a dedication, such a passionate dedication to music and specifically to jazz, that her evolution has made her become, nowadays, a great soloist, especially with the violin. The violin is an instrument that, in my opinion, still has a lot to contribute to jazz. There have been and are great violinists (Grappelli, Venuti, Ponty, Lockwood, to name just a few). Without leaving aside the musicality, the strength, the intensity of Grappelli as the main reference, and adding all the contributions of bebop, hardbop and other music, Èlia’s search for a discourse that gathers all the aspects she incorporates, finally make her walk along her own musical path, rich in nuances, open and free of labels, but, above all, passionate, with which she manages to extract all the wonderful possibilities that “THE MAGIC SOUND OF THE VIOLIN” has.
