Soleil D´Hiver (Solo Piano)
JAZZ / LATIN-JAZZ
ERRABAL JAZZ (GH ER124 02)
The impressive curriculum of the Bilbao pianist, Jon Urrutia, leaves little doubt about his mastery, deep knowledge and eagerness to research the instrument and its musical techniques. Higher education in the USA and in Paris, masterclass and pedagogy and research work in processes of analysis and interpretation of sound improvisation back up him.
“Soleil d’Hiver ”offers for the first time the unique opportunity to appreciate his music in all its most essential purity. Recorded in November 2019 in Mecca Recordings, this beauty collects a total of 11 songs (own compositions and other people's classics) performed alone and exclusively on the piano. An invitation to close your eyes and get carried away by Jon on his musical globetrotter walk to marvel at those intricate structures such as coral atolls or stalactites of an imaginary world that we only access from our imagination, to remember that playful and hypnotic rhythm of a music box or that magical carousel of our childhood. There is something childish and playful in Jon's music that makes it irresistible and at the same time a rigor and complexity that makes it a fascinating mystery that opens up new doors and new enigmas with each listen. A true luxury that should not be missed.
