Joan Chamorro presenta Joan Martí
JAZZ / LATIN-JAZZ
JAZZ TO JAZZ (JJ 20027 02)
15th CD of the collection "Joan Chamorro presents ..." with the young saxophonist Joan Martí.
He was part of Sant Andreu Jazz Band between 2010 and 2020 and Chamorro continues to count on him for other projects. His evolution was so great that he soon became a fundamental musician in the orchestra. He has led the string of saxophones, with a very fine, powerful sound, with the right vibrato at every moment, expressive as well as sober. He has alternated the alto sax with the tenor, the soprano, the clarinet, the flute, which has become important in his panoply of instruments, as well as the voice, with which he has a long way to go to develop.
The CD that we are presenting is a marvel, a balance between arrangements for various instruments (mostly by Joan Monné) and quartet or quintet themes, also paying tribute to the great tenors in jazz history. The participation of Joe Magnarelli, Perico Sambeat and Carlos Martín as guest soloists stands out, as well as the rhythmic base with Joan Monné, David Xirgu and, in some songs, Josep Traver. The vocal part is also important in some songs, by Andrea Motis, Joana Casanova and Joan Martí himself.
As well as the original arrangement for the entire Sant Andreu Jazz Band, by Joan Martí himself, of the beautiful song 'Indian Summer'.
