16th CD of the collection "Joan Chamorro presents ..." with the young saxophonist and clarinetist Marçal Perramon.
Marçal Perramon, from a family of musicians, started with the clarinet from a very young age.
At the age of 11 he began to play the tenor sax, which has become his main instrument. He soon joined the Sant Andreu Jazz Band, in which he was between 2012 and 2020. Today, Joan Chamorro continues to count on him for other projects.
In 2014 he held the position of the first tenor saxophone of the saxophone string of the SAJB and no longer left it. His evolution has been wonderful in all aspects. And all this evolution has been recorded in the more than 30 Cds that he has recorded with the SAJB or with related projects, some with renowned musicians as Joel Frahm, Scott Robinson, Scott Hamilton, Dick Oatts or Joe Magnarelli himself, that is present on this disc.
In this recording, Marçal is sublime, both with the tenor sax and with the clarinet. His phrasing is forceful in the fast beats, swinging in the middle beats, as well as deep and sensitive in the ballads. It is an album full of nuances, an album that moves through different sounds with some touches of Brazilian themes, performed by Alba Armengou on vocals, a big band theme with all the Sant Andreu Jazz Band and a vocal theme performed by Andrea Motis. He also shares a couple of songs with his colleague Joan Martí, who is also releasing a presentation album at the same time.
There are luxury guests such as the aforementioned Joe Magnarelli or Perico Sambeat and Carlos Martín. Also the presence of Joan Mar Sauqué on trumpet, on Marçal's own original theme, “Bluesuses” and a wonderful rhythmic section with Joan Monné on piano, David Xirgu on drums and Josep Traver on guitar in some themes.
