IOSU IZAGUIRRE SEXTET
JAZZ / LATIN-JAZZ
ERRABAL JAZZ (GH ER151 02)
As Iosu himself accurately tells us, Mingus' work is influenced by gospel, blues, African music, New Orleans, Mexico, Colombia, swing, be bop, Duke Ellington, Debussy, Stravinsky and free jazz. But it is always possible to identify his truth, his struggle and his love in each and every note within his compositions. And that has been the main approach Iosu. He has analyzed the master's music down to the simplest and tiniest elements, with them, he has built a new musical structure as a tribute.
The musicians who have accompanied him through this journey are equally outstanding members from our local scene. The record features Rubén Salvador (trumpet), Pablo Ramos (alto sax), Asier Iturbe (trombone), Koldo Uriarte (piano), and Aitor Bravo (drums). On the whole, 8 original songs by Iosu Izaguirre recorded at Araba hall from Fundación Vital in Gasteiz in December 2022. 8 charming affection samples, respect and admiration and a generous invitation to immerse yourself in the life and career of the unique Charles Mingus. Do not miss the chance.
