The Gramophone Allstars Big Band, in the Jamboree

On the 1st of April the band will offer the first of three concerts in the same venue, each of which will feature special guests

During the month of April the Gramophone Allstars Big Band will play three concerts in the Jamboree under the title Jamboree Jazz Lab Sessions, in which the fifteen members of the band led by Genís Bou will both offer live interpretations of their own repertoire and improvise alongside guest musicians.

The first of the three concerts will take place in two sessions on the 1st of April, one at 8 pm, the other beginning at 10 pm - two sessions in which the Gramophone Allstars Big Band will interpret pieces from their latest release, Jazzmaica, which came out last September and in which the band have sought a meeting point for the fusion of 60s Afro-American sounds with Jamaican rhythms.

In their fourth recording to date, the fourteen members of the band, accompanied by the silken voice of Judit Nedderman, have revisited classic North American soul, funk and R&B hits that Jamaican musicians would have first come across on the radio decades ago. Songs such as "Can’t Get Enough", "Sophisticated Babylon" or "Miracles", recorded by musicians the stature of Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson are re-interpreted in a unique big-band format with contemporary arrangements.

In all three concerts the bands will be joined by guest musicians. On Tuesday the 14th of April they will perform accompanied by the Sey Sisters, and on Tuesday the 21st by Dutch saxophone player, Benjamin Herman.
