The concert, scheduled for the evening of 16 December, is part of the programme of the 48 Voll-Damm Barcelona International Jazz Festival
Although this is by no means the first time they have coincided on a stage, every time they get together singer Andrea Motis and bassist Joan Chamorro create something unique. Jazz lovers will be delighted to learn that the Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro Quartet will be appearing again at Palau de la Música at 9pm on Friday 16 December. The concert is part of the programme of the 48 Voll-Damm Barcelona International Jazz Festival, and will be an excellent opportunity to hear the album Emotional Dance, the first album recorded by a Catalan jazz musician for the iconic Impulse label, which released important albums including A Love Supreme, by John Coltrane, and some of the best work recorded by Charles Mingus, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp and Quincy Jones. The album was recorded in New York and features pieces in Catalan, English and Portuguese.
Motis and Chamorro are calling in here after a long tour that has taken them to South Africa, Japan, Brazil, the United States and countries all over Europe. Last year, Motis also opened for the Buena Vista Social Club on a number of occasions. Ignasi Terraza on the piano, Josep Traver on guitar and Esteve Pi on drums complete the quartet, and the lineup will also feature a special guest, Valencian Perico Sambeat, an alt sax player with a number of recordings under his belt who has worked with figures like Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Tete Montoliu, Michael Brecker and Pat Metheny.
