“Suite Trafalgar”

Andalucía Big Band (ABB) is a Seville-based jazz orchestra made up of musicians originating from different Andalusian provinces: Huelva, Cádiz, Seville and Málaga. It was formed with the aim of bringing jazz closer to the public, so they can get to know both traditional Big Band music and also the work of modern-day composers.

For Lisbon, ABB have put together a concert with pieces for a guest soloist, moving the band towards the “third stream”. A look at the music of Gil Evans and Miles Davis has allowed the band’s pianist and composer, Javier Galiana, to devise a suite with a collection of pieces based on flamenco rhythms  and rooted in the contemporary tradition more than jazz. In each of its pieces, the “Suite Trafalgar” invites us on a trip along the Cádiz coast. Alongside this suite, ABB will perform  a series of pieces and compositions that are their own and unique, committed as they are to developing and promoting the creation of a special repertoire inspired by, or created in, their homeland.
