2006-2019 13 years. A dream come true! The important thing is the way, not the goal.
The Sant Andreu Jazz Band is an association for the transmission and dissemination of Jazz music and the musical growth of children and young people who are members of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band group.
Thirteen years of enthusiasm, work and magical results recorded in 8 recordings in CD and DVD format, and seven discs on the way. In addition to the collection, Joan Chamorro presents starring some of the young talents of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band: Andrea Motis, Eva Fernández, Magalí Datzira, Rita Payés, Marc Martín, Joan Mar Sauqué and the project La Màgia de la Veu , with two Cd's published.
More than 60 young people between 7 and 20 have gone through the orchestra.
They have starred in the documentary "Sant Andreu Jazz Band. A film about kids and music", directed by Ramon Tort, awarded worldwide.
They have stage mythical stages such as the Palau de la Música in Barcelona, the Liceu, the Auditorium and have brought their music for Festivals outside Catalonia (Switzerland, Marciac, Aix En Provence, Stockholm, Torreilles, Châteauneuf-du-Faou, Muel , Xàvia, Teulada and many more) and have been accompanied by great jazz artists such as saxophonists Scott Hamilton, Perico Sambeat, Dick Oatts, Jesse Davis, Scott Robinson, Luigi Grasso, Joel Frahm, trumpet players Terell Stafford, Jon-Erik Kelsso, Ricard Gili, Josep Maria Farràs and Matthew Simon, trombonists Wycliffe Gordon, Toni Belenguer, John Allred, Clarinetist Bobby Gordon and Kenn Peplowsky and their habitual collaborators Ignasi Terraza, Josep Traver and Esteve Pi.
The Sant Andreu Jazz Band Association is a not-for-profit organization born of the educational project of the band of the same name: a jazz orchestra with more than 50 musicians from six to twenty years old, led by the musician Joan Chamorro.
The history of the pedagogical project of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band is that of a success cooked on a slow fire, after 12 years of work, without haste or great ambitions, which now aims to go further with the 5th Edition of the Jazz-Festival Jazz de Sant Andreu and the Jazz House.
