New crowdfunding campaign, Les Aventures de Monsieur Jules

New crowdfunding campaign, Les Aventures de Monsieur Jules

Les Aventures de Monsieur Jules is a project in which Jules Verne’s tales are woven together, told with intriguing music by Albert Guinovart

We are preparing a new recording work which we have been looking forward to for a long time, and finally we’ve found time and energy to bring it to fruition.
And… we think this is a good moment to ask for your help and for you to become part of this wonderful project.
By collaborating in crowdfunding, you will be a “producer” of this recording and it is also the best way to be sure you’ll be one of the first to enjoy it.

Spanish Brass and Chano Domínguez have created a new show: Puro de Oliva

06 CARTELL SB-CHANO copia

Spanish Brass and Chano Domínguez have created a new show: Puro de Oliva

Puro de Oliva is the title of a new show created by the Spanish Brass quintet and Spanish composer and flamenco-jazz pianist Chano Domínguez.

This show received its world premier with great success during the closing concert of the Spanish Brass Alzira Festival (www.sbalz.com) on July 1st.

For this show, Chano Domínguez composed a new piece for brass quintet and piano entitled Never Settle for the Oyster Light. The rest of the program consisted of other pieces by Chano that he arranged for Spanish Brass, piano and percussion, including Solo con verte, Mi Prima de Riesgo, De Cadi a New Orleans and Rumba Pa Jerry.

This project was born from a meeting between Spanish Brass and Chano Domínguez, who attended a concert by the quintet near Seattle (USA). A magic connection emerged between the musicians that led them to decide to share experiences on stage.
