'TOMMY CAGGIANI QUARTET. Therion Project '. Tommy Caggiani Therion Project is a personal project by Milanese drummer, percussionist, composer and music therapist Tommy Caggiani, whose repertoire of original compositions fuses ethnic rhythms and jazz improvisation.

Throughout his career this Italian musician has recorded with Maurizio Giammarco, Antonello Salis, Malik Yaqub, Bob Sands, Jerry González, Jorge Pardo, José Luis Gutiérrez, Javier Colina or Baldo Martínez, among other musicians. He is in charge of the Tommy Caggiani Therion Project musical quintet, made up of musicians who mostly come from the Conservatorio Superior de Jazz de Navarra.

The name of the group is inspired by the Greek word therion, which means half animal, half human, with which they allude to the prehistoric figures of the theriantropos, where the superhuman strength of transformation is palpable, as well as the energy of music created by the group.

'COULEUR CAFÉ. Standard Jazz Vocal '. Couleur Café Jazz Quartet (CCJQ) emerged as "Four cats" in early 2010 as a classical jazz ensemble (piano, double bass, drums and voice), with the idea of ​​bringing this style of music to the general public through versions of songs jazz and other themes that, not properly belonging to this genre, are closely linked to it. Standards of jazz, bossanova, French song, funk, bolero or pop are some of the styles that his repertoire covers.

Characterized by their versatility and a personal vision of music, the components of CCJQ thus try to give a “new breath” to “old sounds”. But, not only that: In their desire to continue learning and evolving, they continue to explore new trends and incorporate them into their playing, enriching their performances and thus making CCJQ not "just another jazz quartet" "

José Luis Gutiérrez is an absolutely unclassifiable artist. A born creator: multi-instrumentalist, composer, inventor of instruments, poet, creator of programming ... his curiosity is infinite and his ability to surprise us, too.

Together with the Town Hall, it is the alma mater of La Granjazz. Side by side they have kept the programming alive, avoiding great difficulties. Well-liked in San Ildefonso where he was the town crier in 2014.
