SegoJazz 2020, December 8-13

The Cárcel_Segovia Creation Center will host a new edition of SegoJazz between December 8 and 13. The nineteenth appointment of this initiative returns to delight the public with the swing of three great artists and groups, the singer Yoio Cuesta, Pedro Ojesto Trío with Román Filiu and Bestiario, who will perform on the 11th, 12th and 13th, in the Sala Julio Michel.

The SegoJazz poster draws on interesting musical fusions to show the complexity and richness of this musical style born at the end of the 11th century, but does not forget the more traditional jazz rhythms. In fact, on Friday, December XNUMX, one of the most recognized jazz singers in our country, Yoio Cuesta, will present 'Hablando de ella', a jazz repertoire of all time, sung in Spanish. His voice becomes the common thread of a proposal with Latin airs and a very refined jazz. For this work he has the collaboration of the pianists Jacob Sureda and Jorge Vera in the arrangements; and a sextet made up of great musicians from the current jazz scene in Spain.

On Saturday, December 12, SegoJazz continues with a proposal that mixes jazz, flamenco and a special touch of Cuban influence. Pedro Ojesto, one of the icons of the fusion of jazz with flamenco, presents this project with the Cuban saxophonist based in New York, Román Filiu. Along with Ojesto's piano, Josemi Garzón's double bass and Fernando Favier's drums will share the stage.

The concert cycle ends on Sunday, December 13, with a symbiosis between jazz, fusion music and poetry, by the hand of Bestiario. The band has established itself as a voice of its own within the youngest and most current jazz. Their sound takes references from the Mediterranean, American and African traditions and mixes them with the modernity of funk, rock and the avant-garde, in a fusion in which poetry is one more instrument. The quintet is made up of Jorge Moreno (trombone and ink), Belén Martín (alto sax), Alberto Molina (keyboards), Javier Santana (bass) and Adrián Alameda (drums).

All concerts will begin at 19:00 p.m. Due to the capacity restriction, the Department of Culture will broadcast the concerts in streaming in the Sala Ex.Presa 2 so that a greater number of public can enjoy this jazz proposal.

Tickets, now on sale, are priced at 7 euros for the Julio Michel Room and 3 euros for the Ex.Presa Room 2. Both can be purchased through www.turismodesegovia.com and at the Visitor Reception Center .

The program is completed with participatory activities. All of them will be open to the public with an invitation that can be collected at the Visitor Reception Center.

On December 8 there will be a master class taught by Miguel López. The director of the Andalucía Big Band and professor at the Escuela Superior de Música del País Vasco will work on the style and language of the Big Bands together with the Segovians Let the Children Play Big Band. The appointment will begin at 16:00 p.m. After the master class, Let the Children Play Big Band will offer a microconcert at 20:30 p.m. with the topics covered during the afternoon.

On December 9 will be held the conference "Jazz here and now" by Segovian drummer Rodrigo Muñoz, who will make a personal and particular review of the most current national jazz and will analyze groups and artists in a colloquial and accessible way with examples to listen enjoy jazz. It will be from 19:00 p.m.

Finally, on December 10, it will be the turn for the jam session of Muñoz, Lechón and Xas. Together with the trio, other musicians and singers will be able to participate with all security and distance measures, but without losing the improvisational character of this type of concerts. It will be from 19:00 p.m.
