Gemma Abrié

Jamboree celebrates the Sant Jordi literary festival with the live premiere of the album-book 'Els Fruits Saborosos', where musician Vicens Martín has brought the poetry of Josep Carner to big band territory accompanied by the voice of Gemma Abrié. A work that has been hailed as the best new jazz offering of the year by popular vote in the Enderrock awards, and also feature recitations by Mariona Blanch. A magnificent musical date to round out the Sant Jordi festival celebrations.

Excellent performance of original modern jazz compositions.  Gemma's control was quite good yet very evocative. The band comprised horns saxes trombones, trumpets and a few others, guitar (Vicens), bass, piano and drums, 16 pieces if I counted right.  All was tightly rehearsed but free in juxtaposing complex arrangements and solos.  Interspersed with poetry reading to musical background. Well worth checking out.
