CD review: Sant Andreu Jazz Band, Joan Chamorro – Jazzing 9, vol. 1 – 2019: Full album video, CD cover

«I learn every day from my students, who don’t stop teaching me that we have no limits, that we always can advance, that enjoying every moment we are unconsciously aware that the best is yet to come, but not because that we live waiting, because, once and again, we are in the best moment: the present.» – Joan Chamorro

20 original arrangements (in volumes 1 and 2), specially written for the band, and with colaborations by Joel Frahm, Jon-Erik Kells, John Allred, Luigi Grasso, Ignasi Terraza, Josep Traver and Esteve Pi.

This album includes a gospel choir on a few cuts singing with the Sant Andreu Jazz Band both from Barcelona Spain. The album is available elsewhere e.g., Spotify. This is the ninth year a Jazzing album has been released of the previous year’s performances. However several years have had 2 or 3 volumes . I think there are 13 CDs in all.

  2. No Moon At All (2:39)
  3. Where Or Where (5:20)
