Sílvia Pérez Cruz (vocals), Toquinho (guitar, vocals), Javier Colina (double bass)
Ever since taking her first steps, the path followed by the Catalonian singer Sílvia Pérez Cruz has been unfaltering. If anything strongly catches the attention it’s her astonishing ability to tackle different styles, with her unmistakable own stamp. Stemming from the foundations of folk, we also find jazz, tropicalism, flamenco, fado, classical music and the mark of the habaneras she bred on. While she has a prodigious vocal register and an innate stage charm, her most outstanding feature is that of being a unique artist. Accompanied by the guitarist and singer Toquinho, an unparalleled benchmark of Brazilian music, and by the double bass player from Navarra, Javier Colina, one of the mainstays of Spanish jazz, this is guaranteed to be a delightful concert of the very highest artistic exquisiteness.

Charles McPherson (alto sax), Bruce Barth (piano), Mark Hodgson (double bass), Stephen Keogh (drums)
Charles McPherson started his musical biography in the best way possible: working with the eminent double bass player Charles Mingus from 1960 to 1972. He later toured worldwide, either as the front man or in collaboration with first-rate artists like Lionel Hampton, Wynton Marsalis, Dizzy Gillespie, Randy Brecker and many others. McPherson was Clint Eastwood’s jazz advisor when he filmed Bird, a magnificent biography about the jazz genius Charlie Parker. He was also given the job of playing Parker’s parts in the film. Today Charles McPherson is still one of the big names on the international jazz scene. And he’s coming with Bruce Barth, an extraordinary pianist and previous guest of ours at the Heineken Jazzaldia as the leader of his own groups.
