JAVIER BOTELLA & ALBERT SANZ15€
Albert Sanz joins Javier Botella to give a joint show with themes by Gershwin, Porter and Weill. Bottle, one of the voices with the most personality and active on the national scene, closed the pre-pandemic era with a concert at the Palau de les Arts with a repertoire of swing greats and it took little time to reconvert and propose concerts with all the exquisiteness of a theater but in a reduced and private format, adapting to the new times.
Javier and Albert met thanks to the singer, songwriter and music teacher Celia Mur, one of the pioneers of jazz in Spain. Celia and Albert were performing together in a concert and that is how Javier heard his partner sing for the first time. Albert is a great pianist and composer but he was not in the habit of performing as a vocalist. Javier was so dazzled by their particular, characteristic and unique voice that he thought that one day they should unite them and create a joint project.
“It never was you”
This work draws on American music and jazz standards based on Broadway’s golden age, with teachers Kurt Weill, George Gershwin and Cole Porter as guides and role models. Javier and Albert have made an exquisite selection of songs with the experience and knowledge that a lifetime brings accompanied by this music. They have gone to the essence of the melodies and the original lyrics, respecting the germ of emotion that made this explosion of creativity possible.
