PLAYGROUND7€ – 10€
*Concert sponsored by San Miguel Music Explorers
PlayGround is a musical shuttle where everything is possible.
It was made by Albert Sanz (keyboard and voice), Iván Cebrián (guitar) and Sergio Martínez (percussion and samplers) in Valencia, this band is impossible to classify due to the combination of Jazz elements, electro music or world music. Its stereotypical sound looks into past and future, and it lives in the present with boldness and mistery in its compositions, freshness and set in its interpretations, always like a leap in the dark.
Quite an experience.
With the passing of the years, the pianist Albert Sanz (Valencia, 1978) has become one of the references in Jazz music in our country. He has been touring with artists like Kurt Rosenwinkel, Chris Cheek, Mark Turner, Guillermo Klein or René Marie; and regularly contributing with Javier Colina, Silvia Perez Cruz, Jorge Rossy or Perico Sambeat.
His latest projects are among Al Foster or, with his own compositions, “L’Emigrant” for Bigbands that make him one of the greatest Spanish Jazz musicians that, increasingly, are recognised abroad.
Ivan Cebrian, guitar player from Valencia, graduated in the Royal School of Music, and later moved to Los Angeles where he studied in several seminars and took private classes with great musicians recognised worldwide; he has taken part in very important Jazz musical groups like Perico Sambeat Hot Rats Ensemble, Perico Sambeat Big Band, Perico Sambeat Trio, Albert Sanz Playground trio, Javier Vercher Quintet, Gabriel Schwartz Brasiliana, Ramón Cardo Quartet, Sedajazz Big Band, Soul Tubes, Sole Gimenez, Astrid Asher, Alexei Leon Quintet, Santi Navalon Elektrik Jazz Mantra, among others. He also directs his own personal project called Iván Cebrián Quintet e Iván Cebrián Trio.
Sergio Martínez , percussionist and teacher at the Berklee College of Music. Playing styles between Flamenco, Jazz and World music. He has collaborated in concerts and recordings with artists like José Mercé, Diego del Morao, Niña Pastori, Jorge Drexler, Paul Simon, Joe Lovano, Danilo Perez, Terri Lyne Carrington or John Patitucci.
