The author has chosen to use the neck of a double bass, considering it to be one of the instruments that best describes the jazz universe. Its outline represents the swing – with its curved, suggestive lines, packed with rhythm, while maintaining the full elegance of its classicism. To select this year’s poster, the Heineken Jazzaldia organised a contest restricted to a number of designers and artists, just as it did last year. José Luis Lanzagorta Graphic designer, founder in 1991 of the Lanzagorta Studio in San Sebastian, with clients above all from the world of art and culture. Some of his most noteworthy works are creation of the graphic image for exhibitions including Badu, bada and Atarian, for art centres like Tabakalera or the Bastero Kulturgunea, and a number of publications for institutions such as Koldo Mitxelena Kulturenea, the Classical Music Festival, Kursaal Foundation, Donostia Kultura and Heineken Jazzaldia, among others. In 2014 he launched the Begiaundi Press project, a workshop on graphic experimentation and research for the production of limited runs of editions in the printed press. Lanzagorta has already designed some of the best-remembered Heineken Jazzaldia posters, namely in the years 1989, 1990, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. A part-time musician, for several years he has been participating in different projects within the world of local pop music, being a founder member of the Orquesta Mondragón, Puskarra and, currently, of Amateur, after having been a member of Amor a Traición and La Buena Vida.

Salvador-Sobral-web

Christian Scott, Terrace Martin, Taylor McFerrin, Robert Glasper, Derrick Hodge & Justin Tyson: R + R = NOW Well that’s a contemporary supergroup if there ever was one! What a fantastic gathering of young talent. The spearhead of new jazz. Robert Glasper is a keyboard player with complex musical ideas he clearly expresses as frontman of his group Experiment, this time at the service of his new project, christened R + R = NOW, a socio-political and artistic reflection on the situation of today’s world. The trumpet-player Christian Scott is another ground-breaking youngster, who drank from the jazz fountains in his native New Orleans to develop his own, almost arrogant style, which enjoys unquestionable attraction among both jazz purists and the hip-hop community. Terrace Martin is the musician of the moment: sax-player, composer, singer, rapper, producer (of Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dog, Busta Rhymes and Stevie Wonder, for example). We enjoyed seeing him at last year’s Heineken Jazzaldia with the Herbie Hancock quintet. The keyboard player, DJ and beatboxer Taylor McFerrin has inherited a fair deal of his father Bobby’s charm. The whole thing needs the backing of some very serious rhythm. That’s why we have the bassist Derrick Hodge, winner of the Grammy in the hip-hop and R&B categories, as well as the drummer Justin Tyson who, despite his youth, has already chalked up experience with Mos Def and Esperanza Spalding. Salvador Sobral Salvador Sobral (voice), Júlio Resende (piano, arrangements), André Rosinha (double bass), Bruno Pedroso (drums) Thanks to the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest we discovered the enormous artistic sensitivity of a Portuguese singer who, despite generally concentrating on jazz, captivated audiences all over the continent with his unusual song Amar pelos dois, written by his sister Luísa, also a singer and composer. Salvador Sobral carried off the competition and immediately returned to what he loves most: jazz. In 2016 he released his first solo CD, Excuse Me, accompanied by Júlio Resende, Portugal’s top jazz pianist, with whom he will perform in San Sebastian. Trained at Barcelona’s Taller de Músic, his music has influences of bossa nova, popular Latin American music, and one of jazz history’s greats, the trumpet player Chet Baker, of whom Sobral is a self-confessed admirer. Curtis Stigers Curtis Stigers (voice, saxophone), Mathew Fries (piano), Cliff Schmitt (bass), Paul Wells (drums), John “Scrapper” Sneider (trumpet) He’s one of today’s great vocalists. He’s up there with the standards of Kurt Elling and Gregory Porter. As well as singing magnificently, he’s an excellent sax player. He composes his own numbers, but shines with his own light in the jazz standards and adaptations to jazz of pop and rock numbers. He debuted in the record world in 1991 with the song I Wonder Why, which climbed high on the North American and British charts. His version of Nick Lowe’s Peace, Love and Understanding could be heard on the movie soundtrack of The Bodyguard. He has collaborated, among others, with Elton John, The Allman Brothers Band, Prince, Joe Cocker and Eric Clapton. Stigers originally hails from Boise (Idaho), home to a large colony of Basque origin. All of the previously announced big names have been confirmed The programme of paying concerts is now closed with the new additions listed above. An announcement had already been issued on the presence at the 53 Heineken Jazzaldia of Gregory Porter, Chick Corea, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Brad Mehldau, Kenny Barron, Carla Bley, Holland/Hussain/Potter, Benny Green, Caetano Veloso, Michel Portal and Maceo Parker, among others.

Chick Corea will come as part of an acoustic trio with John Patitucci and Dave Weckl, the musicians to enjoy the greatest mutual understanding in recent times with the brilliant North American pianist, one of the most popular and crucial figures of jazz. Kenny Barron will demonstrate with his current quintet the excellent form achieved in his artistic maturity. Barron was presented with the Donostiako Jazzaldia Award in 2000. Chick Corea, for his part, received the same accolade in 1998. Completing the list of unrepeatable pianists, the programme is joined by Brad Mehldau, especially appreciated by the Heineken Jazzaldia audience, who will be accompanied by his customary trio. Caetano Veloso is one of Brazil’s best loved musicians, a prolific composer and singer of unprecedented elegance. For his performance in Donostia he will present his latest project, in which he will be accompanied by his three sons: Moreno, Tom and Zeca. The legacy of Ray Charles, recreated by his orchestra and with the high-powered sax player Maceo Parker as its master of ceremonies. This is definitely a show not to be missed. Benny Green is another pianist at the height of his career. His performance in trio format will enable to see for ourselves the fine quality of his current artistic proposal. Performances previously announced at the coming Heineken Jazzaldia are Gregory Porter, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Carla Bley, Dave Holland, Michel Portal, Zakir Hussain, Jacob Collier, Bruce Barth, Julian Lage, Endangered Blood, Tom Ibarra, Iñaki Salvador, Marco Mezquida and GoGo Penguin. Cécile McLorin Salvant won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album with her Dreams & Daggers, lending even more excitement to the already-existing expectation surrounding her performance at the coming Heineken Jazzaldia. The saxophonist Chris Potter, who will also perform in San Sebastián as part of the Dave Holland trio, received a Best Jazz Instrumental Album nomination for The Dreamer is the Dream. Tickets will go on sale at the end of February, by which time the full programme will be available. A number of highly renowned musicians are still expected to join the line-up.

Let’s start with the voices: last year’s huge sensation, Gregory Porter, who’ll bring his new project with the songs of Nat “King” Cole accompanied by a symphony orchestra; and two major new features: one, the singer in greatest shape on today’s scene, young, different, inventive, classy, Cécile McLorin Salvant; and the other, Jacob Collier, surprising, multi-instrumentalist and astonishing vocalist. Europe will enjoy a multiple, varied and interesting representation: Michel Portal, the front-runner of Basque jazz musicians; the new stars of French jazz, Émile Parisien, saxophonist, Vincent Peirani, accordionist, Médéric Collignon, trumpetist and, above all, the guitar player Tom Ibarra, aged only 19 and winner of this year’s Rising Star contest; not to forget Britain’s GoGo Penguin and their new jazz trio concept. Two of the pianists dearest to us will also perform at the Heineken Jazzaldia, Iñaki Salvador, with a homage to Mikel Laboa on the 10th anniversary of his death, and Marco Mezquida from the Balearic Islands, with his fascinating recreation of Maurice Ravel’s repertoire. Two extraordinary Lebanese musicians will bring us their new projects. On the one hand, Rabih Abou Khalil, who plays the oud and has an extensive and marvellous production with some of the most outstanding contemporary jazz musicians. On the other, the flute player settled in France, Naïssam Jalal, with her proposal of unique beauty and strength, as oriental as it is jazz-flavoured. Unique concerts will also come from two immensely attractive trios: one, the pianist Carla Bley, with her inseparable Steve Swallow and British sax player Andy Sheppard; the other, bringing a lineup of three monsters: Dave Holland, on the bass, Chris Potter, on the sax, and, on the percussion, master Zakir Hussain. But that’s not all. Other top-notch artists will include the pianist Bruce Barth, with a jazz homage to the music of the Grateful Dead;  California’s new guitar “wizard”, Julian Lage; a cult saxophonist: Dick Oatts, in a quartet with the Basque Víctor de Diego; and the group Endangered Blood, with members Chris Cheek, Oscar Noriega, Jim Black and Trevor Dunn. Other impressive names to make up the bill of the 53rd Heineken Jazzaldia will be announced in January 2018. Tickets will go on sale in February 2018.

With a distinctive voice in Jazz, Funk and Fusion, Tom competed against over 270 artists from over Europe for the title. Entries were judged by a panel including US record producer Brian Bacchus; England´s jazz superstar Jamie Cullum; and French festival and radio producer Sebastien Vidal. As winner of this year’s RISING STARS Jazz Award, Tom will embark on a 2018 tour of seven of the major jazz festivals in Europe. These include the Nice Jazz Festival in France; JazzOpen in Stuttgart, Germany; Heineken Jazzaldia in San Sebastian, Spain; the Kongsberg Jazz Festival in Norway; the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in the UK; the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Netherlands; and the Leopolis Jazz Festival in Lvov, Ukraine. In addition, he will receive PR and marketing support. Commenting on the award, Jamie Cullum said: “It is encouraging to see that there are so many unbelievably talented musicians out there. Tom is only 18 years of age, but plays with the feel of a veteran and has a tool kit of musical abilities that allows him to step up at any given moment to put his stamp on the music”. Born in October 1999, Tom began playing guitar at the age of 6 and was influenced by artists including Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Weather Report and Wes Montgomery. He released his debut album 15 in 2015, 4 years after starting to compose original songs. Over the years, Tom’s talent has been recognized by jazz greats including Marcus Miller, Richard Bona, Didier Lockwood and Sylvain Luc, who have all invited him to share the stage with them on various occasions.
