about

Dos años después del CD “Joan Chamorro presenta Èlia Bastida”, en el que ella aparecía en sus diferentes facetas como intérprete (violinista como instrumento principal, vocalista y saxo tenor), damos a luz este “The magic sound of the violin”.
Èlia, durante los 8 años que ha formado parte de la Sant Andreu Jazz Band, proyecto que dirijo desde hace casi 14 años, ha tenido un interés, una dedicación, una entrega tan apasionada a la música y en concreto al jazz, que ha hecho que su evolución la lleve a ser, hoy en día, una gran solista, especialmente con el violín.
El violín es un instrumento que, en mi opinión, tiene aún mucho que aportar al jazz. Ha habido y hay grandes violinistas (Grappelli, Venuti, Ponty, Lockwood, por citar solo unos cuantos).
Sin dejar de lado la musicalidad, la fuerza, la intensidad de Grappelli como primera referencia, y sumándole todo lo aportado por el bebop, el hardbop y otras músicas, la búsqueda de Èlia de un discurso que recoja todos los aspectos que va incorporando, la hacen, finalmente, caminar por un sendero musical propio, rico en matices, abierto y libre de etiquetas, pero, sobre todo, apasionado, con el que consigue extraer todas las posibilidades maravillosas que tiene “el sonido mágico del violín” THE MAGIC SOUND OF THE VIOLIN
Èlia Bastida se incorpora al universo de los violinistas de jazz. Nuestra próxima cita es “Èlia Bastida meets Scott Hamilton”, del que ya hemos grabado 5 temas y que rememorará el encuentro que el gran saxofonista tuvo con Joe Venuti allá por los años ochenta.
Joan Chamorro


Two years after the CD "Joan Chamorro presenta Èlia Bastida", in which she appeared in her different facets as a performer (violinist as main instrument, vocalist and tenor saxophone), we give birth to this "The magic sound of the violin".
Èlia, during the 8 years that she has been part of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band, a project that I have directed for almost 14 years, has had an interest, a dedication, such a passionate dedication to music and specifically to jazz, that her evolution has made her become, nowadays, a great soloist, especially with the violin.
The violin is an instrument that, in my opinion, still has a lot to contribute to jazz. There have been and are great violinists (Grappelli, Venuti, Ponty, Lockwood, to name just a few).
Without leaving aside the musicality, the strength, the intensity of Grappelli as the first reference, and adding all the contributions of bebop, hardbop and other music, Èlia's search for a discourse that gathers all the aspects she incorporates, finally make her walk along her own musical path, rich in nuances, open and free of labels, but, above all, passionate, with which she manages to extract all the wonderful possibilities that " THE MAGIC SOUND OF THE VIOLIN" has.
Èlia Bastida joins the world of jazz violinists. Our next appointment is "Èlia Bastida meets Scott Hamilton", of which we have already recorded 5 tracks and which will recall the encounter the great saxophonist had with Joe Venuti back in the eighties.
