JWQ Showcase 2017

Tuesday, October 6, 2015


Andrea Motis and Joan Chamorro bring here their first album as a big band, with the original arrangements of masters Alfons Carrascosa, Joan Monné, Sergi Vergés and Fredrik Carlquist. Andrea’s voice, superb, shifts and mixes sweetness and intensity, energy and sensibility.

There’s also a place for the instrumental arrangements as well as for each and every soloist of this band to show the best of themselves.
