Andrea Motis: trumpet and vocal
Joan Chamorro: double bass
Josep Traver: guitar
Esteve Pi Ventura: drums
"If the jazz world were not so damn slow in recognizing talent, the 2017 release of ‘Emotional Dance’ - Andrea Motis’ first record as leader of Impulse!, would have been enough to project her into the stratosphere.”
The great Quincy Jones had seen it when he had invited the not yet seventeen-year-old onto the Barcelona Festival stage. Today her admirers are more numerous than the happy few of the past and her brand new album "Do Outro Lado Do Azul" is here to show that Andrea Motis is a bright star of contemporary jazz and that listening to her is like opening a window on spring."
Despite her young age, Motis has expressed an incredible musical maturity, which alternates between trumpet, her passion since childhood, singing and composition. Motis has a delicate expressive tone that bears comparison to the styles of the great Billie Holiday and Norah Jones.
Her vocal ability and great talent as a trumpeter, alongside a deft touch as a composer, places her among the greats of the international firmament. Joan Chamorro, Catalan double bass player of great feeling and experience, Josep Traver, an eclectic guitarist and a worthy teacher and Esteve Pi Ventura,one of the most sought-after jazz drummers on the Spanish scene, accompany her at Garda Jazz.
