Isaac Turienzo Trío. Jazz de raíz
Isaac Turienzo, piano; Miguel Angel Chastang, contrabajo; Tino di Geraldo, batería

On Thursday February 26, the Cultural Center of Spain brings a unique opportunity to enjoy the best of Spanish jazz with the concert of Isaac Turienzo trío, a true treat for jazz lovers, part of the Beyond CCE program. Turienzo has been highlighted by the Spanish SGAE as one of the most important Spanish jazz musicians of the Nineties and has been present in practically all of the best jazz festivals, theaters and jazz houses in the World, including the Athens International Jazz Festival, The International Jazz Festival of San Sebastian, The Pushkin Museum Auditorium in Moscow, the European Community Auditorium Palace, Centro Cultural de la Villa de Madrid, the International Jazz Festival of Getxo, Teatro Campoamor in Oviedo and Jovellanos in Gijón, to name a few. During his remarkable career as a jazz musician, he has shared the stage with big names such as Andrezj Oleznizjack, Rebecca Parrish, Jorge Pardo, Miguel Ángel Chastang, Carlos Barreto, Carlos Carli, Chris Kase, Laurent Filipe, Tino di Geraldo, Guillermo Mc Guill, Ove Larsson, Bob Sands and Matthew Simon.
The Miami concert will feature his trio (Isaac at the piano, Miguel Angel Chastang, base and Tino di Geraldo on drums) with the “Jazz the Raíz” (Rooted Jazz) project, a tribute to the deepest music, the one we always carry deep down inside of our hearts, the music of a mother that brings a new perspective of our popular music with true sensibility. All three artists propose a journey through time with and endless horizon, where the ballad and the lullaby turn into a “Havanera”. Using universal languages such as jazz or the most updated flamenco, traditional songs are supplemented with originally and elaborated rhythms. Popular songs from Asturias or simply Iberian classics converted into ballads, waltzes and fados turn into a tribute to peace and understanding in the World and a meeting point for good music fans.
