25th EDITION OF THE COSTA BRAVA JAZZ FESTIVAL

For this special festival Violetta presents a very special concert, a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. More, the focus of this tribute is Ella in Berlin, a live recording from 1960 that has become legendary. As if this wasn't enough, this is also an emotional engagement with the music for Violetta because Ella Fitzgerald was a close friend of Violetta’s father, pianist Paul Curry. All these elements will combine for a night to remember.

Jaume Vilaseca (piano), Dick Them (bass), Ramon Diaz (drums)

Friday 11th October

Centre Fraternal, Palafrugell, Costa Brava

ADM: €25 (including tapas and wine - places limited)

FESTIVAL ‘JAZZ AL HUERTO’

In the beautiful surroundings of Castejón de Sos, a mountain town in the Spanish region of Aragon, this is the 10th edition of this well regarded festival. Taking a high position in the leader board of boutique festivals, Violetta will join a roster of top artists at this year’s event. Spectacular scenery, great food and wine and wonderful music…sounds like a weekend!

VIOLETTA SINGS ELLA

The closing act at this year’s 4Djazz festival, I was commissioned by the festival to perform Ella Fitzgerald's famous ‘Ella in Berlin’. This is both a challenge and a labour of love, because Ella was a good friend of my father's, pianist Paul Curry, and I spoke to her often, as a young child. This will be emotional for me and I hope to do her memory justice. I will be joined on this adventure by Jaume Vilaseca on piano, Dick Them on bass and Ramón Díaz on drums.

INTO-ME-SEE

For this concert I undertake an intimate and emotional musical journey that encapsulates my mood at this moment in time, with a repertoire selected because of its ability to release deep-rooted feelings within me. Sometimes we don’t know why a composition affects us as it does but the result can be cathartic, releasing strong and repressed emotions that need expressing. Music helps me to heal and hopefully you will share this experience with me in a concert of very personal favourites.

BUILDING BRIDGES

Taking place in the beautiful MEAM Museum (Museum of European Art) in Barcelona and with pianist Ismael Dueñas, my ambition is to take people on a musical journey between styles, genres and cultures. Too often we are confined within a particular category of music, like a box in a record store (remember those;), and lose the possibility to soar across the musical landscape on the wings of wondrous exploration.

Reliving Whitney Houston

Following the sold-out Whitney show at the Wild Bunch club in Barcelona and the rewards that engaging with and reworking this material, I have decided to take this exploration a step further. The first concert was piano and voice only but for this next gig I work with Jazz trio Jaume Vilaseca, Dick Them and Ramon Diaz. With Jaume’s wonderful arrangements and the challenge of Houston’s incredible vocal range, we have challenged ourselves to make something special. Join us to see if we rise to the occasion.

WHITNEY (ONE NIGHT ONLY)

This concert is both a tribute to a remarkable voice and a chance to revisit material that is so embedded in the popular consciousness that it becomes almost invisible. Along with her long-term collaborator, the incredible Catalan pianist Jaume Vilaseca, the show will be an intimate revisiting and revelatory retelling of the songs of Whitney Houston.
