Puerto Rico Jazz: XIMO TÉBAR LLEGA CON SU SON MEDITERRÁNEO

XIMO TÉBAR LLEGA CON SU SON MEDITERRÁNEO

Pro Arte Musical presenta al guitarrista valenciano como parte de sus conciertos “Fuera de serie”

San Juan, 11 de abril de 2017 — Pro Arte Musical da inicio a sus conciertos “Fuera de serie” con la presentación del guitarrista valenciano Ximo Tébar, reconocido como uno de los principales jazzistas europeos de la actualidad y creador del llamado “son mediterráneo”, una fusión de los géneros del jazz y el flamenco. Este concierto será el viernes 21 de abril, a las 8:00 p.m., en la Sala Jesús María Sanromá del Teatro Bertita y Guillermo L. Martínez del Conservatorio de Música.

Ximo es guitarrista, profesor, compositor y productor, reconocido por la prensa internacional como un músico experimental, progresivo e innovador. Músico precoz, a los 17 años ya se había profesionalizado y se le reconocía como uno de los guitarristas españoles de jazz con mayor proyección internacional. Desde entonces, ha realizado giras y grabaciones por Europa y América liderando su propio grupo o junto a prestigiosos solistas como Lou Bennett, Johnny Griffin, Benny Golson, Joe Lovano, Tom Harrell, Tete Montoliu, Anthony Jackson, Lou Donaldson, Louie Bellson, Joey DeFrancesco y Jan Akkerman, entre otros.

Su proyección internacional le llevó a fijar su residencia en Manhattan en 2004, donde se introdujo en la escena jazzística neoyorkina firmando un contrato discográfico con Sunnyside Records, y comenzando a trabajar, de la mano de Arturo O’Farrill con la Chico O’Farrill Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra, presentándose cada domingo en el legendario Birdland Jazz Club.

Su extensa discografía (16 discos como líder), los numerosos premios que ha obtenido, las excelentes críticas que ha recibido y, sobre todo, el eclecticismo y modernidad de su música le han llevado a ocupar un lugar preferencial en el mundo del jazz actual que le reconoce como un gran conocedor de esta tradición.

Como celebración del 25 aniversario de su “son mediterráneo”, Ximo lanzó la nueva producción “Soleo. The New Son Mediterráneo Celebrating 25th” y el libro, “Ximo Tébar: la guitarra del jazz mediterráneo”, escrito por José Pruñonosa y editado por Piles (Editorial de Música S.A.), que hace un recorrido por su discografía y por sus veinticinco años de carrera en la música.

Los boletos para este concierto están a la venta en Ticket Center (tcpr.com, (787) 792-5000) o en la boletería del teatro el día del concierto.

Toyota to Serve as Lead Partner

Paris, Washington, D.C. and Havana – United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Director-General Irina Bokova and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Herbie Hancock announced today the sixth annual International Jazz Day, which will be celebrated worldwide on April 30, 2017. The day will culminate with an All-Star Global Concert presented at the Gran Teatro de La Habana Alicia Alonso, under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture of Cuba, the Cuban Institute of Music and the Cuban National Commission for UNESCO. The concert will be live streamed by UNESCO and will feature an extraordinary array of artists from around the world paying tribute to the international art form of jazz.

The musically vibrant and culturally rich city of Havana, Cuba, has been selected to serve as the 2017 Global Host City, presented each year on April 30th. In partnership with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, International Jazz Day highlights the power of jazz as a force for freedom and creativity, promotes intercultural dialogue through respect and understanding, and unites people from all corners of the globe. The day is recognized on the official calendars of both UNESCO and the United Nations. International Jazz Day programs are made possible by Toyota, the 2017 lead partner.

The All-Star Global Concert will have Herbie Hancock and Chucho Valdés serving as the artistic directors, and John Beasley and Emilio Vega as the evening’s musical co-directors. The Concert will feature stellar performances by a truly international roster of artists including Ambrose Akinmusire (United States), Carl Allen, (United States), Marc Antoine (France), Richard Bona (Cameroon), Till Brönner (Germany), A Bu (China), Igor Butman (Russian Federation), Bobby Carcassés (Cuba) Regina Carter (United States), Kurt Elling, (United States), Kenny Garrett, (United States) Herbie Hancock (United States), Antonio Hart, (United States), Takuya Kuroda (Japan), Ivan Lins (Brazil), Sixto Llorente (Cuba), Marcus Miller (United States), Youn Sun Nah (Republic of Korea), Julio Padrón(Cuba), Gianluca Petrella (Italy), Gonzalo Rubalcaba (Cuba), Antonio Sánchez (Mexico), Christian Sands (United States), Esperanza Spalding (United States), Chucho Valdés (Cuba), Ben Williams (United States), Tarek Yamani (Lebanon), Dhafer Youssef (Tunisia), Pancho Amat (Cuba), César López (Cuba) and others, with further details to be announced in the days to follow.

“UNESCO is proud to be associated once again with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, as well as with the Instituto Cubano de la Música, to raise the flag for jazz, for freedom, for creativity, for diversity and for unity. This year’s focus on Cuba is testament to the power of jazz to build bridges and join women and men together around shared values and aspirations”, said Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO.

Many acclaimed musicians and educators from Cuba and around the world will participate in free jazz performances, master classes, improvisational workshops, jam sessions and community outreach initiatives. Programs will take place at schools, arts venues, community centers, jazz clubs and parks across the city of Havana and throughout Cuba beginning on Monday, April 24th and leading up to the festivities on April 30th. Additionally, jazz history and education programs will be provided for tens of thousands of students in over 11,000 schools across Cuba. These programs will be among the thousands of International Jazz Day live performances, educational activities, and community service programs taking place in more than 190 countries on all continents.

Herbie Hancock, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue, said: “Afro-Cuban jazz and its rich history have played a pivotal role in the evolution and enrichment of the entire jazz genre. The incomparable trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie along with beloved Cuban musicians Mario Bauzá, Machito and Chano Pozo, infused American jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms to create a brand new, energetic sound that defined modern music. We are so pleased that Havana, Cuba, will serve as the Global Host City for International Jazz Day 2017. On behalf of the worldwide family of jazz musicians, educators and enthusiasts, I would like to thank the citizens of Havana and Cuba for their enormous support of this truly global musical art form.”

The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz is once again working with UNESCO and its field offices, national commissions, networks, associated schools, universities and institutes, public radio and public television stations, and NGOs to ensure their involvement and participation in International Jazz Day 2017. Additionally, in countries throughout the world, libraries, schools, universities, performing arts venues, community centers, artists, and arts organizations of all disciplines will be celebrating the day through presentations, concerts, and other jazz-focused programs.

The celebration in Havana of the International Jazz Day in 2017 marks the seventieth anniversary of Cuba’s accession to UNESCO and the foundation of the National Commission for UNESCO.

Air transportation for artists and educators provided by United Airlines, Official Airline of International Jazz Day 2017.
