Ventana Abierta Jazz Club: No Land Trio en Concierto, 27 Apr.
Juanma Domínguez (double bass), Aitor Bravo (drums) and Jorge Fernández (piano)
From the País Vasco, this band comes to Nerja for the first time. His music, inspired by the great piano trios of jazz history (Bill Evans, Keith Jarret, Fred Hersch, Brad Mehldau …), convert their repertoire into their own compositions, as well as some arrangements of original themes.
His style is strongly marked by the multiple musics that have developed during his musical career. Thus, the training, which starts from a purely jazz and communicative point of view, goes through different approaches to jazz such as free jazz or modern jazz, through classical music or flamenco.

Gmail Users Alert: Google Knows What You’ve Purchased by Scanning Your Emails. Twitter users have discovered that Gmail is scanning email receipts to link non-Google purchases to a user’s Google account. Google uses this data to list individual purchases inside a user’s Google account and also shows additional information for some purchases. It’s not clear how long Google has been collecting this purchase data or how to opt-out of this data collection. The data shows individual purchases and supporting information for some purchases which can include subscription details and estimated fulfillment times for physical goods. Google says that the sources for this purchase data include “order receipts or confirmations received in Gmail”. It’s unclear how long Google has been collecting this data but one Twitter user claims their account shows five years of purchase data.
You can currently view this “Purchases” data inside your own Google account by selecting the “Manage purchases” option under the “Payments and subscriptions” section of myaccount.google.com. You can also see the source for each purchase by selecting “Info” and then “Where’s this from?”
Overall, this “Purchases” data revelation is yet another stark reminder of just how much intimate information Google collects about us on auto-pilot.
So, if you’re not happy with this data collection and want to switch to an email provider that respects your privacy, try Protonmail.com. It doesn’t scan or mine your emails or personal data.
