Jazz festival: “3 en el Paraiso”.
Eva Jiménez Quartet (Jazz Vocal)
Date: Wednesday, September 4th. 10pm
Place: Hotel Paraíso del Mar, C/ Prolongación Hernando de Carabeo, 22, next to the Parador de Nerja
Price: € 15’00.
Last concert of the jazz festival “3 in Paradise” on this occasion we will enjoy the unique voice and personality of Eva Jiménez who presents her new project in which she shares the stage with three exceptional musicians: Louis-René Kouki Portellano (piano), Markus Schneider (double bass) and Adrián Jiménez (drums).
Jazz singer, pianist and composer, Eva Jiménez stands out for its musicality and sensitivity. At 21 years old she has performed at important festivals, theaters and halls in New York, Boston, Switzerland, Italy, Germany with musicians such as Ben Street, Ben Solomon, Mike Kanan, Mark Turner or Peter Bernstein. Her style, based on improvisation and marked by his honesty in interpretation, makes him delve into areas that are usually little explored. Renowned for rescuing forgotten songs from the history of Jazz, select a repertoire in which unusually interpreted Jazz standards stand out, own compositions and reinterpretations of avant-garde Jazz musicians.
