Saint Andreu Jazz Band with the very cool Alba Armengou (aged 10)

If you have had a long day, be it at work, college or simply managing the home and feel stressed out, then may I suggest a small libation of the Saint Andreu Jazz Band from Barcelona. Made up of children as young as 6 through to the age of 19/20 and led by the charismatic Joan Chamorro they play they music of such big band greats as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Moten as well as more contemporary jazz musicians.

Although I have featured this band in my blog previously I make no apologies for featuring such talent again. In this case the precocious talents of the band tackle the Benny Carter number “Easy Money” and my can’t they swing.

The trumpet soloist is Alba Armengou (all of 10 years old) and you will notice her 7 year old sister Elsa, sitting at the back in the trumpet section.

If this music does not bring a smile to your face then there is no hope………………….

    I am just about to leave Barcelona after a week with Sant Andrée jazz festival and I have met these wonderful kids in person for several days. They have improved a lot 2 years later.
    Find Alba singing ” Trieste” on YouTube.
    Wow, just wow. She sang it for me, on my request yesterday.
