The McNally Smith Fusion Ensemble performed at the “XIII Festival de Jazz de Guatemala” in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: 130313 Jazz Festival &emdash;

Wednesday night we had the opportunity to listen to The McNally Smith Fusion Ensemble performed for about an hour and a half as part of “XIII Festival de Jazz de Guatemala” at the atrium of the former college of the Compañía de Jesús in Antigua Guatemala. It was a breath-taking performance.

The “XIII Festival de Jazz de Guatemala” started on Friday, March 8, with a performance by Alessio Menconi Trio with Marco Panascia and Paolo Orlandi from Italy, but because I’ve have been overwhelmed with the transformation of the upcoming issue of REVUE magazine, I was not able to attend. Ditto for the show by Beat Kaestli of Switzerland on Thursday night. There is still one more concert by Abe Rábade Trio (Spain) on Saturday night which I do not plan to miss at all. I will bring you an update in this last presentation. Stay tuned!

    Rudy, you are so lucky. How come every time I am in La Antigua Guatemala nothing like this happens. The only decent live music that I’ve been able to find is at La Peña de Sol Latino.
    Even though this trio is an excellent jazz group, most of their music is a little bit to slow for me. I hope you enjoy their playing of “Avalancha” “Protection” “Carmencita” or ” Transito No. 3″. If would like to listen to other work by Rábade get the CD “Rosalia 21” recorded by his Abe Rábade Quartet plus other musicians including the portugues singer Misia whose voice in “Negra Sombra” and “Tembra Un Neno”adds a nice touch to Rábanes piano and Sax or her acappella in “Tecin Soia A Miña Tea”.
    I am sure you will enjoy the music from this piano player from Santiago de Compostela.
    Do let us know about your experience with the Abe Rábade Trio.

    • Thanks Luis for the recommendation. I will keep you posted on the last concert.
