This second CD of "Joan Chamorro Presenta" is one more thing that makes me proud of my work. Eva Fernández is a musician since I met her, at age 7. She has always showed outstanding ability and sensibility. Her 'Petite Fleur' in the Sant Andreu Jazz Band's first CD, with her friend Andrea Motis, has moved me a lot of times and has made me feel proud of her. Her alto sax sound is clean and powerful, and her work as a lead of the saxophone section is brilliant.
Eva is a soprano, alto and baritone saxophonist as well as clarinetist. On this record we can enjoy her good work with the soprano and alto saxophones, but what really stands out is her voice, which has a characteristic and special timbre that she modulates depending on what she wants to communicate. Her performer and jazz musician condition also allows her to express all sort of melodies in a different way.
