It is impossible to remain indifferent whilst listening to Magalí singing. Her voice is special, uniquely beautiful, and combines sweetness and character in a balanced way, instinctively, I would say. [...]

Magalí Datzira is a double bass player and a vocalist. In the second CD-DVD of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band, which she took part in the recording of when she was only 13 years old, she started to sing and we were able to glimpse an original and very personal voice. She has a very particular way of approaching tempo and melodies, reading them in a special way and confronting a score as if compass bars did not exist.

I wanted this to be an assorted album: a combination of different rhythms, different voices and textures a variety that essentially represents the different tonalities of one and the same color.

Magalí Datzira


"Chamorro is a Spanish bassist (and saxophonist) and mastermind behind this showcase for new vocalist Datzira, a youngster who combines the small-voiced fey charm of a Stacey Kent with a behind-the-beat allegiance to the phrasing of Billie Holiday. She opens with a quartet version of Someone To Watch Over Me, complete with the verse, this and the succeeding tracks adorned by the very swingy piano of Ignasi Terraza. Datzira moves into country mode with Bye Bye Love and then essays a touch of the Jobims before she tackles Softly As In A Morning Sunrise, taken at up tempo, complete with guest tenorist Scott Robinsons gruff accompaniment.

Thereafter Datzira and company move their way through an eclectic collection of songs, including Closer Walk (this with Perico Sambeats classy soprano) and Round Midnight, the backing ensembles flexing according to her needs viz. Georgia; taken as a duo with Chamorro on baritone sax. She, perhaps unwisely, chooses to scat on her brothers Give Me A Break, its author offering some West Coast-ish tenor before a gospelly version of Wade In The Water. Last of all, her small group is augmented by the Sant Andreu Jazz Band on Unchain My Heart. Surprisingly, Chamorro is the vocalist on the Baker-like I Fall In Love with Datzira crossing to the bass.

Whether Ms Datzira is the real deal remains to be seen: shes certainly ambitious and maybe needs to concentrate on a single genre rather than try to encompass them all. Look out for Andrea Motis, another Spanish youngster, who plays good boppish trumpet on several tracks."
