"The Sant Andreu Jazz Band is a dream come true. It is the result of sharing my passion for jazz with its members (most of whom are between 10 and 16 years old), of believing that they can do as well or better than me, of feeling like the most advanced student rather than the teacher, and of not putting limits on their abilities.
The band was formed in 2006, in the heart of the Escola Municipal de Música de Sant Andreu. Since then it has gradually developed into what it is today: a large, open musical group that is constantly evolving."
“These young people are very lucky to have someone like Joan Chamorro. It is hard to find someone who can teach people to play with so much heart and with such a wide range of musical forms. They play everything with confidence, from the oldest sounds to swing. I am incredibly impressed. I will tell everyone about these young people when I get to New York.”
