We put Jazz to the Mobile World Congress

During the week of the Mobile World Congress we propose two sessions of live Jazz in the Zinc Bar. 

On Thursday at 7pm the pianist Max Villavecchia will offer his excellent technique. 

On Saturday we will have the duo formed by Manel Fortià and Elisabet Raspall.

Jazz is the most significant form of musical expression in American culture and outstanding contribution to the art of music. From obscure origins in New Orleans over a century ago, the music and the word we use for it are now familiar the world over. Like the self-motivating, energetic solos that distinguish the genre, Jazz continues to evolve and seek new levels of artistic expression. In slightly over one hundred years, this evolution has given birth to approximately two dozen distinct Jazz styles. Jazz music draws from life experience and human emotion as the inspiration of the creative force, and through this discourse is chronicled the story of its people. Jazz musicians and those that follow the genre closely, can indeed be thought of as an artistic community complete with its leaders, spokesmen, innovators, aficionados, members and fans.

"The real power of Jazz is that a group of people can come together and create improvised art and negotiate their agendas... and that negotiation is the art"
- Wynton Marsalis from 'Jazz', a film by Ken Burns.
