At 6:00 pm, we will inaugurate the Photo Exhibition of our very own César Sánchez: “The Color of Jazz in La Azotea.” This will be followed by the main course: a night of Jazz put on by our friend and drummer, Jordi Masalles. As you can see, the Sunset Jazz Fiesta is opening in style this year!
When Jordi Masalles joins us on stage at the Sunset Jazz Fiesta, we’ll not only enjoy his music but we’re also going to be treated to a chance to see his talented back-up musicians in the bargain. Every time they come back here, it is a fabulous get-together as well as a musical treat. Fernando Rodríguez De Mondesert
