musicians of the quartet Barcelona Swing Serenaders began to
perform together in 1999 playing in the Swing and New Orleans
styles, and the good understanding between them and with the
audiences led them to establish as a permanent group the following
year. Since 2001 they play every week at
del Tèxtil -at present they are doing it on Sunday
night-, they perform very often all over Catalunya and have toured
very succesfully through Andalucía, Extremadura ans Scotland.
They have recorded the CD's Someday sweetheart (DiscMedi
2002) and Saturday night function (DiscMedi 2003).
repertoire is based on tunes typical of the jazz from the 20's and
30's, newly cooked in the own way of the quartet, with the ocasional
incorporation of ideas inspired by great jazzmen such as Jimmie
Noone, Kid Ory, Barney Bigard, Duke Ellington or Django Reindhardt.
Do they perform in concerts, jazz caves, and jazz festivals, or do
they do in settings such as didactic sessions, balls, desserts or
differents kinds of celebrations, the Barcelona Sweet Serenaders
are always aiming to recreate the freshness, swing and warmth of the
most genuine classical jazz.
