The “21st century Big Band” as they like to define themselves, not only continues to be one of the big bands with the greatest tradition in the country – an inimitable supergroup with innovative ideas bringing together different generations with an unmatched standard and track record – but this time they surprise us with a monographic show devoted to eight of the cities which have most captivated its leader, the restless Alfons Carrascosa. Accustomed as we are to listening to big bands who play repertoires of classics of the genre, with varying degrees of success, the idea of founding a very eclectic large group, capable both of swinging to the beat of known and unknown standards and advancing to groove, Latin or funky rhythms, sometimes in the company of masters of the calibre of Dick Oatts, seems a good one. Above all because what makes the BAb into a completely unique group is its capacity to present new material, written for the occasion, like this new show, dreamed up, arranged and directed by Carrascosa himself.
