Al Di Meola, main course of the Albacete Jazz Festival that will offer six concerts between November 14 and 18


The JazzAlbacete Festival will offer a cycle of six jazz concerts, from November 14 to 18, with a program that perfectly combines international figures, such as guitarist Al Di Meola, with outstanding musical projects from the local music scene.

This JazzAlbacete Festival will open on November 14, at the Teatro Circo, with a concert by Aba Taano, a gospel group from Uganda, with an amazing ability to captivate the public with their voices, rhythm and joy in abundance.

A concert where gospel is mixed with ethnic and pop songs, all a cappella, and which demonstrates why they have succeeded in the more than 1,500 concerts they have offered in 14 different countries, has stood out from the Consistory.

The next day, at the Municipal Auditorium, it will be the turn of the Déjà Vu proposal, a musical project promoted by the composer and guitarist Hernán Navarro, based in Albacete for almost three decades, which deals with the best European jazz and the sounds of New Orleans. First class musicians, such as Darío Garrido (guitar); José Manuel Badía (violin) and Agustín Lozano (double bass), accompany the guitarist in the presentation of his second album, who will also be on stage at this concert together with the Italian vocalist Linda Nordio.

On Wednesday 16, at the Teatro de la Paz, Albacete’s most international jazz musician, Juan Vinuesa, will offer the concert El Jazz y sus nuances, an educational journey through the history of jazz.


Once again, at the Teatro Circo, on November 17, the city will enjoy a magnificent concert, Lágrimas de Mujer, four women, Montse Cortés, Miryam Latrece, Alba Moreno and Alana Sinkëy, review the legendary album by El Cigala and Bebo Valdes, Black Tears.

These four female voices presented this musical proposal last spring, reinterpreting these songs that gave rise to that album that in 2003 was a revolution in that it represented a true cultural miscegenation.

The final concert of JazzAlbacete will be another of the great highlights of the festival, on November 18, the show of one of the best guitarists in the world, Al Di Meola, who will present an acoustic retrospective of his career.

Al Di Meola has a career spanning more than four decades, which has earned him critical acclaim, four gold albums, two platinum albums, more than six million record sales and several awards, including an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music and the Miles Davis Honorary Award from the Montreal Jazz Festival.

Al Di Meola will be at the Teatro Circo, the last day of the festival, at 8:00 p.m., and to bring jazz to our streets, we will have the La Inoxidable Street Band, a group made up of musicians from Albacete, touring the streets of the center until arriving at the doors of the Teatro Circo, starting at 7:00 p.m., a concert that is part of the cultural revitalization program of the new pedestrian zone.


In the presentation, the Councilor for Culture, Vicente Casañ, has made mention of the long history of JazzAlbacete, a veteran jazz festival that was born in 1980 and that after completing a first stage that culminated in 1989, was later recovered in 2003 by Cultural Albacete.

Meanwhile, the coordinator of JazzAlbacete, Pablo Correa, in turn a member of the Friends of Jazz Association, has thanked the administrations for their support and encouragement of this festival, which extends to various stages and tries to maintain its own idiosyncrasy , with an important commitment to quality programming.

Lastly, the deputy for Culture, Miguel Zamora, has underlined the potential that Albacete has in terms of scenic spaces, which has made it possible for this festival to be held on different stages, such as the Teatro Circo, the Auditorium and the Teatro de la Peace of the Diputación itself.
