|This jazz sounds like flamenco|

In chemistry, a mixture is a material system made up by two or more different substances which are mixed together but are not combined chemically. In music may be a jazz performance with flamenco, as is the case of the “III Festival de Jazz La Escalera de Jacob”, which in this edition is dedicated to flamenco.
From the 17th of March to the 28th of April some of the foremost artists of the Spanish jazz scene will pass through the Escalera de Jacob’s stage to contribute to the spreading of contemporary music and approaching this musical genre to new audiences, enjoying those with the reinterpretation of some great themes and the innovation from other newly created.Turismo Madrid gives to you the complete agenda of the III Festival de Jazz La Escalera de Jacob.
A proposal full of flamenco
It is what José Suárez "Pakete", former member of La Barbería del Sur, will offer on the 17th of March. He will build links between flamenco and jazz. On the stage “Pakete” will be accompanied by his brother, Israel Suárez “Piraña”, a versatile percussionist.
Yelsy Heredia, the double-bass player, will transmit the freshness and the Cuban renewal from the 50’s when the flamenco discovered the island with the guajiras or the rumbas. On the other hand, the flamenco singer David de Jacoba with his perfect sense of rhythm will be the voice of this concert.
Night of percussion
McGill Trío will delight the audience not only with the music of “Tan cerca”, their latest work in which, for the first time, the guitar acts as a single harmonic support, but also with the rhythms of their new album, just recorded in New York, but that has not yet been released.
Guillermo McGill, playing the drums, Joaquín Chacón, the guitar, and Víctor Merlo, the double-bass will turn the good melodies into the main characters of the night of the 31st of March at the Escalera de Jacob.
Miscellany on the stage
That is Mala Memoria, a group where the best musicians of each discipline converge, changing their seniority in other formations and their freshness into original songs that seem classic and classics that seem original tunes.
On the 7th of April Ana Salazar, José Luis Monzón, Antonio Serrano and Guillermo McGill will shape Mala Memoria on the stage.
Jazz, Rock, Motown and funk
The quintet responsible for putting music to the night of the 14th of April will sound to all this. With the pianist Mariano Díaz as leader, Mariano & Friends will offer a repertoire that mixes original songs composed for the group and other songs that the band appreciates.
The members of the McGill Trio, Guillermo McGill (drums) and Joaquín Chacón (guitar) will also attend the concert offered by this group. Toño Miguel will play the double-bass and the voice will be those one of Florence Begue.
Will blow the 28th of April in Madrid to bring the "III Festival de Jazz Escalera de Jacob" to a close. This year the honour will be for Jorge Pardo that, with his show, offers a refreshing view of the Spanish musical tradition.
The jazz and the flamenco will come together with the Madrilenian saxophonist, a man who loves to learn the different sounds of the places he has visited. The results are varied works that cover ranges from the Spanish pasodoble to Isaac Albéniz, without forgetting the guajiras or joropos from Latin America.
