Acuarela de Paso



The beauty of the ephemeral, the
art of improvisation, the unrepeatable. “Acuarela de paso” is a canvas that continuously mutates in each and every
of its passages. Plagued with textures and musical colors quite difficult to classify
beyond the own consideration of the listener without conditions, of the one who
opens his senses and simply lets himself be embraced by the beauty that
underlies each of the seven pieces that are presented to us.


Guitarist, singer and composer, Jaby Sánchez after
participating in countless projects related to Jazz and Blues over the years
and after the edition of his first solo work “Inner Blossom”, he has
become one of the most interesting and original musicians of the scene,
permanently exploring the fields of improvisation and traveling through the
currents of the so-called contemporary Jazz from a very personal point of view.
Sánchez’s usual collaborator in different projects, flute player Marta Mansilla has a long Jazz and
Flamenco career, collaborating with artists such as Jorge Pardo, Bob Sands,
Pedro Ojesto or María Peláez.


Recorded at “La Casa de la
Madera” by Alfonso Ferrer in March 2019, “Acuarela de paso” could remind us of
the works that the German ECM label has been developing for several decades.
Approaching guitarists as great as unclassifiable as Bill Frisell or John
Abercrombie. Works where the freedom of the musician to express himself knows
no more barriers than the search for the unpredictable and the creation of
subtle atmospheres.


Entirely composed and arranged by
Jaby Sánchez, this work´s keynote places us in the way of two exceptional
musicians offering us the sharing of their creativity in each composition under
the premise of improvisation, setting up a
beautiful sound collage
where Sánchez himself  sets the guidelines on the canvas from the
beginning with “One” to travel through more dreamlike spaces by Marta
Mansilla in “Dos”. Flute and guitar´s unisons in “Aisha´s playground”
create the perfect moment for both instruments improvisation in an alternative
way. Marta Mansilla performs the first strokes in “Cuatro” to give way to
“Siete” a musical piece with obvious Blues reminiscences with Jaby Sánchez as
the only instrumentalist. “Five” travels through intimate places
until reaching “Old Lion’s Mirror” full of nuances, evolutions and
developments, ending this album.


The beauty of the unique moment,
the art of the subtle, music to be heard without conditions, full of
polychromies and essences difficult to classify beyond the very consideration
from the creators, who open their senses and let themselves be embraced simply
by beauty, giving us “Acuarela de paso”.
