"AMIS & FRIENDS DU SANT ANDREU JAZZ BAND" is the website that we have just developed, to promote the Sant Andreu Jazz Band (SAJB).
The SAJB is a jazz orchestra born in the Sant Andreu district of Barcelona in 2006 under the direction of Master Joan Chamorro. A project born from the vision of Chamorro who believed in didactics for children based on listening and participation.
In December 2022, the SAJB celebrated its 16th anniversary. Sixteen years of magical results recorded in over 50 CDs and DVDs (latest, "Jazzing 12" Volume 2)
Chamorro's idea and foresight have led more than 70 young people between the ages of 7 and 21 to form an orchestra and contribute to the pursuit of a common experience.
The success of Joan Chamorro's project is illustrated by the many videos on his YouTube site which have aroused the enthusiasm of spectators-listeners for his pedagogy and the extraordinary quality of the interpretations of each young musician and the cohesion of the group.
Why create this Website?

The main objective of this association is to financially help the SAJB, by participating in the costs of its Jazzing-Festival organized in Barcelona each year in September, as well as in the production of CDs, and many other actions. ...
