Jerry González tour at some of the most emblematic jazz clubs in Galicia
You are in luck. You’ve already seen him in Fernando Trueba’s documentary Calle 54, and you’ve heard his fusion jazz and flamenco with Paco de Lucía, Chano Domínguez, El Cigala, Jorge Pardo, Niño Josele, and perhaps you’ve also heard him play with Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Jaco Pastorius, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente and any jazz stars willing to turn the house upside down, or perhaps you have records by his legendary Fort Apache Band, with over thirty years of experience, and awards coming out of his ears. We won’t overwhelm you with a long list of awards and nominations. You know him only too well, and are dying to see him once again on stage, as you know that’s his natural habitat, and he will pull you in, whether you want to or not. He is the best in latin jazz, but he returns with a rhythm section stronger than ever (including the great Javier Colina) to show you his personal interpretation of the standards, and also his most recent compositions. Don’t drop your guard; he will put the devil into your body.

1906 Jazz Season
1906 hosts three very intense months with a total of 50 concerts of the best jazz in some of the best jazz clubs in Spain. The 1906 Jazz Season will reach 12 cities and 16 venues with such quality artists as Brad Melhdau, Kenny Garrett, Avishai Cohen or Atomic along with many others.
The 1906 Jazz Season has always been characterised for setting jazz in its natural environment, jazz clubs, where the 1906 small great moments that the brand boasts can be fully enjoyed. In this sense, in Galicia we will be able to enjoy concerts from this Season in A Coruña (Jazz Filloa), Santiago (Dado Dada), Vigo (Xancarajazz), Lugo (Clavicémbalo), Ourense (Café Latino) and Ferrol (Bla Bla Café).
The music programme will also reach Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao and Murcia, in addition to Oviedo which is a new addition to the Season. Also, the concerts will include venues like the Teatro Principal (Santiago de Compostela) and Teatro Lara (Madrid).
