The duo of Albert Sanz & Javier Colina has already toured many stages, all over the world. His repertoire, so selected and so different, and the very special way of dealing with the general internal rhythm of his concerts have managed to bring together both, already jazz fans and a new audience, often surprised by their new taste. This effort to attract other music lovers is a primary objective of the duo in its commitment to develop the cultural scene and achieve, in the longer term, that the greater influx of this new public can financially sustain the entertainment business.
After the success of their first duo album, Sampa, the followers of Albert Sanz and Javier Colina demanded the continuity of this collaboration. From there came the recording of this new album, entitled Sinhá.
Albert and Javier have already played together, after many encounters, in the quartet led by Silvia Pérez Cruz and Colina himself, with whom they toured the world seven years ago.
During the break intervals, Albert Sanz proposed and recorded his album O qué será together with Javier and the legendary drummer Al Foster, a member of the Miles Davis band for many years. Jazz developments were already intuited in that project, but on themes from Brazil, with more colorful results than in jazz.
This new work, Sinhá, whose title refers to a song by João Bosco and Chico Buarque (the duo’s main influence), this time features the stellar collaboration of Jorge Drexler on the song “Humble People” and once again includes a song played with the accordion.
The themes are again by Brazilian composers, and are treated with great affection and that particular style of these two musicians who are so relevant in the national and international jazz scene; furthermore, they are capable of filling any stage with only two instruments, as they have already shown in multiple presentations. An example is the concert recorded by TVE at the Monumental Theater in Madrid.
