Giulia valle group

It's Barcelona that is the main artery of the Spanish jazz scene, with major festivals and clubs like The Jamboree, several schools and academies and the Fresh Sounds New Talent label. Bassist Giulia Valle is an important fixture of all the above, and has made four CDs as leader for FSNT, the latest of which, Enchanted House, evinces both an individual composer and a gifted bassist. Barcelona's acknowledged kinship with the New York scene and Valle's own study sojourns with musicians like Scott Colley percolate through her inclusive compositions and plangent bass sound, though other colours are here too, drawn perhaps from her work with leading flamenco artists like singers Miguel Poveda and Mayte Martin. Her group for 12 Points! includes fellow Catalans Martí Serra (sax) Miguel "Pintxo" Villar (Sax), Sergi Sirvent (Pno, Rhodes, Tpt,) and David Xirgu (dms).
