Biography ADDA·SIMFÒNICA ALICANTE & Josep Vicent, conductor: https://addasimfonicaalicante.es
The ADDA Simfonica and its conductor, Maestro Josep Vicent paired with pianist/composer Emilio Solla to create a marvelous symphonic homage to one of the greatest jazz musicians of all times, Chick Corea. In this double album (which was nominated this year for two Latin Grammy® awards), some of the most emblematic Chick’s compositions reach new dimensions through the orchestral textures and the contribution of top-notch soloists such as Paquito D’Rivera.
“Josep Vicent, conductor, musical director…is the creator of these fantastic projects…setting new paths towards the rich evolution of Spanish symphonic music” – Mas Jazz Digital
“Duke Ellington said that good arranging is like recomposing. I believe Emilio has recomposed all this music without damaging at all the legacy of Chick Corea, and that is something very difficult” Paquito D’Rivera
“The arranging and playing are beautifully creative and masterful; the conducting is full of energy, love, and true understanding of my hero’s Timeless Melodies and rhythms” Gayle Moran
