Gabriel Amargant & Manel Fortià

I was in Barcelona again for a few days with Monica and we visited several concerts. To start with we headed to the Jazz club JazzMan where we just managed to find a small spot to watch the concert of Gabriel Amargant and Manel Fortià.

Club JazzMan is a cozy bar with a second floor where the stage is installed. You can see the back of the musicians if your at the bar, but if you’re lucky (and well on time) you can find a seat on the upper floor. We were a bit stuck in the middle however, being s(r)tanded on the stairs. That did however give me a good close-up view to the band.

Gabriel Amargant and Manel Fortià play unplugged and in a classic jazz-combination: on contra bass and saxophone. Fantastic combination and they play a set of well known jazz compositions with lots of solo’s. A great start to a set of concerts in Barcelona.

Eventually they stare the little stage with a guest musician on a rhythmic box. All in all a really nice start in Barcelona!
