CONFERENCE “LOS RAROS Y EL JAZZ” (WEIRDOS AND JAZZ)
with Pedro Calvo
5:30pm – CentroCentro. Sala Begué

There’s no doubt about it: jazz is a home for weirdos. The foundations of this musical genre and this culture, which today is universal, were laid on a desire, an attitude: to have a voice of their own. Without an imaginationof its ownand without an individualised language jazz would not exist. All the great figures of jazz are eminently weird people: geniuses with something to say, with personalised navigation charts, with a lucky star to guide their every step. If they hadn’t been able to hitch their creative wagon to jazz, they would have ended up as misfits, drug addicts, lunatics, rebels with one, none or a thousand causes. This talk will cover some of the weirdest weirdos in this weird world: Sun Ra, Frank Zappa, OrnetteColeman,Mal Waldron, John Zorn, Boris Vian, Charlie Haden, Cecil Taylor, John Coltrane, Miles Davis…
