Enrique Turpin is a jazz journalist and General Secretary of the Spanish Association of Literary Critics

About Me

As my mother explained to the neighbourhood, I'm the best jazz journalist of the family, and my grandparents are proud of me. I’ve got a bike the sometimes reaches the low registers of Johnny Hartman’s voice while waiting at traffic lights. I ofter dream that I’m playing the guitar solo from Grant Green’s “Idle Moments”. When I get up, I teach Spanish Literature to teenagers, even after having been writing adult literature for more than a decade in newspapers and magazines. I both work as editor of Cuadernos de Jazz and General Secretary of the Spanish Association of Literary Critics (AECL). I live in the suburbs of Barcelona.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
