Javier Vercher


JAVIER VERCHER (1978) BIOGRAPHY by MICHAEL HILL Tenor saxophonist Javier Vercher, is a pure-hearted jazz man, whose approach embraces both the avant-garde and the old school. The Williamsburg, Brooklyn émigré relishes free playing for its unpredictability and intuitiveness, the feeling of discovery, and the instant rapport with his fellow players. But his gradually unfolding soundscapes also have an emotional gravity to them and, at times, a palpable sense of the spiritual. Each is a wordless narrative; the starting point is often real life. One of his songs,“Wish You Were Here,” for example, was inspired by his recent travels through South America backing up Pop Star Alejandro Sanz

Joe Sturges: Awareness

Read "Awareness" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Awareness is the debut EP of Joe Sturges, a Madrid-born, Anglo-Hispanic drummer and composer. Four tracks and seventeen minutes of music offer a brief but tantalizing glimpse into Sturges' compositional mind, one as influenced by classical romanticism and minimalism as it is by jazz. A quintet of players deployed in changing quartet and duo settings suggest ...

Javier Vercher: Wish You Were Here

Read "Wish You Were Here" reviewed by Geannine Reid

Pushing the limits of jazz is where saxophonist Javier Vercher resides, creating in a world full of experimentalism and melodicism, but creativity and heartfelt music is the unifying thread. On Wish You Were Here (MUSIKOZ), customary jazz is given an overhaul, flirting with dissonant or uneasy textures. In other words, it actually tosses jazz back into ...

Javier Vercher - Ferenc Nemeth: Imaginary Realm

Read "Imaginary Realm" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

L'immagine di copertina--un grattacielo senza identità con inquietanti ciminiere per sfondo--e quella interna--una figura accovacciata sulla sabbia che osserva un cane divertirsi sulla battigia--pur essendo accomunate dalla stessa tonalità di grigio esprimono un evidente contrasto prospettico e qualitativo. Qualità che si ritrova sicuramente in questa incisione, grazie alla sensibilità messa in mostra dal sassofonista Javier Vercher ...
