    La història de Sergi Sirvent Trio comença al març de 2005 quan em van convidar a actuar amb el saxofonista tenor i baríton Charles Davis al Jamboree. Per a aquesta ocasió especial, vaig comptar amb el contrabaixista Horacio Fumero i el bateria Peer Wyboris. El concert va ser un èxit, una gran nit de música. Per a mi – que en aquell moment tenia 27 anys – tocar jazz en directe amb aquests músics àmpliament experimentats significava una lliçó molt profunda, en molts sentits. Va ser un privilegi tenir l’oportunitat de compartir escenari amb la secció rítmica de Tete Montoliu.

    Més endavant, ens van demanar altre cop que actuéssim al Jamboree amb el trio. En aquells moments Peer Wyboris estava molt malalt però encara es veia capaç de tocar, i en realitat, aquella nit quan vam actuar a trio, ningú ho hagués dit que estava malalt; el poder de la música és increïble. Per desgràcia, pocs mesos després Peer Wyboris ens va deixar. Però l’experiència estava encara latent… i jo tenia clar que havíem de mantenir aquesta idea de muntar un trio potent. I així és com arriba David Xirgu a la historia del trio. Ja havia tingut el plaer d’actuar amb ell un parell de vegades amb un quartet que vaig fer juntament amb Gorka Benítez i David Mengual, així com també havíem coincidit en el 5et de la Giulia Valle. Sempre hem tingut una connexió molt bona, així que sabia que seria una experiència increïble fer música amb ell i amb l’Horacio.

    Normalment en els projectes que he muntat interpreto les meves pròpies composicions, però aquesta vegada, per fer l’experiència més especial , vaig pensar que seria interessant re-interpretar estàndards del jazz trobant el nostre so com a trio.

    Per això l´enregsitrament en directe, com a mostra del que fem sobre l´escenari, com ens escoltem i gaudim tocant. És, de fet, el primer disc que faig en directe i és aquest fet, per a mi, un agraïment a totes les persones que van a les sales i clubs on es crea música en directe i en fan possible la seva continuïtat.

    A més, aquest disc vol ser un homenatge amb molt de “carinyu” a la memòria de Peer Wyboris. Gràcies, Peer.

about

The story of Sergi Sirvent Trio begins on March 2005 when I got the invitation to play with the tenor and baritone saxophonist Carles Davis at Jamboree. For this occasion, I called experienced musicians to join me on this special gig: contrabassist Horacio Fumero and derummer Peer Wyboris. The concert was a big success, a great nigth of music. For me -at that moment I wes 27- to play live jazz with such widely experienced musicians meant a really deep lesson, right straiht to my years. Oc course I also had the feeling of playing with the rhyhtm section of Tete Montoliu, a jazz reference in Catalonia and Spain, and there we were.

After that, we were requested to play again at Jamboree just as a trio. By that time Peer Wyboris was very ill but he would still be able to play on that trio gig, and actually when he was playing that night he seemed not to be ill at all; the power of music is amazing. Unfortunately, few months after that concert the great drummer Peer Wyboris passed away. But the experience was already there... and it was clear for me already that we had to keep that idea of a strong trio going. And that's how Xirgu arrives to the story. I had the joy of playing with Xirgu a few times begore with Gorka Benitez and David Mengual, and also in the Giuilia Valle Quintet. He was a special touch, and we had always had a very good connection, so I knew already it was going to be an amazing experience to play with him and Fumero in trio.

I usually play my own compositions in my own band and projects, but this time, to make the experience of this trio a special one, I thought it would be great to play mostly jazz standards, and to just have a nice jazzy trio sound. We played a few times in Jamboree, actually the best jazz club in Barcelona. The Sergi Sitvent Trio performed and recorded live at Jamboree, in the MAS I MAS JAZZ FESTIVAL 2011, on august 31th.

So this album wants to be an homage to the memory of Peer Wyboris, and all the blessings for him. And I also want to thanks Jamboree Staff/Mas i Mas for his continuous support to live music.
