They are based in Barcelona. I've heard a lot of young people's jazz bands over the years, and these people, aged 7-20, easily beat them all.

I have heard great young jazz bands before, but the youth of the musicians almost always shows up when they take solos. The self confidence needed for that takes years to develop. Not here! The bandleader must have a real gift.

Holy Moly!  I watched a half a dozen of those videos and those kids are amazing.  So cool that the jazz greats playing today take time to work and perform with the Sant Andreu Jazz Band.

Thanks, Russell!
