For a few months now Eva Fernández has been working shoulder to shoulder with the guitarist Josep Munar creating original songs inspired by the poetry of Alfonsina Storni, Alejandra Pizarnik and Julio Cortázar, among others. In this show she presents what will be her forthcoming album: a trio where she sings and plays soprano sax accompanied by the electric guitar and the drums. The trio is the result of a search for the balance that forms the music: melody, harmony and rhythm, placing equal importance on each element. Accompanying Eva Fernández are two Mallorcans resident in Barcelona, Josep Munar and Enric Fuster. Together they seek an organic sound, putting the song centre stage without sidelining improvisation, which is something they feel very comfortable with.

Eva Fernández is a promising young Catalan jazz musician who stands out as a saxophonist and singer. Despite her youth, Eva Fernandez has gained a lot of experience in just a few years and is firmly on the list of impressive young female vocalists. She has already performed with such great names as Perico Sambeat, Dick Oatts, Ken Peplowski, Ignasi Terraza, Bobby Gordon, Jesse Davis, Terell Stafford, Wycliffe Gordon, Josep M. Farràs, Scott Robinson, Josep Traver, Matthew Simon, Llibert Fortuny, Carles Benavent and Jordi Bonell, and she has participated in various projects with Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro Group and the Sant Andreu Jazz Band. She has also taken part in jazz festivals in Barcelona, Terrassa, Porta Ferrada, Menorca, Roses, Vic and Xàbia (València) among others.

After releasing her first album That Darkness as a quintet, Eva Fernández is now playing in a more stripped down format. A trio with Josep Munar and Enric Fuster, who play fresh, contemporary, elegant jazz.
