Enric Peidro Swingtet will be the band for Friday & Saturday!!!

Peidro has a more than extensive career playing mainstream Jazz and Swing with his tenor sax. His credentials, abundant discography and frequent collaborations with some of the best musicians in the international Swing scene show us an authentic  Jazz lover and leave little doubt about the suitability of this saxophonist to be one of the main references of the Swing and Jazz made in Spain.

Commanded by the full and round tone of Peidro’s tenor saxophone, this powerful sextet has become in just three years of existence one of the most in demand bands in the circuit of Swing and dance Festivals and Jazz Festivals.

Guided by an authentic respect and love of this music, it is not surprising that Peidro and his Swingtet have encountered the warmest  welcome on the dance circuit: both the dance aficionados and the best dancers and teachers of the international circuit have praised the Swingtet and enjoyed the joyful way of playing wich this unit generates at every gig.

A perfect Swing machine always ready to set fire to the dance floor delivering an unusual energy and  fire on his performances undoubtedly inherited from the masters wich Valencian saxophonist cites as his influences: Illinois Jacquet, Arnett Cobb, Don Byas , Paul Gonsalves Coleman Hawkins and many other tenor saxophonists who are key to understanding not only Swing music but Jazz as we know it today.
