PremisAMJM

Nominated for best composer, group and album of the year by the Deptford Suite project, Joan Vidal received yesterday the award for "Composer of the Year" by the Catalan Association of Jazz and Modern Music (AMJM). Based on Robertson Davies' literary trilogy, Deptford Suite (2012) is a piece which combines jazz, free and contemporary music. The suite was premiered in London and has been performed at the Festival de Jazz de Granollers, Barcelona and Andorra and the Tete Montoliu Memorial Festival in Barcelona. The composition and performance of this suite by Joan Vidal Sextet impressed the director of the Montreal Jazz Festival, who was sent to Barcelona to attend the Mercè festivity.
