INVITED ARTISTS 2024
ENRIC PEIDRO SWINGTET
Enric Peidro is a self taught musician who began playing tenor at the age of fourteen.
A couple of years later he started playing in several blues and rhythm and blues bands. His interest in Jazz developed quickly and since then, Peidro has remained loyal to his musical heroes: jazz masters like Leon “Chu” Berry, Ben Webster, Don Byas, Coleman Hawkins, Benny Carter and Lester Young as well as some of their first disciples, like Paul Gonsalves, Illinois Jacquet, Zoot Sims, Charlie Ventura, Flip Phillips, Arnett Cobb, Buddy Tate or Al Cohn among many others.
Peidro’s sound and phrasing are deeply rooted in the swing-era and Jazz lovers all over Spain and Europe appreciate his honest, genuine and unpretentious approach and have pointed out the richness of his tenor sound and his knowledge of the classic jazz idiom.
Always a hard worker, Peidro’s schedule keeps him busy most of the year and as he has done for the last 20 years he keeps relentlessly exploring the legacy of the masters of tenor sax he admires, trying to find his personal voice within that musical language and delivering swinging, creative and imaginative music to audiences worldwide.

THE HOXTON – The main venue for parties and classes
Our main venue is called The Hoxton. All classes will be held there (or close to there if we need more rooms), and all parties except for the Thursday welcome party will also be held here. There is more than 400m2 of dancing space and we will divide the space into two dance rooms during day. The address is Avinguda Diagonal, 205. It’s very close to the metro station Glories (Red Line).
