The album released by Quadrant “No era lluny ni difícl” Joan Margarit & Carles Margarit, has been a finalist for Best Jazz Catalan Album 2014.
“No era lluny ni difícil” is the record that contains the piece with the same name, a staged proposal in jazz and poetry intertwined with the poems of Joan Margarit and the music of Carles Margarit. The great Catalan poet recites his verses accompanied by a jazz quartet, which at times, and without altering the project’s even flow, leaves room for him to do it alone or give his poems to the voice of the singer Núria Cols. The music has been composed or adapted by Carles Margarit, who also plays the saxophone and directs the project. “It wasn’t far away or difficult” brings together in a single proposal the overwhelming expression capacity of two art forms: jazz and poetry, and is also an opportunity to revisit from the intensity of a direct performance, poems included in several books by Joan Margarit.
