Catalan-born, Amsterdam-schooled composer and bandleader, Alba Careta is a fine trumpeter and a vocalist capable of powerful emotional connection whether singing words or wordlessly. “Fresh music with depth and a lot of energy,” wrote one US commentator of “Alades” (2020), Careta’s second album. Her debut, “Orígens” (Blue Asteroid Records, 2018) won Catalonia’s Enderrock Prize for Best Jazz Album of the year. When she describes her compositional method, that sense of freshness comes across very strongly: “Every time I compose it will be about the sensations, the feelings, the colours I have in that moment.” Jazzaldia have described her as “one of the leading lights of contemporary Spanish Jazz.”Alba Careta (tpt, voc), Adrià Claramunt (dr), Lucas Martínez (tenor sax), Roger Santacana (p), Giuseppe Campisi (db)
