Variaciones is a series of composition that Javier wrote for a quintet made of some of the most renowned Portuguese jazz musicians. It is going to be Javier's second album with the support of Fundação GDA.
This project has its origins as a continuation of autotelic where the duo of guitar and piano was growing up to a quintet with the invited musicians. The jazz quintet combo allows Javier to explore in a more extensive way the possibilities of orchestration, improvisation, written music and the individuality of the musicians.
Variaciones can be described as contemporary jazz where the Latin-American rhythms, classical music and improvisation converge into a musical place where the musicians can explore their creativity and technical limits.
