On Thursday, March 14th at 7 pm, in the David Russell Auditorium of the Cmus Profesional in Vigo, we lived very beautiful and exciting moments with the students who participated in the master classes of improvisation taught by the Portuguese guitarist André B. Silva, in addition to the trio music that this great musician played accompanied by our colleagues Oscar Rodriguez (double bass) and David Outumuro (drums).

The students, who went out to improvise in trios, applied the knowledge learned in the course, and the curious thing is that these trios were formed at the moment of the recital by drawing lots made by André B. Silva himself. Each trio’s only instructions were to listen to each other, enjoy themselves and play for about 3 minutes with a clock in front of them. Despite the nerves, all the groups did really fascinating things, so, from the Erasmus+ Team we can only congratulate them and encourage them to get together and continue applying the techniques learned.

Also some students from the Introduction to Jazz and Improvisation class came out to play the song Cantaloupe Island by pianist Herbie Hancock and a blues in B Flat.

In the last part of the recital, André B. Silva played in trio with Oscar Rodriguez and David Outumuro, who kindly and without hesitation accompanied him for the occasion, the songs How Deep is the Ocean by Irving Berlin, Triste by Tom Jobim, Oleka by André B. Silva himself, and I mean you by Thelonious Monk.

Here are some images of the recital
