Guitarist Ximo Tebar Interviewed at All About Jazz

Published: 2010-08-18
Ximo Tebar Musician, producer and director of his own music school, Ximo Tebar stands out as the main jazz figure in Valencia, Spain. His music and talent, however, have also given him an international stature as an excellent guitarist and composer. His frequent collaborations with some of the finest musicians in the jazz scene, the stylistic variety of his recording and his admirable work capacity make Tebar an artist worth following.

His recordings can be divided in two categories: those focused on fusion jazz, played with fairly of large ensembles where Tebar works hard on arrangements and textures; and others, where he concentrates on more orthodox jazz, normally playing in a trio, where fascinating interaction between musicians as well as impressive lead abilities can be heard. Celebrating Erik Satie (Omix Records, 2010), is devoted to classical music composer Erik Satie.

AAJ Contributor Josep Pedro spoke with Tebar about reimagining Satie in a jazz context, creating a vibrant jazz scene in Valencia, and working with a wealth of organists including Lou Bennett
