Agenor Garcia Agenor Garcia

A​genor Garcia or “Age Garcia” as his friends call him, is a “sound poet”. He Usually prefers the absence of formal structure to evoke aesthetic to his music, in addition to, or in place of the prosaic ostensible meaning. “Music can express far beyond the verb.”

Agenor is fascinated by the idea of transforming the formal structure of music, which serves to stimulate the expressiveness of his performance. He cherishes the wonder and surprise that can occur from a spontaneous idea. He listens as ideas unfold, which inspires him to the next movement, but dislikes the classic concept of “improvisation” as well the term “playing by ear”. “Everybody plays by ear unless they are deaf.” Although he says that it is almost impossible not to be influenced, Garcia tries to be a stylistic individual, only concerned with technics that leads to a better texture. He often uses “free tempo” as aesthetic language, stretching the time of a single note and using rhythmic patterns as the main subject, while the melody and harmony surround as an embellishment. This method is also noticeable in the duos, were piano and the guest instrument continually exchange roles, providing an ornamental tapestry. Most of Garcia's methods are, above all, to create an atmosphere where you can almost “see the mood”. He says that music is most effective when you feel something visual, almost tactile

”I have been working with Agenor Garcia, on his latest album. Age is talented, creative and has a very refreshing approach regarding his music”. - Glen Kolotkin (Grammy Award producer)

“Garcia has a gift for injecting subtle surprises into his compositions that will delight the attentive listener. The fluidity of his solo passages and a strong commitment to melody sometimes conceal some of the harmonic and rhythmic shifts he uses, but those are precisely the elements that establish Garcia as a jazz talent in the lineage of Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett”. - Shaun Dale (JazzReview.com)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
