Albert Cirera Albert Cirera

Albert Cirera is saxophonist famous for his vigorous sound, melodic and coarse (at the same time) musical phrasing with great style versatility. He takes part on many projects, ranging from classical jazz to the most contemporary and daring music, including pop and singer-songwriter styles.

When he was six, he started to study violin. Later, under Alfons Carrascossa’s guidance, took sax as main instrument. After many years of classical music education in Escola Municipal de Música d’Igualada and other modern musical schools in Barcelona, follows his musical training and enrolls ESMUC (Escola Superior de Musica de Catalunya), with teachers such as Eladio Reinon, Xavi Figarola, Dani Pérez, Agustí Fernández. He also moves to The Hague (Netherlands) to study at The Royal Conservatoire with John Ruocco. He finally graduates in 2007. During those years, he has been taken lessons from Tony Malaby, Ellery Eskelin, Bill Mchenry, Perico Sambeat, etc.

In 2011, he creates his own quartet, Albert Cirera & Tres Tambors. Since then, he has been playing with Duot, Agusti Fernandez Liquid Trio/Quintet, Free Art Ensemble, LandSpace, Javier Galiana & the Spice Berberechos, Wooookam, Triot, IED’8, Nelson Projecte, Asociacion Libre Orquestra, Esther Condal, El Petit de Cal Eril, etc. In 2011, Duot receives the award of AMJM (Associació de Músics de Jazz i Música Moderna de Catalunya) to the best group of the year. That same year, Enderrock awards his Nelson Project band with the Review to the Best Jazz Album of the year for “Vol.2 Mode Joe”.

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.
