Rita Payés (14-15 years old, while recording) is a trombonist and singer, but mostly shes music, in every sense of the word, and a great person. Shes the main character of this fourth album of the series Joan Chamorro presenta.
«She joined Sant Andreu Jazz Band only one year ago, and Ill never forget the emotion she caused me when I heard her sing Stars fell on Alabama for the first time (issued as part of this record), with a very personal voice, sometimes sharp, sometimes broken, nuanced, perfectly toned and rich in rhythmic contribution. Plus, as a trombonist, she has a clear sound, round, very direct.»
