Pere Navarro began his love affair with the trumpet when he was only eight years old. He began his professional studies in Ibiza and continued his training at Taller de Musics in Barcelona. That’s where he recently graduated from his higher studies.

Palau de la Música Catalana, Jamboree, Nova Jazz Cava, El Plaza Jazz Club, are just some of the stages where Pere Navarro has already played at, among other theaters and auditoriums around Catalonia. He has also been part of the line up at festivals such as Barcelona’s International Jazz Festival, Lugo Jazz Festival, ViJazz or Eivissa Jazz; where this year, in 2016, he celebrated his tenth time playing at the island’s festival. He did so as a member of the 'Eivissa Jazz Experience', led by Abe Rábade, who has collaborated on two tracks of Perenne.

His presence at the latest edition of Lugo's Jazz Festival should be pointed out. His concert was chosen by SGAE and Radio3 (Spanish National Radio) for the concert cycle "#VivaLaMúsicaViva", being Pere Navarro Quintet the only national jazz band selected. The sold-out concert was broadcast live on Spanish National Radio from legendary club Sala Clavicémbalo.

He’s not only a great leader, he’s also a recognized sideman. He has played along bands such as Eva Fernández Group or the Original Jazz Orchestra (directed by David Pastor), amongst others. He has also played with musicians like Jorge Pardo or Joachim Kühn.

Pere Navarro (Ibiza, 1994)

Perenne

Something that is constant, permanent, incessant and unstoppable. Something that lasts in time, that remains complete... And doesn’t die.

Perenne is the title of the first album by the quintet led by Pere Navarro. It was recorded in June 2016 at La Nau recording studio, in Barcelona, under the care of prestigious recording label Fresh Sound Records. This first record release is comprised by eleven tracks. All of them are original compositions by Pere Navarro who wants to bring to life his particular viewpoint of the youngest contemporary jazz through this work.
