Pere Navarro, trumpet player, pianist, composer and producer, is one of the brightest young talents in the Spanish jazz scene. With two albums in his discography, Navarro has managed to forge in a very short period an original, fresh, vanguard and unique sound that makes him unmistakable.

Originally from Ibiza, Pere Navarro began his love affair with the trumpet at the age of 8 and continued training at Taller de Musics in Barcelona. He has performed at numerous esteemed venues and theaters across Spain including Jamboree Jazz, Recoletos Jazz Club, Jimmy Glass, Sunset Jazz Club, Nova Jazz Cava, La Bilbaína, El Plaza Jazz Club, Sala Clamores, Sala Clavicémbalo, Caixa Forum, Teatro Avalón, Filloa Jazz Club... Also in Europe he has played in very important clubs as Pizza Express in London and in Sunset-Sunside or New Morning, in Paris. He has also been part of the line up at national festivals such as Lugo International Jazz Festival, two times, Fringe Festival, Menorca Jazz, Eivissa Jazz, Festival Alternatilla… and in international festivals as London Catalan Festival or 48Timer festival in Copenhagen, among others. 

His presence at the latest edition of Lugo's Jazz Festival was of particular note. His sold-out concert was chosen by SGAE and Radio3 (Spanish National Radio) to be broadcast live from legendary club Sala Clavicémbalo for the concert cycle "#VivaLaMúsicaViva". Pere Navarro Quintet was privileged to be the only band selected for broadcast and the only jazz band selected for the cycle.
In only 3 years, the Pere Navarro Quintet has released two albums on ‘Fresh Sound Records’. His debut album ‘Perenne’ received a very positive response and his most recent record, “Pere Navarro Quintet Live in Madrid”, was recorded live at Recoletos Jazz, one of the most important jazz clubs in Spain. In such a short period, he has been able to create his own sound as a musician and as a composer that makes his bands unique in the jazz scene.


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.

Pere Navarro Quintet
Live in Madrid

Any artist's second album is an acid test. You are supposed to have given all of you on the first one. Pere has taken the hard way, recording a live album. That is usually done once you have released a few more records. Youth is daring and blessed be it! That is the only way for fearless and bold works to come out.He picked the right venue and bandmates he trusts.

And thus, this is a wonderful album. The atmosphere, popularly known as groove, is great. That's where the secret lies. This is only the second step but... what a step!
