‘Café Mercedes Jazz’ offers a beautiful, intimate evening in the cosmopolitan barrio of Ruzafa. It makes for a memorable night as guests enjoy a range of drinks and enjoy listening to the music of talented artists on the stage. This relaxing and atmospheric venue has a charm and energy that invites you to get lost in the music. The music room is filled with eager music lovers, chairs are pulled closer as guests slowly sip their wines or beers or refreshing gin’n’tonics as the musical evening progresses.
The lights dim as the tone is set for the evening, the mood is calm but bustling with hushed excitement. The artists capture the attention of the audience as they take over the room. We applaud their entrance and introduction with admiration as they begin a set of harmonious vocals and instrumental melodies. The strong vocals of Argentinian singer Analia Bueti, elevated the deep sound of the double bass, played by Argentinian musician Facundo Di Pietro. The overall sound was beautifully tied together by pianist Mariano Siccardi, from Mar del Plata in Argentina. They Introduced themselves as ‘La Moracha Tango Trio’. The trio invites the Valencian saxophonist Carlos Mañez to join them on stage for the evening and it is nothing short of magic. The blend of talented musicians bring their unique sound to the stage and it is a captivating set. Over the course of the evening there is a respectful silence in the audience as they admire the trio of gifted musicians fronted by a charismatic singer, interrupted only by intermittent bursts of applause.
Café Mercedes Jazz has many special evenings of live music; including their Jam Sessions on some Friday and Saturday nights. Whether you stop by for a drink or spend your entire evening listening to jazz amd more musical genres, it’s worth a visit. Check out their website to find out more!
