Although pianist Marta Sanchez originally studied to become a filmmaker, she realized during her studies that jazz was her passion and shortly after became a full-time musician in Madrid. She released her début as a leader, Lunas, Soles y Elefantes, in 2007 with her trio and moved to New York City to study jazz performance at New York University on a Fulbright Scholarship. In 2010, she released her sophomore effort as a leader, La Espiral Amarilla, which featured her quartet; this Thursday, she’ll be performing with a quintet that features a number of top-flight New York-based musicians, including Roman Filiu on alto saxophone, Jerome Sabbagh on tenor saxophone, Desmond White on bass, and Devin Gray on drums. We’re pleased to present the Marta Sanchez Quintet this Thursday as part of our début series and hope that you’ll join us to welcome this promising young pianist-composer to our stage.
