Ximo Tebar & THE CHAMPS image
The Witchcraft of Jazz
The Champs is the new project by Ximo Tebar. This eclectic guitarist from Valencia is held by the specialized media as one of the best European jazz musicians. Each and every of his concerts is a delight for jazz and fusion lovers alike. The spectacular tandem Tebar-Bargad-Edwards produces truly elitist results by mixing sequences of pure jazz with fusion related sounds that both jazz lovers and lay audiences will enjoy.

Ximo is a new trailblazer for jazz guitar and a major new voice for the classic organ trio. He has a fresh approach to single-lines. His ideas are never boring and his powerhouse technique is inspiring. His destiny is apparent from the moment you here him play. The amazing thing is that Ximo was born and raised in Spain, which makes him a phenomenon.
George Benson, January 2005
Liner-notes CD Goes Blue

"In a lifetime there will always be personalities that stands out from the rest of humanity because of superior talent. Musically, Ximo Tebar is one of them. He has an uncanny, pervasive, tasty, harmonic and melodic concept that never overdoes any one thing so much as to make it boring and meaningless. If at this point you have not yet heard Ximo Tebar give release to his amazing guitar artistry from the vortex of his expansive, creative imagination into the medium of the air, it would be as self deprivation of the highest degree. Listen to him! He’s astounding.”

Roald Hoffmann


So, 100 years ago, Albert E. published some papers that shook the world of physics. It's the time and space to celebrate four dimensions of the man: In our own way.

Edgar's Hoover's obsession with showing that Einstein was a dangerous subversive, storyteller SHARON GLASSMAN updates Princeton's waltz toward an Einstein memorial. And the photoelectric, nonrelativistic Deni Bonet plays for Albert, on her blue electric violin.

Bob Feldman, saxophone & bamboo flute;  Chris Sullivan, bass;  Jay Rosen, drums
Born in New York City, Bob Feldman discovered jazz in the 60s through "Kind of Blue". It was a time of great creativity and change for jazz, and New York was at the center. Coleman Hawkins, Ellington, Mionk, Mingus, Coltrane, Ornette Coleman – for Bob, they were all a subway ride away.

His first instrument was clarinet, but the tenor saxophone, through Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Stan Getz quickly won him over. There were jam sessions, opportunities to sit in with Cecil Taylor, Mingus, Max Roach, Pharoah Sanders; it was a trial by fire. In the 70s Bob went to
