“Crossing borders” talks about tradition seen from the perspective of my present. There are also new compositions that talk about humanity and my experiences as a woman … “ Eva Cortés

Crossing Borders together… I need your support and I am thankful to know that you will be on this journey with me!

I was born into a musical family that exposed me to Soul, Funk, Flamenco, Opera and Jazz. While Jazz is my mainstay, I create music that goes beyond conventional parameters and genres.

It took three years to put Crossing Borders together. It all began when I decided to leave Spain and move to New York City. The adjustment took time, but now I am now happy to have made it my home.

While here, I have had the honor of working with musicians that I have admired for many years. Roby Ameen: Drums, Jon Cowherd: Piano, Pepe Rivero: Piano/Arranger, Luques Curtis: Upright Bass, Marvin Sewell: Guitar, Luisito Quintero: Percussions, Roman Filiu: Sax/ Flute, Doug Beavers: Trombone/Producer, Jonathan Powell: Trumpet, Christian McBride: Upright Bass.

The title, Crossing Borders is inspired by an event that took place on October 03, 2013, off the southern Italian island Lampedusa, where a boat containing 500 African migrants caught fire and sank. As a result, many of the passengers drowned or are feared dead.

My seventh album demonstrates my continued growth as an artist. Also, it touches on my thoughts and feelings about the world and sends positive energy and good vibes for all to enjoy.

CRUZANDO FRONTERAS JUNTOS!
NECESITO VUESTRO APOYO Y ESTOY MUY AGRADECIDA DE SABER QUE ESTAREIS CONMIGO EN ESTE VIAJE!

He crecido expuesta a muchos estilos musicales… (Flamenco, Opera, Boleros, Soul, Funk…) Supongo que mi familia y mis circunstancias han provocado que aunque el Jazz es un componente esencial y prominente en mi música, haya muchos sabores diferentes en mis composiciones. Mi música pretende ir mas allá de los parámetros convencionales de los géneros en sí , podría decirse.

He tardado 3 años en configurar este proyecto. Todo comenzó cuando decidí  dejar Madrid y mudarme a Nueva York. El ajuste me costó algo de tiempo, pero estoy muy contenta de haber conseguido sentirme como en casa. Una vez aquí en NYC he tenido el privilegio de poder trabajar con musicos a los cuales he admirado desde siempre. Roby Ameen : Batería ,  Jon Cowherd: Piano,  Pepe Rivero: Piano,  Luques Curtis: Contrabajo, Marvin Sewell: Guitarra,  Luisito Quintero: Percusión ,  Roman Filiu: Saxo/ Flauta,  Doug Beavers: Trombón , Jonathan Powell: Trompeta,  Christian McBride: Contrabajo.

El título del tema “Crossing Borders”, que también es el nombre  del álbum , fue inspirado por un hecho terrible que ocurrió el 3 de Octubre de 2013, cerca de la costa de Lampedusa; donde un barco de emigrantes provenientes de diferentes países Africanos, se incendió y se hundió.

300 pasajeros murieron en la tragedia.

Este álbum sera mi séptimo trabajo. En el encontrarás a la Eva que conoces, con elementos nuevos agregados en estos últimos años y que me han hecho crecer como persona y como artista. Encontrarás mis pensamientos y sentimientos reflejados en las letras y en la música además de mucha mucha energía positiva y combatiente :). Espero que te guste!!!

ABOUT EVA
Eva Cortés was born into a musical family that exposed her to Soul, Funk, Flamenco, Opera and Jazz. While she admits that jazz is her mainstay, she creates music that goes beyond conventional parameters and genres.

At the age of three, the Cortés family moved from Honduras to Sevilla, Spain where flamenco was part of the fabric of everyday life. “Everybody sang, cooked and played with the windows open,” says Cortés, “it impregnates you.”

She recorded her first demo when she was four years old and appeared on the album, “Kid’s Stuff,” where she collaborated with a variety of established Spanish artists. Since then, Cortés has released six highly acclaimed recordings as a leader.

DISCOGRAPHY: In Bloom, Jazz One Night with Eva Cortes (2012), Back to the Source (2011), El Mar de Mi Vida (2010), Coma Agua Entre Los Dedos (2009) and Sola Contigo (2007).
