R.I.P. Pedro Iturralde (1929-2020)

10 posts in this topic

Spanish saxophonist and clarinetist Pedro Iturralde passed away this week. He was 91 years old.

I have fond memories of the many PI concerts I attended over the past 20 years (Galileo Galileo, Central, Madrid Jazz Festival, Clamores...). I talked to him a few times and he was always gentle and communicative, even in July 2019, when he had severe hearing deficit.

A legend in the Spanish jazz landscape for more than 60 years. Second only to Tete Montoliu.

He will be sorely missed. 
 

R.I.P.

He is a new name to me, but I am intrigued.  Rest in peace.

I first had a chance to listen to him through some copies King Ubu gave me - excellent player! R.I.P.

Had this CD for a number of years. It is the only example of Iturraide's playing I have heard. Very enjoyable session.
