BO WOODY WINTER’S JAZZ LEGENDS at IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE

 

(FIX IBIZA/7AUG2013):

If there’s one thing that we here at FIX IBIZA love, it’s being involved with mind-blowing art exhibitions and highly talented artists. So, in a bittersweet announcement, we’re here to tell you that today is the last day of two really special exhibitions, both very close to our hearts.  The first, Urban in Ibiza: Sons of Warhol and the second, Bo Woody Winter’s Jazz Legends.  Two separate exhibitions, two venues, two last chances to see two amazing collections of work.

Urban in Ibiza at Agroturismo Atzaro is a project we have been deeply involved with since its beginning, five years ago. Since its anniversary event last Thursday, this edition, Sons of Warhol, has already seen the art-music-fashion concept climb the serious kudos ladder so much the higher, with exclusive works of some of the world’s undeniably greatest street artists including Banksy, Shepard Fairey (Obey) and Inkie, to name but three from many, many more… 

You are very much invited to attend the final evening of exhibition tonight from 7pm, in the Atzaro Gallery. We shall probably also raise a glass to the show’s inspiration – Andy Warhol, who would have celebrated his 85th birthday yesterday, RIP, Mr Warhol. Next Stop, Ocean Beach Club…*

Meanwhile, over in the San Antonio Hills, another jewel nestles, a veritable jazz fest in Freddie’s Suite at Ibiza Rocks House in the form of Dutch artist Mr Bo Woody Winter’s Jazz Legends exhibition- a collection of 18 breathtaking paintings, representations of self confessed Jazz Junkie Winter’s own Jazz Heroes. Since its Vernissage last week at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes,  the exhibition has received rave reviews from press and public alike. A must see !
Bo is back on the island in October with his second art collection, DJ ICONS to be shown at Agroturismo Atzaro but more on that later…*

 

So, for those who missed the Vernissage of one or the other, or, shame on you- both, do take our advice and squeeze in a visit to Ibiza Rocks House and/or Agroturismo Atzaro somewhere along your journey today.

You’ll thank us later….

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE/PIKES HOTEL presenta ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ por BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE MARTES 30 JULIO, 20,00h

EL ARTISTA REVELA EN EXCLUSIVA SU HOMENAJE DE 10 METROS A LA MÚSICA JAZZ

La exposición permanecerá hasta el 08 de agosto

 

(FIX/Ibiza 29 Julio 2013): Ibiza Rocks House en Pikes Hotel, sin duda reconocido como el Hotel de rock n roll por excelencia en esta isla de música, es el sitio donde desde sus comienzos hace 33 largos años, los músicos mas reconocidos se han alojado para relajar y/o seguir la fiesta con los más marchosos.

Pero dejemos de lado de momento el Rock n Roll. Nuestros oídos se aguzaron y notamos en las manos un hormigueo al ritmo de jazz cuando nos enteramos de lo último que tendrá lugar en Ibiza Rocks House este Martes 30 julio- la “vernissage” de ‘LEYENDAS DE JAZZ’, exposición del célebre artista holandés, BO WOODY WINTER. Una colección de 18 piezas representando la historia del jazz, que permanecerá expuesta la Suite de Freddie Mercury en el Pikes hotel hasta el día 8 de Agosto. Veréis, a veces el Ibiza Rocks rueda por un camino diferente y baila al ritmo de una melodía diferente…

La exposición, por primera vez en España, es la culminación de varios años de pintar sin parar. Años bañados en la sangre, el sudor y las lágrimas de Woody Winter. Además de los 16 retratos individuales, se verá su última obra maestra, un homenaje de 10 metros de largo a la música jazz y a sus héroes.

Entre ellos: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding son algunos de los músicos retratados en JAZZ LEGENDS. Todos leyendas en sí, la música Jazz representada por los mejores.

Esta última exposición de Bo Woody Winter viene pisando los talones de su reciente exhibición en el Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, considerado el mayor festival de jazz internacional en el mundo. Allí, en 2011, Bo Woody Winter conoció a sus héroes-Marcus Miller y Toots Thielemans. Ambos ahora dueños de sus retratos realizados por Bo. Director del Art Show del Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, Wim van Zon también juega un papel importante en los exposiciones de Woody Winter en Ibiza y también presentará una introducción visual a las obras de Bo este mismo martes.

Aparte de su pasión inicial, el adicto de jazz, Winter también tiene una trayectoria profundamente arraigada en la escena de la música de baile de Holanda.Hace poco completó una segunda colección de pinturas bajo el nombre de DJ LEGENDS cuya revelación a un público exigente ya se ha confirmado para octubre 11 en Agroturismo Atzaró, Sant Joan. Como introducción a este segundo evento en octobre, este martes también incluirá la presentación de un retrato de la mano de la artista a las manos del DJ internacional Sarah Main.

Además de una introducción al artista y la presentación orgullosa de su gigantesca pintura 10 metros de largo, Ibiza Rocks House nos invitara a cócteles a partir de las 20,00h, que se sirve con la música de la mejor jazz de la Muriel Grossman Cuarteto. Y mientras que todo lo que está pasando, Bo le realizará una pintura en vivo en la Plaza Mayor de Ibiza Rocks House de una de la innegablemente más talentoso mujeres de jazz -Nina Simone.

Para los que quieren aún más golpecitos de pies, DJ Stray Kitten y Twisted Ace se pondran sus auriculares tocando una selección de swing, jazz, blues y soul.

Por último, en una adición muy agridulce para el evento, Bo Woody Winter dedicará la exposición “Jazz Legends ‘a su padre, que muy lamentablemente perdió su batalla con el cáncer hace solo unos dias. Por lo tanto, Bo se subastará su famoso ‘traje de colores “en Ibiza Rocks House y donar las ganancias a la investigación del cáncer. Gran traje, gran gesto. DEP Sr. Winter Sr.

En definitiva, un eventito muy guay para los enterados, para los amantes de jazz y de arte,sin olvidar a los sospechosos habituales- los” party people” de Pikes ( ya sabeís quienes sois)…Así que manos “Jazz” preparaditos, Ibiza Rocks Hotel se convierte en taberna clandestina americana “speakeasy”.

It ISN”T rock n roll- but we love it!

¡NO es rock n roll, pero nos encanta!.

‘JAZZ LEGENDS’: AN ART EXHIBITION BY BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE TUES 30 JULY, 8PM

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE @ PIKES HOTEL 

 EXCLUSIVE UNVEILING OF ARTIST’S 10M HOMAGE TO JAZZ GREATS

w/ MURIEL GROSSMAN QUARTET + DJ STRAY KITTEN

(FIX IBIZA/ 29 JULY 2013): Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel is undeniably the rock n roll hotel of choice on this, the Mediterranean island of music, a place where every musician worth his salt has laid his weary head and/or partied on with the best of them, ever since the beginning of its 33 year history. But Rock n Roll aside, our ears definitely pricked up and our jazzy hands began to tingle when we heard about the latest happening to take place up at Ibiza Rocks House thisTuesday 30 July.

See, sometimes, Ibiza Rocks rolls down a different road, dances to a different tune – and this Tuesday is a perfect example of what we mean, with the unveiling and vernissage of celebrated Dutch artist, Bo Woody Winter’s ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ exhibition, a collection of 18 pieces depicting the History of Jazz and which will remain on show in Freddie’s Suite at the hotel until 8 August.

526446_424606600914961_66614430_n

The exhibition, being shown for the first time in Spain, is a culmination of several years of endless painting, bound together by the blood, sweat and tears of Woody Winter and apart from the 16 individual portraits includes his latest masterpiece, a 30ft long homage to jazz and Winter’s own jazz heroes.

Amongst the names- Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding – all legends in their field. Jazz represented by its finest figureheads and just some of the musicians portrayed in ‘Jazz Legends’.

This latest exhibition by Bo Woody Winter comes fresh on the heels of the artist’s recent show at the North Sea Jazz Festival, considered the biggest international jazz fest in the world. It was there in 2011 that Bo Woody Winter met his heroes -Marcus Miller and Toots Thielemans- both now have Bo’s portraits of them on their walls. North Sea Jazz Festival’s Art Show Director, Wim van Zon also plays an important role in Winter’s Ibiza exhibitions and will also present a visual introduction to Bo’s work this Tuesday. After its inauguration, the ‘Jazz Legends’ series will remain in Freddie’s Suite until 8 Aug.

Aside from the jazz junkie’s obvious first love, Winter also has a deeply rooted history in Holland’s dance music scene, and has recently completed a second collection of paintings under the moniker DJ LEGENDS, already confirmed to be revealed to the discerning public on October 11 at Agroturismo Atzaro, Sant Joan. As an introduction to this second event, this Tuesday’s vernissage will also include the presentation from the artist to international DJ Sarah Main.  But more on that later…

Back to Bo on the Rocks and the plan for this Tuesday. Apart from an introduction to the artist and the proud presentation of his mammoth 10 metre long painting, Ibiza Rocks House will be pulling out the stops and putting on the Ritz with cocktails from 8pm,  served to the tune of the finest jazz from the Muriel Grossman Quartet. Whilst all that is going on, Bo will also do a live paint in the hotel’s Plaza Mayor of one of jazz’s undeniably most talented females- Nina Simone.

For those who want even more, DJ Stray Kitten will be taking up the gauntlet/headphones in Freddie’s Suite playing a selection of swing, jazz, blues and soul.

Lastly, in a very bittersweet addition to the event, Bo Woody Winter will dedicate ‘Jazz Legends’ to his father, who very sadly lost his battle with cancer only last week. Bo will therefore be auctioning his famous ‘splatter suit’ and donating the proceeds to cancer research. Great suit, great gesture.

All in all, a very cool little happening for those in the know, for those who love jazz and those that love art and of course, not forgetting, the usual suspects- the Pikes party people- you know who you are…Jazzy Hands at the ready, Ibiza Rocks House turns speakeasy.

 

It ISN’T only Rock n Roll- but we love it!
