Something that is constant, permanent, incessant and unstoppable. Something that lasts in time, that remains complete... And doesn’t die.
Perenne is the title of the first album by the quintet led by Pere Navarro. It was recorded in June 2016 at La Nau recording studio, in Barcelona, under the care of prestigious recording label Fresh Sound Records. This first record release is comprised by eleven tracks. All of them are original compositions by Pere Navarro who wants to bring to life his particular viewpoint of the youngest contemporary jazz through this work.
Pere Navarro Quintet
Live in Madrid
Any artist's second album is an acid test. You are supposed to have given all of you on the first one. Pere has taken the hard way, recording a live album. That is usually done once you have released a few more records. Youth is daring and blessed be it! That is the only way for fearless and bold works to come out.He picked the right venue and bandmates he trusts.
And thus, this is a wonderful album. The atmosphere, popularly known as groove, is great. That's where the secret lies. This is only the second step but... what a step!

Pere Navarro is a sensational trumpeter from Ibiza. I have followed him in his wonderful evolution in the past few years. His compositions follow academic postulates that give way to more free compositions which are full of fantasy. Jose Miguel López (Discópolis - Radio 3 RNE Spanish National Radio)
It is not a cliché to say that younger generations are the most prepared ones of all if we refer to the new talents of national jazz. For instance, that is the case of the quintet of 'twentysomethings' led by Pere Navarro. Barcelona's Milano Cocktail Bar (Review)
