The campaign aims to enable the recording and editing of the album "Big Band Junior embraces Sassetti". It is the 3rd album of BBJ and it has 100% Portuguese repertoire.

In 2018, the country's youngest jazz orchestra rehearsed a 100% Portuguese repertoire, dedicated mainly to the music of Bernardo Sassetti, with the aim of making his music known to the younger generations, and complemented by themes and arrangements of other Portuguese composers.

For this "hug to Sassetti", BBJ invited the singer Rita Maria and also Inês Laginha and Filipe Raposo, both pianists and composers.

The debut of the project that in April 2018 almost sold out the main hall of the São Luiz Teatro Municipal surprised us all by the elegance of the music, by the strength of the arrangements, by the magic brought by the guests, but above all by the maturity with which this group of young musicians seized the music of Bernardo Sassetti and the music of other composers.

Thus was born the desire to record on disc this special moment of the life of the orchestra. Despite being the 3rd album by BBJ, it is the first time that the great majority of these young musicians record a record in a professional environment, and for many it is the fulfillment of a dream and a 'giant step'.

The disc repertoire includes 6 songs by Bernardo Sassetti and 5 songs by other Portuguese composers, including a commission to Inês Laginha.

    BBJ Abraça Sassetti - Faltam 4 dias - Passem a palavra!!

    Ex.mos apoiantes da Big Band Júnior,

    Antes de mais, aproveito para agradecer novamente o vosso apoio!

    A nossa campanha de crowdfunding está quase a terminar e ainda nos falta completar 30% do objetivo proposto. Mais concretamente falta angariar cerca de €2000 para a campanha ser financiada na sua totalidade. Relembramos que este é um modelo "tudo ou nada", ou seja, se no final da campanha faltar um cêntimo para atingir o montante inicialmente estipulado perdemos todo o financiamento!

    Nós estamos a fazer todos os esforços na divulgação desta campanha. Nas redes sociais, newsletters, por telefóne, pessoalmente, etc. Mas não é suficiente.

    Por esse motivo, vimos solicitar a vossa participação activa nestes quatro últimos dias para divulgar junto de familiares, amigos, colegas, etc, esta campanha de angariação de fundos.

    Não esquecer que qualquer contributo acima de 15 euros tem uma contrapartida física. Neste caso é um exemplar do CD "BBJ Abraça Sassetti". Este disco só sairá em Abril, por isso este contributo por ser tido como uma compra antecipada do disco.

    Na página da campanha (htts://ppl.pt/bbj) estão descritas todas as contrapartidas consoante o montante oferecido.

    Também importante é sublinhar o quão simples é fazer o contributo, pois a plataforma PPL disponibiliza diversas formas de pagamento: transferência, paypal, multibanco, etc.

    Aqui fica o link para a página da campanha https://ppl.pt/bbj
    E um link para a mesma página, mas em inglês: https://ppl.pt/en/bbj

    Acreditamos que com a vossa ajuda vamos conseguir alcançar os 100% de apoios e conseguir o financiamento para a edição do disco BBJ Abraça Sassetti!

    Em nome de todos os músicos e equipa da BBJ, muito obrigado!!
