Xavi Torres trio
Great European promise on piano presents new jazz album.
The Catalan pianist Xavi Torres masters jazz as well as classical and flamenco. During the first lockdown of the pandemic, he challenged himself by writing a new piece of music every day for a month. The result now appears on the album 'Quarantena Songs', on Dox Records. The thirty compositions reflect all the mixed feelings of that time, from sadness and hope to nostalgia and gratitude.
Xavi Torres recorded the album with two different star formations. One trio with the Cuban double bass player Reinier 'El Negrón' Elizarde, who collaborated with Chucho Valdés, and the Catalan drummer Andreu Pitarch, who played with Miguel Zenón, among others. In the second trio, with which Xavi now performs with us, we recognize two much sought-after accompanists, Clemens van der Feen on double bass and Jamie Peet on drums. The three jazz virtuosos have been playing together for six years now and their performances are characterized by power, nuance and attention to detail.
