My old flame
MARCO MEZQUIDA & MANEL FORTIÀ
JAZZ / LATIN-JAZZ
AUTO EDITADO (VR MMMF001 02)
Marco Mezquida and Manel Fortià join in this explosive duo to transmit their particular way of understanding improvisation and on-stage interaction through small format, mixing freejazz moments with well-known melodies, hypnotic rooves with flamenco airs and percussive moments with some classics of boleros, for example.
It is not a conventional piano and double bass duo, since, in a concert of his, anything can happen, both from the musical and the instrumental point of view, and surprising colors and timbral resources can appear at any time, which will make the trip is even more pleasant and charming for the viewer.
My Old Flame is the first album by Marco Mezquida and Manel Fortià that includes some of their experiences in this long period of personal growth, creation and constant complicity. It is a kind of musical photography of a landscape, where moments of peace and harmony alternate with others of more energetic and passionate. A followed by fresh and beautiful melodies that accompany us from one climate to another naturally and organically, as if it were a novel.
Original compositions, standards, free, popular songs ... is a summary of what we can find, always starting from improvisation and musical interaction.
