AUTOEDITAT (VR MM012 02)
“Tornado” is the new album and project by Menorcan pianist Marco Mezquida, made up of 12 new compositions of his own, created for and together with his colleagues in a new trio such as the dizzying Japanese double bassist Masa Kamaguchi and the versatile Catalan drummer Ramon Prats.
“My desire with this album and new project as a leader is to create a sound journey that evokes the natural force of a tornado with a jazz trio. Feel how we enter a musical storm, an aesthetic storm, a moving trip, more intense, passionate, visceral and free.”
"Located in his own right for years at the pinnacle of national jazz, pianist Marco Mezquida honors his restless disposition and now embarks on a new adventure. At 36 years old, with a valuable discography as a leader behind him and dozens of collaborations with heavyweights in jazz, flamenco and popular music, the Menorcan musician uses the traditional piano trio with Masa Kamaguchi on double bass and Ramon Prats on drums, to explore a scale of intensities that are summarized in the title of this marvelous album" (Diario de Sevilla)
