This album of mostly original songs by Bernat Font brings an exciting new sound  to the jazz world. I was extremely impressed when I saw Bernat live with his trio recently in Barcelona. They have managed to capture that feeling and good vibe on this recording.

Bernat plays with great swing and technique but is also a unique and original voice on the piano. His compositions delight with their often mysterious twists and turns and never leave the listener feeling bored or unchallenged! He also is a master at using space, allowing the music to breath. Bernat Font is a welcome voice on today’s jazz scene and this recording manages to avoid licks and cliches. This is a delight in today’s music world.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Bernat Font, a banda de bon músic, es reivindica amb aquest treball com a gran narrador. Perquè el que compon una melodia no deixa d’explicar una història. I escriure’n unes quantes, tocar-les, juxtaposar-les i embotir-les dins d’un CD és proposar un viatge per etapes.

Font ha escrit música per a curtmetratges i documentals. I es nota. Aquest disc instrumental podria funcionar sense problemes com a banda sonora d’una obra audiovisual. El que els cinèfils en diuen una road movie. Una pel·lícula on el viatge no només es fa a través de l’espai i el temps. També és un periple interior pel que passa el trio de Bernat Font.

A banda del piano també hi sentireu la bateria del Martí Elias i el contrabaix del Joan Motera. Ens proposen un viatge que dura exactament una hora i onze segons. La mateixa durada que el trajecte Barcelona-Viladecans en un tren de Rodalies. Després d’escoltar atentament aquest CD, faig el mateix que el Bernat Font en aquesta nova aventura: em trec el barret.
