The veteran Catalonian Jazz Band, La Locomotora Negra, is celebrating its 40th anniversary. From its debut on January 31st 1971 until now, this group of friends and jazz lovers has grown to a Jazz Big Band of 17 musicians.

Throughout our journey, in addition to our usual performances, we have performed several thematic shows, shared the stage with outstanding musicians from home and abroad, written our own repertoire, and even dared to translate the poetry of Salvador Espriu into the language of Jazz.

To commemorate our 40th anniversary we have compiled 19 of our songs into the album Moments. Rather than being an exhaustive The best of..., Moments is simply a diverse sampling of our musical journey over the past 40 years. Moments is a selection of songs from La Locomotora Negras past recordings, in an attempt at thanking all those who have followed us over so many years. If you are one of these people, this compilation is ideal for reminiscing; if youre just discovering the world of Jazz, we hope this will help you get started. Be that as it may, we hope youll fully enjoy it.

__________________________________________________________

"La Locomotora Negra, la veterana orquesta catalana de jazz ha cumplido 40
años. Desde su debut como quinteto el 31 de enero de 1971, este conjunto de
amigos, amantes del jazz, no ha cesado de crecer hasta convertirse en una big band de 17 componentes.

Durante este recorrido, además de nuestros conciertos habituales, La Locomotora Negra ha presentado numerosos espectáculos temáticos, hemos colaborado con un buen puñado de músicos de aquí y de fuera, nos hemos adentrado en el mundo de la composición, e incluso nos hemos atrevido a convertir en jazz la poesía de Salvador Espriu.

Con motivo de nuestro 40 aniversario y en el contexto de los diversos conciertos y actos de celebración, la recopilación "MOMENTS" agrupa 19 grabaciones que, sin pretender ser un exhaustivo (The Best Of ...), muestran de forma variada y entretenida diferentes momentos de nuestro recorrido musical a lo largo de estos cuarenta años.

MOMENTS es, pues, una selección de temas extraídos de diversos trabajos discográficos de La Locomotora Negra, pensada para complacer a nuestro público. Ideal para el recuerdo, si sois habituales seguidores nuestros, o para el descubrimiento, si hace poco que habéis llegado al mundo del jazz o si aún os resulta un poco lejano. Sea como sea, esperamos que disfrutéis plenamente."
