Ignasi Terraza returns, to trio. And no, we have not forgotten to announce the double bass player, but it is precisely the absence of this instrument that Terraza intends to explore, with Andrian Cunningham and Esteve Pi, and against the background of historical formations such as Benny Goodman with Teddy Wilson, Lester Young with Nat King Cole and Bill Pierce with Hank Jones. The Barcelona pianist, one of the most internationally recognized European jazzmen, combines his extraordinary technique, exquisite sensitivity and the swing he treasures, with another jazz major: Adrian Cunningham.

Born in Australia, saxophonist Cunningham lives in New York and has made a career with the likes of Wycliffe Gordon and Wynton Marsalis. The third vertex is the drummer Esteve Pi, a regular in the Ignasi Terraza and Andrea Motis groups, among others. A new trio by Ignasi Terraza to enjoy a high-flying jazz session. Have no doubt.

Press reviews

"In the Unusual Trio, Ignasi Terraza, backed by reed player Adrian Cunningham and drummer Esteve Pi, explores the trio formation without bass, showcasing the powerful left hand of Terraza, the multi-instrumentalism of Cunningham, and a resulting groove that is both fresh and light, with a repertoire ranging from Swing to Hard Bop (and including some Brazilian music), all firmly rooted in the jazz tradition."
