Twenty years ago Lluís Coloma began a musical journey. From embracing tradition to creating a personal language it has taken him to the most important stages in the world of Blues and Boogie Woogie piano.
A restless musician, Lluís is currently at a time of creative explosion in his career, breaking musical patterns and boundaries. A turning point where he naturally creates organic original themes and compositions that evoke an epic imagery, cinematic… that takes you out of conceptual thought and transports you directly and involuntarily to a sensitive and dynamicmusical dimension, all tied to the common thread of the Blues.
It’s captivating and danceable music with a clear and forceful language and a dynamic rhythm which appears fast-paced even in slow tempos, well-crafted and rich in sensations and nuances rooted in the traditions of Blues, Boogie Woogie, Rock & Roll, Classical Music, and Country… the starting points to travel new paths leading to unexplored dimensions in sound.
With the incorporation of new instruments such as percussion and a string quartet, Lluís Coloma presents his new “Musical Troupe,” where he brings together, renews and reinvents his usual formations to achieve many more textures and colors, bringing to the present music that is too-often associated with the past.
The impeccable production of prestigious guitarist and producer Jaime Stinus is without a doubt a key piece to themodern and innovative sound of this album, stretching it musically beyond the foreseeable without losing it’s deep traditional roots.
"Lluís composing meticulous and precise among hundreds of scores music made from the mind. Lluís arranging generous and responsive incorporating all suggestions
music made from the heart. Lluís recording smiling and happy still moving to the beat music made from the soul. Music born where mind, heart & soul meet a trip to everywhere."
