Lluís Coloma and Carl Sonny Leyland first met nearly 20 years ago at the Boogie Woogie Festival in LaRoquebrou, France. After that initial meeting, their paths crossed on numerous occasions and a mutual admiration and close friendship developed.
Now, they have the opportunity to present this collection of duet recordings. Considered to be two of the most original and creative pianists in the blues and boogie genre, Carl Sonny & Lluís know the tradition intimately, but are not afraid to introduce new elements which they incorporate in a truly organic and natural way. While these two players and composers each have their own very defined and personal sounds, they join together seamlessly here for a musical conversation filled with creativity, spontaneity, and virtuosity.
Carl Sonny Leyland & Lluís Coloma present in these recordings an innovative mix of tradition and modernity that will transport the listener to unexpected places full of magic and complexity.
