Lluís Capdevilla trio

Lluís Capdevilla trio

Spanish-born jazz pianist Lluís Capdevila brings the music from his debut album, Diaspora.

Inspired on the emotions that came thru since he moved to New York in 2007, and the dispersion of his generation, Diaspora (2016) was recorded at Tedesco Studios in New Jersey and mastered at Sear Sound studios in Manhattan by multi-award Grammy winner Jeremy Loucas. The album was funded through a Kickstarter campaign and released through the independent label CD Baby Pro.

Lluís, Petros and Luca came as a result of playing consistently at the Harlem Tavern in Manhattan. They all have been living in NYC for around a decade only to do music. Petros has pointed as emerging talent by Downbeat Magazine and Luca works with Juilliard School of Music internationally. The trio just toured Spain last April, with concerts at the Pau Casals Auditorium and the Keyboard Jazz Lounge, among others.

About Lluís Capdevila

Lluís Capdevila grew up surrounded by the vineyards of El Priorat, near the Mediterranean Sea (Catalonia, Northeast of Spain.) His search for freedom, expression and creativity connected him to improvisation, composing and jazz music. He graduated from the Aaron Copland School of Music, with the help of a Fulbright grant.

Based in New York City, he has performed with established musicians Ray Anderson, Philip Harper, Ugonna Okegwo and Elliot Zigmund and emerging talents Stan Killian, Bryan Copeland and Kush Abadey in venues like the 55 Bar, Harlem Tavern and Cleopatra’s Needle. His debut album Diaspora with Petros Klampanis (bass) and Luca Santaniello (drums) features his original compositions.
