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.
