Martín Leiton, the Canary Island double bass player and composer settled in Barcelona, has launched himself into the venture of creating a big band by bringing together some of the most outstanding performers on this country’s jazz scene from diverse generations and stylistic currents. In the veteran section, we find the sax of Joan Chamorro and the guitar of Dani Pérez; in the intermediate zone there are the names of Marcel·lí Bayer, Gabriel Amargant, Ivan González and Santi de la Rubia and, among the youngsters, Andrea Motis, Rita Payés, Òscar Latorre and Pedro Campos. That makes 18 musicians making up a big band with which Leiton plays his own compositions in which jazz exists side by side with folklore and the most diverse sounds from around the world. A real festival for the senses.
