about

After the big success of Sausolito, his first album as leader (AYVA Música AYVA 035, 2005), Iñaki Sandoval presents Usaquén, his new album recorded with his stable trio, featuring Horacio Fumero on bass and David Xirgu on drums.

Iñaki Sandoval has become in recent years as one of the most important Spanish jazz pianists.

The critics highlight his transparent and impeccable technique, combining the traditional language of jazz with a contemporary personal style of writing. The trio sounds powerful and virtuous in up tempos and amalgam metrics, without sacrificing lyricism and beauty on the ballads, leaving also space for the showcasing of the three individual jazzmen.

All the songs from Usaquén are original compositions, including two songs written by bassist Horacio Fumero. Out of the 14 tracks of the CD, of generous length (69 minutes), we can highlight tracks as Hotel Existence, Usaquén, Alejo’s Pub or Peewy, dedicated to the memory of Peer Wyboris, who played drums in Sausolito, and died a few days after this recording was made.

The CD edition contains two “bonus tracks”: a new version of Luna Llena and a piano solo version of Usaquén.
