A historic event that has no comparison in the large European Boogie Woogie tradition, pianist Lluís Coloma has a new album of duets, a forceful and highly recommended set recorded live from September 2007 to January 2008.
It is arranged for two grand pianos played side by side with luminaries such as Mitch Woods, Carl Sonny Leyland, Bob Seeley, Philippe Lejeune, Julien Brunetaud, Mark “Mr. B” Braun and August Tharrats. A real boogie woogie who’s who, paying homage to the genre with key songs and new compositions played by two pianos at the same time (split between the left-right channels of your stereo).
Without doubt, a landmark album and considerably his most ambitious project.
