Who won't think of flamenco or Julio Iglesias when speaking of Spanish music? Mauri, a young Spanish jazz organist, one of the very rare ones, teaches us that there is a jazz world beyond those clichés, worth listen to.
With a masterly mixture of groove, rock, dance floor and funk, Mauri and his band create clouds of rhythmic sound, full of boosting basses, rocking guitars and roaring B3 waves. All songs (except just one) are composed by Mauri himself.
This CD is a new experience of the Spanish jazz world which makes people sit up and take notice.
