Raspa Garcia Trio

Jorge “Raspa” García has established himself over the years as a reference and an essential figure in Blues piano scene. An artist who studied at the IMT music school, completing his training in classical music and Jazz, and mainly influenced by Afro-American music, delving especially in Blues and Jazz, proudly showcasing a more than noticeable New Orleans music influence along his own band, The Tremendous.

In 2015 he released Boogie Woogie Voodoo as Raspa García & the Crawfish, a very personal album that not only highlighted his compositional skills but also previewed the guidelines to follow on this Standards Session Vol. I.

Recorded entirely live at the Brazil Studios in Madrid, this record solidifies a lineup that includes Raspa García on piano, along with two legendary figures in the Afro-American music scene: Antonio Álvarez “Pax” on drums (Vacazul, Tres hombres, Speak low, Los Reyes del K.O.) and Francisco López “Loque” on double bass (Bob Sands Big band, Grant Stewart, Steve Markus, Arturo O´farril), two of the most sought-after musicians in the scene. A lineup that provides a real, organic sound without artifice, recapturing the most primal essence and offering a great number of pleasant surprises throughout this first album.
