Over het album
El Trio is a dream threesome of some of my favorite musicians, all whom have been in my various bands: Horacio ‘El Negro’ Hernández, one of the most versatile and in-demand drummers in the history of Cuban music and jazz; José Armando Gola, a great double bass player, composer, and an expert in every sense of the word who can adapt to any style; and John Beasley, a genius pianist, keyboardist, orchestrator, innovator, whose imagination takes me to another galaxy. He wrote part of the arrangements for my work “La Creación, which made me so happy.
So, when I heard Negro, Gola and Beasley formed this trio band, I knew it was going to be an ace trinity of incredible improvisational creativity. They each have such a level of imagination, great interplay, and natural talent. El Trio’s sound is organic, contemporary, and supernova. Take a deep listen and see where it takes you.- Chucho Valdés
