Afro Blue was formed in ‘99 – last century – in a trio format to perform cover versions of everything they liked regardless of style – Sting, Cecilia, Michael Jackson, etc. – and take it into the field of Latin jazz and groove. Some trio concerts (Algans, Domènech and Grau) quickly led to the trio becoming a quartet and, finally, a quintet. Since then, Afro Blue have recorded five albums, they have appeared on some compilations – Jazz from Catalonia in 2007 and 2017, Jazz Jamboree 2008, I remember you/Recordant Miquel Soldevila, etc.) – and have featured in a very respectable number of concerts. This year they celebrate their 20th anniversary by recording their sixth live album, on which they will review the best of their discography. A powerful, unforgettable live sound.
