Gili-Romani Hot Jazz Cats
Ricard Gili trumpet and vocals, Oriol Romaní clarinet, Xavier Hinojosa drums, Queralt Camps doublebass and, Federico Mazzanti keyboards.
Ricard Gili, director and incombustible leader of La Locomotora Negra for fifty years, co-directs this quintet with clarinetist Oriol Romaní, recognized for his work in groups such as Barcelona Swing Serenaders and Hot Jazz Cats, and for his duets with Ignasi Terraza, August Tharrats and Elena Lasco, among others. Gili and Romaní are, without a doubt, two of the most recognized musicians on the classical jazz scene in our country. In this magnificent group, they interpret music full of swing and feeling, and recreate, in their own way, a series of traditional jazz themes from the 20s, 30s and 40s in New Orleans, Chicago and New York. Ricard Gili’s magnificent interpretations of the great Louis Armstrong stand out, leaving no one indifferent.
