"Swing" for one and all

“The Champs left the audience gasping in awe, and the Jamboree shone brightly in the light of three superb musicians - undoubtedly one of the most important trios on today's jazz scene. Impressive." --Miquel Jurado, El Pas, Aug, 1, 1998

The Pleasure of Pure “Swing"

The Spanish guitarist Ximo Tbar, project leader and host, continues his non-stop ascent. Last year he surprised us all with a magnificent new Mediterranean fusion album, and he has now unexpectedly given us a new record with a classic jazz twist. It's a new edition of an exquisite three-volume collection of records generically titled “The Jazz Guitar Trio", based on the guitar-organ-drum arrangement, but featuring jazz greats such as the late Lou Bennett, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Billy Brooks and Lou Donaldson. Tbar is a guitarist with lots of class who causes a sensation wherever he plays, so don't miss seeing one of his live performances. Joan Antn Cararach, El Peridico de Catalua, Dec. 1999
