A new quartet of young Barcelona musicians that build on the jazz tradition in order to develop their personal language. A quartet that gathers generations and finds its personality in the confluence of different perspectives that focus on the same idea.
The compositions by Martín Leiton and the arrangements of jazz standards make up the repertoire that set off the game. The high melodic sense of Santi de la Rubia (sax), the subtle harmonic imagination of Toni Saigi (piano) and the solid percussive volatility of Ramon Prats (drums) make up a proposal that invites us, from a combination of hard bop, cool jazz, post bop and nu jazz, to experience the intensity of this quartet, full of life and fresh air.

Casa Milà, popularly known as «La Pedrera» (the stone quarry), an ironic allusion to the resemblance of its façade to an open quarry, was constructed between 1906 and 1912 by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). For its uniqueness, artistic and heritage value has received major recognition and in 1984 was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, for its exceptional universal value. Nowadays is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and houses a cultural centre that is a reference in Barcelona for the range of activities it organises and the different spaces for exhibitions and other public uses it contains.
