Whatabout Jazz
After his successful debut album Nonitz featuring Lee Konitz (Quadrant Records, 2011), Catalan saxophonist Marcel·lí Bayer (Barcelona, 1982) presents, with Les Narrations, new original compositions written for jazz quartet and inspired in singular stories.

The music combines free jazz structures, which serve the quartet members as a platform to develop their musical energy, with soft and elegant ballad-like passages. The musicians in the quartet are some of the most well-known young names from the present Catalan jazz scene.
