Catalan Jazz on Tour | Martín Leiton Quartet (CAT)

Opus Jazz Club
  • Martín Leiton - double bass
  • Santi de la Rubia - saxophone
  • Toni Saigi - piano
  • Andreu Pitarch - drums

With each and every note of his double bass, Martin Leiton reveals stories of jazz and Latin American folk music. After several years of touring since the creation of the quartet that he leads, Leiton continues to consolidate his project with his fifth album, 'Caravana,' to be released between spring and autumn of 2023. The quartet of Santi de la Rubia, Toni Saigi, Andreu Pitarch and Martín Leiton, demonstrate just how extraordinary they are when their talents combine. Inspired by jazz greats like Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, and Duke Ellington, the new album from Leiton manages to pay tribute while adding Latin American music with Gnawa and Tuareg rhythms and melodies to these indisputable influences. Just one more detail that gives personality and power to the Martín Leiton Quartet.

The Martín Leiton Quartet comes up from the Barcelona jazz scene. The quartet includes Martín Leiton (double bass), Santi de la Rubia (sax), Toni Saigi (piano) and Andreu Pitarch (drums). Leiton graduated in Jazz and Modern Music from the Conservatorio Superior del Liceo in Barcelona but is self-taught in his initial training.
