ˋReality is nuanceˊ can be heard live this Saturday in trio format of guitar, double bass and drums.


This Saturday (23rd), at 7:30 p.m., the new jazz album of Albert Vila Trío will be presented at the Auditorium's Chamber Hall. Reality is nuance. Vila's guitar, the double bass of Doug Weiss, and the drums of Ferenc Nemeth form the trio for this concert, playing the seventh work of the Barcelona-born musician and composer.

Albert Vila has recorded and performed his compositions in larger groups, such as quartets and quintets. This time, he is exploring his compositional and performative skills in a smaller group. The guitar trio format can be minimalist, delicate, and even challenging, especially on this album, which lasts almost an hour. However, Weiss and Nemeth mix styles and textures and capture a broad tonal range, in which individualities serve a whole.

As an eclectic and reflexive musician, Albert Vila undergoes intense personal searching to create a coherent language. Vila stated, "I drew inspiration from classical and jazz pianists' use of polyphony and aimed to bring some of that universe to the guitar trio format".

Albert Vila is considered one of the most influential guitarists of his generation. He began his music studies at the Taller de Musics in Barcelona. In 1999, he was accepted to the Amsterdam Conservatory and studied with Jesse Van Ruller. In 2004, he was awarded the first prize at the Dutch Jazz Competition for his composition Gym Jam. The following year, he received a scholarship grant for the master's program at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music in New York with the teachers Rodney Jones, Dave Liebman and Phil Markowitz.
