About the Album

“Simple" is a track from Barcelona-born bassist Manel Fortià’s trio album Despertar, available May 12, 2022 via Segell Microscopi/Altafonte Distribution. Bridging Fortià’s Mediterranean and Spanish roots with the sounds of modern New York jazz, the album – featuring Fortià’s trio with award winning Spanish pianist Marco Mezquida and French drummer Raphaël Pannier – presents a musical self-portrait based on a selection of spirited originals, all inspired by Fortià’s profound musical experiences while living in New York City between 2016 and 2020. The composer creates a lyrical and personal music which touches on influences as varied as Charlie Haden, Keith Jarrett, Maurice Ravel and Paco de Lucía, among others.
