About Me

Former opera and classical writer, and failed alto saxophone player, I've been the Barcelona Jazz Festival's artistic director since 2003.

As AAJ's Spanish language senior editor, I provide coverage of musicians from Europe to Latin America to the United States. I'm also the author of the official centenary book of the Palau de la Música Catalana and co-author (with Guillem Vidal) of the book celebrating the 40th edition of the Barcelona Jazz Festival, published in Catalan, Spanish and English. My last book (published on February 2011) is dedicated to the Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov.
