About Me

As my mother explained to the neighbourhood, I'm the best jazz journalist of the family, and my grandparents are proud of me. I’ve got a bike the sometimes reaches the low registers of Johnny Hartman’s voice while waiting at traffic lights. I ofter dream that I’m playing the guitar solo from Grant Green’s "Idle Moments". When I get up, I teach Spanish Literature to teenagers, even after having been writing adult literature for more than a decade in newspapers and magazines. I both work as editor of Cuadernos de Jazz and General Secretary of the Spanish Association of Literary Critics (AECL). I live in the suburbs of Barcelona.
