I love the touch of Martin Leiton in all the prorjects he is in, and Toni Saigi is one of the greatest piano players today. The groove in these sessions is incredible. The outcome is so fresh!
Favorite track: Gran Karma.
The music heard on Desde a Bajo shows us Martín Leiton’s highly personal vision of jazz; the product of his experience and influences, where groove is a prominent feature.
Leiton is a highly active musician who has flourished not only in a strictly jazz context, but also in pop, experimental music, and traditional music. All this goes to make him one of the most complete bassists on the contemporary scene.
On Desde a Bajo, Leiton enjoys the complicity of the drummer Jorge Rossy, for whom he feels a deep admiration. Rossy is an absolute reference for many musicians of his generation and Leiton has had the chance to perform with him on different occasions. Along with Rossy come saxophonist Santi de la Rubia and pianist Toni Saigi; two of the most prominent players on the current scene that round out this quartet, which Leiton has used to document his experience as a double bassist and composer
