“Jazz music in general, but especially Flamenco-Jazz, have found their best and most talented expression with the multifaceted pianist Lucia Rey.”
“Able to control the tempo, knowledgeable about the standards, the scores, the conventions, Lucia Rey decided to trust on her intuition, let her hair down and make magic.”
“Lucia Rey Trio was in the spotlight, who dazzled the audience in the Antonio Romero Square with an elegant and hypnotic performance.”
“This is not only a jazz trio. Not at all. It is a source of good vibes and smiles that flow between three musicians, and from them to the audience, within a fest of creativity and musical eclecticism.”
