CONTRAPORTADA

Sergi Sirvent & Xavi Maureta

In:

SERGI SIRVENT, piano

XAVI MAURETA, drums

Sergi Sirvent & Xavi Maureta: Lines Over Rhythm (2005 [2006], Fresh Sound New Talent): Piano-drums duets, starting with a run of six Charlie Parker tunes, then originals along similar lines, although these guys don’t steal melody lines the way Parker did. Not familiar with Maureta, but his deconstruction of “My Little Suede Shoes” is irresistible. Sirvent continues to impress. B+(***)
