Bio

After 15 years together, 5 albums, and hundred of concerts, Sumrrá is at it best, looking for the limits of the jazz piano trio.

From Galicia Spain, Sumrrá is the improvisational jazz trio of: pianist Manuel Gutierrez, bassist Xacobe Martínez Antelo and drummer L.A.R. Legido. One of the most exciting trios on the Spanish jazz scene today, their performances express assured conviction and a sound full of force and drama filled with the right amount of technique, lyricism, swing and humor. Coming together at first informally, the group formed in the summer of 2000. These three superb musicians have built on a solid feel for each other’s voices and that instinct informs their music with improvisational freedom and inventiveness.

Sumrrá have had a solid and consistent trajectory on the Spanish jazz scene. In addition to their many concerts in Galicia and elsewhere on the

Iberian Peninsula, Sumrrá also have received great response internationally during their performance tours in Bolivia, Portugal, Bulgaria, France, Marroco and South Africa.

The musicians of Sumrrá share a passion for improvisation and open musical form. They continue to evolve, absorbing new influences into their compositions. As Xacobe Martinez Antelo puts it: “The truth is that we do not take any model... Our way of working is about compositions... and that marks the development of the trio, our roles, and our sound.”

In addition to hundreds of concerts worldwide, Sumrrá have released four albums, two of them live concert recordings. In 2016 they are releasing

their fifth album: Sumrrá V journeys.
