Lucía Rey Trio Lucía Rey Trío, a formation that began its journey in 2016, and that after a season of concerts in different cities, festivals and jazz venues in Spain (Jazz Filloa hall in A Coruña, Clarence Jazz Club in Malaga, venues Clamores and Bogui de Madrid, Vitoria Jazz Festival, Alhaurín de la Torre Jazz Festival, Málaga) record their first album ‘Reflection’ in the city of Granada.
In her creations a mixed sensibility prevails that encompasses styles and sources of inspiration of a very varied nature and origin. Thus, we can hear in their concerts tributes and direct references to classical music, pop, blues, Spanish or Latin music, both in the compositions they sign and in their covers.
Her proposal flows and is complemented by a musical complicity and creative freedom that are mutually granted and that the public perceives in each of her improvisations.
Lucía Rey is a versatile artist, pianist and composer from the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid. After completing her studies of Modern Music and Jazz at the School of Creative Music, and Contemporary Dance at the RCPD in Madrid, she continued her training in Cuba and New York.
In 2005 she received a scholarship to specialize in Latin Piano and Jazz at the Instituto Superior de Artes de Cuba (Havana), and later in New York, at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music and at The Collective School of Music, where she studied with teachers.There she worked as a pianist sharing the stage with numerous artists from the New York scene.
Her musical paths have led her to play alongside established musicians such as Antonio Serrano and Celia Mur with the Granada Big Band (Jazz on the Coast 2012), and to share projects with international artists such as the one led by Cuban singer Eme Alfonso, Women.
Together with the members of Ninjazz, she has had the opportunity to perform a masterful fusion of flamenco and jazz at the VI Bienal de Flamenco de Roma (2015), with her work “Jazz harmonies and flamenco rhythms”; and has participated with the Chabola Vip project at the Instituto Cervantes in Prague (2012).
Outside of the jazz scene, she has worked as a pianist, keyboardist and cover of musical direction in the musicals of Madrid’s Gran Vía “Today I can not get up” and “Who cares”, and in large-capacity events such as the concert
For several years, Lucía Rey has managed to reconcile her profession as a pianist and composer with her teaching activity as a Music teacher at the Superior Conservatory of Dance in Malaga. Currently, she is a pianist and performer in the Somosdanza Company (Teatro Real and Teatros del Canal) and collaborates with other young and extraordinary international musicians in the project The Catzz (Clazz – Continental Latin Jazz Festival).
All of this seems like a lot, and it certainly is, because despite her youth, Lucía Rey is called to hit the national jazz scene with force leading her own project, Lucía Rey Trío. A unique and transparent musical proposal.
