“Les Mil Cares” is the title of the new album by Xavier Casellas, an amazing work due to its personality and freshness. On this occasion, the Catalan vocalist and composer wanted to deepen a trend that
he thoroughly knows: the fusion of jazz harmonies and the aesthetics of a songwriter, a way of making music that over the years has seen remarkable results, as is the case with this artist’s new work. The album consists of nine tracks, seven of which have been written by Casellas himself. The remaining two are an interesting adaptation of an original by Rosa Passos and F. Oliveira and a cover of American Tune, an essential classic by Paul Simon.
