This album was born from the desire to know oneself, to show what I am and to seek the path I want to follow, expressing it musically from an honest and transparent vision.

Òscar Latorre

Òscar Latorre discovered the trumpet at the age of 6 and since then he has not put it down. He currently resides in Basel and is part of the prestigious Focusyear 20 program at the city’s Jazz campus, where he has shared great musical experiences with internationally recognized musicians such as Jorge Rossy, Guillermo Klein, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Wolfgang Muthspiel and many others. In this new album, Latorre reflects on a time of change and learning. He does so with music influenced by jazz, but also by contemporary and popular music, with determined compositions such as “Re-encounter”; atmospheric numbers like,  “Delusion”; and airy songs like, “Overcome.”
