Dani Nel.lo sax, Ivan Kovacevic double bass and leader, Víctor Verges, Jaume Torné trumpet, Aram Montagut, Igor Kossenkov trombone, Duska Miscevic, Ignasi Poch alto sax, Artem Zhuliev, Pol Prats tenor sax, Nuria Vitó baritone sax, Héctor Martín guitar, Federico Mazzanti piano, Martí Elias drums. Promoted and led by Ivan Kovacevic, the Barcelona Big Blues Band have become one of the most powerful and in-demand line-ups on this country’s swing, jazz and r ‘n’ b circuit. Their energetic, wild, but at the same time sophisticated sound makes them a unique, irresistible group. It could be said that they follow the tradition of the great bands that backed T-Bone Walker or Johnny Otis, but they go beyond this, regularly including top-class soloists like Ray Gelato, Mike Sánchez, Drew Davies and Lluís Coloma in their concerts. Today, the guest accompanying them is the indefatigable saxophonist Dani Nel·lo.
