Episode 07: Xavi Torres

In this episode, pianist Xavi Torres joins me to discuss his recent trio album Unknown Past. We talk about his studies of both classical music and jazz, working with a steady band despite not being based in the same country, finding his place in the Amsterdam scene and the difficult choice he made to pursue music rather than professional tennis.

Xavi recommended The Gramophone Allstars Big Band from Catalonia. Also discussed was Timothy Gallwey’s book The Inner Game of Tennis.

Please visit Xavi's website to purchase his music, find tour dates and more information.
