Born in Badalona (Spain).
When he was a child, he listened to jazz records at home, because his father was a fan of Art Blakey, T. Monk, Max Roach, Miles Davis, The Modern Jazz Quartet… At the same time, his sisters were listening on the radio station to some funk & soul music (James Brown, Ottis Redding, Sly & The Family Stone, Aretha Franklin…)
From the age of 10 to16 years he studied piano in Conservatory of The Liceu’s Theatre in Barcelona. The drums was his main instrument from the beginning, but he played it by self-taught.
From 1985 he had been member of a lot of groups in the Barcelona area, and he also leads his own quartet.
He’d played and/or recorded with John Abercrombie, Dave Douglas, Vince Mendoza, Dave Liebman, Fred Hersch, Norma Winstone, Tete Montoliu, Mark Feldman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ben Monder, Art Farmer, Charles Tolliver, Dave Schnitter, Chris Cheek, or Mulgrew Miller.
He plays in more than 80 jazz records.
