“This CD includes twelve tracks recorded during a week of concerts at Café Central in Madrid. Seven nights wrapped up by a unique atmosphere and the warm audience of one of the most magic places where we have played. With Marc and Manolo I have shared more than eight years playing concerts, living experiences, traveling, rehearsing, laughing... which make this CD full of complicity and feeling. A honest taste of our music.”
Lluís Coloma.  March 2009

======

"...with the power of the applause from an audience fully into the energy and devotion that unfolds this brilliant pianist... moving and vibrating boogie woogie supported by his vast skill and elegance and along with his always accomplices as well as great and generous musicians, Manolo Germán on bass and Marc Ruiz on drums.

...a cd full of tremendous display of expression, joy, newness and talent, a true reflection of the atmosphere that he creates and offers in his live performances.
Eugenio Moirón. LA TABERNA DEL BLUES. September 2009

“...We are in front of a virtuoso musician with the capacity to make audiences enthusiastic.“
Eduard Puignou. Melomania. September 2009

“Lluís Coloma is an «undiscovered» virtuoso.
...If you ever get a chance to hear Lluís play live you will be amazed.”
Jim Turney. Amazon. November 2010

“Drawing on live recordings from an engagement in Madrid, 7 Nights at Central is loaded with mind-boggling, finger-tangling piano playing. Working with a basic rhythm section (Manolo Germán, bass; Marc Ruiz, drums), Lluís Coloma avoids barrelhouse overload by demostrating his mastery over a range of rhythms, featuring boogies (“Hurricane's” and the amazing “Chromatic Boogie”), early jazz (“Betsy's Silent Movie”), Latin and Afro-Caribbean grooves (“Darkness” and “Longhair's tribute”), and ballads (“Sleeping” and “Georgia on my mind”). “African Gospel” hangs fleet solos on a dramatically soulful, block-chord frame. The Lluís Coloma Trio are an instrumental combo that need no words.”
Blues Revue. April 2010, USA

“...Lluís nous livre encore une fois une petite merveille d’originalité... Plein d’imagination, le plus sudiste des pianistes européens nous étonne à chaque mesure.”
Phil Woogie. Boogie Woogie.org. 2009

“...ce disque montre l'étendue du talent de Lluís Coloma. De l'extraordinaire “Hurricane's Boogie” en ouverture au riche “Longhair's Tribute”, en passant par divers titres blous, gospel, jazz ou variété, Lluís prouve l'inventivité et la solide sûreté de sa main gauche, tout en déroulant les phrases classiques à la main droite dans un assemblage rafraîchissant. Manolo Germán et Marc Ruiz fournissent une rythmique gorgée de swing, le son est superbe, c'est une aubaine pour nos oreilles.”
