From the beginning of his career, Albert Vila established himself as a unique musician on the European scene, with his love of strong melodies and well-crafted compositions. For his new album 'Levity', a first outing on solo guitar, Albert Vila offers a surprising and eclectic repertoire. The jazz guitarist takes you from Antonio Carlos Jobim and American Jazz Standards to gems from Nick Drake, The Beatles and Bob Marley. While the repertoire is diverse, the respect for the artists and the coherence of each of the eight tracks develop organically over the course of the album. The global phenomenon of the pandemic catalysed this new album. The album was conceived during the heaviest time of the pandemic, and in some way, creating these arrangements lifted Albert up, keeping him inspired through uncertainty and helping him to navigate it's darkest moments.
