Ximo Tebar - guitar

"Ximo Tebar is a respected guitarist and creative force from Spain who has taken the compositions Erik Satie, the eccentric, irascible, and innovative French composer and transmuted them into jazz ensemble performances. Tebar shakes things up while retaining enough straight-ahead jazz to appeal to the masses; it’s no accident that “En Habit de Cheval” possesses a clear reference to John Coltrane’s magnum opus, "A Love Supreme". Like Coltrane, Tebar is fortunate enough to have recruited other outstanding musicians who can implement his complex ideas..." (Victor L. Schermer, All About Jazz)
