Geni Barry is beyond doubt the best vibraphonist all over Spain: a real jazzman and an invetered showman, he is a be-bop expert. Right arm of International piano player Tete Montoliu for more than a decade, today, regardless of performing in a trio, quartet or duo, Geni goes unquestionably straight to the heart.
Barry presents today a delicious and unique performance devoted to the masters of jazz: Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Brubeck, Thelonius Monk, Wayne Shorter and to songwriters such as Henry Mancini and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Born in Barcelona, Geni Barry grew up breathing rythms like swing, be-bop and hard-bop performing in all types of bands together with the most representative international jazz musicians: Tete Montoliu, Albert Bover, Lucky Guri, Nono Fernandez, among others. Geni Barry has performed in most national jazz festivals and venues. Also important to consider the fact that he has the right hand for internationally acclaimed pianist Tete Montoliu.
Unquestionably gifted as a performer, Barry is also his own instrument-maker: in late 1986 he made, thanks to his knowledge on robotics, his vibraphone, making of it a stronger and more transportable instrument with an excellent sonority.
Barry performs together with the most important Catalan jazz artists. The ensemble plays a repertoire which includes artists such as Theloniuos or Davis, making a journey through other musician's songs who have featured in their concerts and who play the same style: Be-Bop, known for having struck traditional jazz harmony and rythmic, whilst maintaining the typical structure: melody (intro) - improvisation (body) - melody (outro).
