He graduated from Berklee with a Suma Cum Laude in May, 2001. He then returned to Catalonia, where he started the Llibert Fortuny Quartet in Barcelona with Albert Bover (piano), David Mengual (double bass), and Marc Miralta (drums). They went on to play throughout Spain, and recorded ‘Un circ sense lleons’ (A Circus without Lions) along with Spanish sax player Perico Sambeat on the Nuevos Medios label in 2004. His next project was ‘Revolts’ (‘Bends’), in which he turned from acoustic to electric Jazz with a quintet: Llibert Fortuny (alto sax), David Soler (guitars, pedal steel guitar, dobro, sampler), David Mengual (electric bass), Dani Domínguez (drums), and Quim Puigtió (sound hacking). After Revolts in 2006 comes the ‘XXL’ live album with his Llibert Fortuny Electric Big Band (Llibert Fortuny: alto sax; David Soler: electric and pedal steel guitars; Dani Dominguez: drums; David González: bass; Quim Puigtió: sound hacking). Currently, Llibert is touring/recording as triphasic alongside gary willis and david gomez.
