Joining me on this album are some of the best Brazilian musicians that happen to be living here in New York: Sergio Krakowski, Vitor Gonçalves, Cesar Garabini, Mathieu Teteu, and Eduardo Belo. They have played, recorded, and toured with musicians such as Maria Bethânia, Bebel Gilberto, Anat Cohen, and Cyro Baptista, just to name a few. The album will also feature three "big" band arrangements on which I will be joined by Jenny Hill, Joe Natale, Bill Owens, and Alaina Alster.
If that isn't enough for you yet, how about this part: Seven time nominated and four time Latin GRAMMY winner Arturo O'Farrill will be playing one of my favorite choros with me! We have an amazing duo arrangement that will be recorded this December.
My good friend and GRAMMY award winner in the Best Engineering, Classical category, Brandie Lane, will be mixing and mastering the recording!
