2012 and 2013 has been no less than fantastic with two trips to Estonia for month long residencies as a band leader and the many spectacular tours with the formidable Melody Gardot promoting her newest offering "The Absence"
My recent trip for one week in Colorado was an emotional roller coaster and discovery that I really have some amazing fans!
Now the starlet Mme Gardot gets ready to work on her next record and I am excited to be back in Los Angeles and back to work with my many colleagues here and looking forward to joining the legendary and truly soul stirring Angolan singer Waldemar Bastos on the stage in coming months.
I played on Waldemar Bastos recent release "Classics of my soul" The recording was produced by Derek Nakamoto and features the London Symphony Orchestra.
Waldemar Bastos is an extraordinary singer/songwriter from Angola often referred to as "the voice of Angola" - Looking forward to the upcoming shows with this legendary and iconic singer.
