All my gigs have been private events lately. Here I am playing downtown with the Anthony Garcia Quartet with Sam Johnson on electric bass and Steve Haney on percussion:
My duo Paper Moon has finished an album of classic Argentine tangos (take a listen below) with Sam Johnson on upright bass. We will be having a CD release party in the near future so stay tuned! This week, I’ll be back at Sea & Smoke on Nov. 11 playing with the great latin percussionist Steve Haney from 6 to 8pm…
A couple of years ago we were lucky enough to have Flavio Cucchi perform at our guitar studio Paper Moon Music. Flavio is a world-class classical guitarist from Italy, and this weekend he returns to San Diego for a recital in Presidio Park. I’ve been asked to accompany him for this show, which is a great honor, we’ll be playing duet arrangements from Chick Corea’s suite “Children’s Songs” which are terrific little ambient, cinematic themes originally written for piano. Check out the Shows page for more details. Now off to practice for this concert… here’s Flavio playing some of my favorite guitar pieces from Antonio Lauro:
I’ve been finishing up the final recordings for my duo’s album of Argentine tangos, I’ll be starting the mixing for this cd this week. Meanwhile, we’re working on another album of original material plus a few covers of classical/art music like Erik Satie’s “Gnossienne No. 1” with our own improvisations and the great Brazilian choro “Santa Morena” by Jacob do Bandolim. Also, I’ve got a full album of original solo material that I’m currently recording which will be an eclectic mix of things, some ambient movie music-type of interludes as well as full compositions with inflections of gypsy jazz, flamenco, and some weird time signatures!
