Some of you might know that for the past few months we have been working on a new EP. The 2nd part of the Gypsy Journey trilogy. This EP is a reflection of the evolution of my music.
It has been an amazing experience to record these 5 songs. This time instead of the minimalist approach we wanted to do the opposite. I did a bunch of guitars, nylon, steel, electric and bass. Jordi recorded a full drum kit and tons of percussions. We also had collaborations on each song to bring different elements and sounds.
The musicians include:
Lucas Molfino – Keyboards
Ricardo Hernandez – Bass
Alice Hansen – Trumpet
Zach del Hierro – Percussions
Kerry Paige – Sax
Roger Harmon – Upright Bass
Josh Lee – Violin
Ana Pruneda – Palmas
We also included some flamenco zapateado (footwork) from our dear friend Natalia Perez del Villar.
The mixing was done by my friend Brian Jester http://jcrstudio.com/
We released the first single “El Refugio” a couple of months ago and now it’s time to present you the new single “Summerland”. This song has been in the making for almost 2 years. It is a dedication to our time and friends in Summerland, BC, Canada. We had an amazing experience thanks to the invitation of our friends from Advanced Audio (Dave & Jill Thomas). We used their microphones throughout the recording process. This one is for you guys!!!
The CD Release is scheduled on June 2nd. We will have a show that night at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox. With Cikatriz (local Denver band) doing and acoustic set to start the night. Show starts at 9pm.
