Album Notes
LUISA SO SUITE (parts I & II) - When I met my wife, Luisa, in 1970, I was inspired to compose this suite. The first movement is a slow bolero. The vamp is reminiscent of Tarrega's "Recuerdos de la Alhambra" and pre-dates the "Mash" movie and TV show. The second movement is in a "Choro" rhythm which was introduced to me by the Venezuelan guitarist, Rodrigo Riera, with whom I was studying at the time. The background strings and Latin percussion were orchestrated by Khadafy Khan.
TAKSIM/COMIN' HOME BABY - The oud is the "grandfather" of the guitar. It was brought to Spain by the Moors and evolved into the guitar over time. I play a "taksim", a free form of improvisation, as my introduction to "Comin' Home Baby" on the oud.
AUTUMN IN NEW YORK - When I first heard Billy Holiday's recording of this masterpiece, it became one of my favorite jazz ballads.
SAMBA DE ORFEU - The film, "Black Orfeus", released in 1959, left a lasting impression on me. Luiz Bonfa, the great Brazilian guitarist and composer, has always been a major influence on my approach to the guitar.
NUAGES - Django Reinhardt is to jazz guitarists like Thomas Jefferson is to Americans. While I never tried to play like him, no jazz guitarist can deny his influence. This may be one of his greatest compositions. I am accompanied Ismail Butera on accordion, David Hofstra on bass, and Natalia Perlaza on percussion. This was recorded at Soundworks Recording Studio in Astoria, NY.
ROMANCE D'AMOUR - (tracks 9&10) This anonymous work is a basic for classical guitar. After playing it "legit", I try my interpretation of it as a Flamenco Rumba.
GIO, GIO - I composed this number for my grandson, Giovanni Massimo, (we cal him Gio). He's a swingin' kid who makes you feel happy when he's around.
This album was recorded at Krevat AUDIO Productions and produced by Manny Krevat.
