Album Notes
This is the final single from my "Colors Of Soul" EP, released this Valentine's Day 2016 as a romantic, Smooth Jazz treat for all the lovers to share with that special Valentine!

I wrote "Chuva" during a deluge of rain while living in Atlanta a couple years ago. I wrote this song to depict a mood of being smooth, spooky, and sullen, with a groovy, soulful texture and feel within the song. After I finished creating all the tracks in the song, I listened to the finished product over and over again to come up with a name for the song. While listening, I gazed through the windows of the patio doors watching (and listening to) the rain coming down. Finally, it struck me! I asked my wife, "What is the Portuguese word for rain?" (My wife is from Brazil). She hollered back downstairs to me, "Chuva!" I thought to myself, "There ya go! This is perfect! A short word, that provides a meaning for what I was experiencing while writing this song, and it explains the mood and character of the song." Master percussionist Lenny Castro adds the cool effects within the song.

Grab your favorite libation, hold your special one close, turn up the volume just a bit, sit back, relax, and enjoy this Valentine's Day treat! While you're at it, why not enjoy the rest of my EP "Colors Of Soul"?
