And I can't believe that a New Year is coming up in a few days!!
Just spent 4 days in the recording studio finishing Phase 1 of my new album titled MIXTURA.
I layed down 9 tracks with my band who I've also named MIXTURA. I've been playing with them around town the last year and a 1/2 and these guys kicked ass in the studio! I am so proud of them!!
Early January 2016, Phase 2 of the album begins.
This will entail recording a song with the 9 piece FEMALE Mariachi Band called "Flor De Toloache". They have been nominated for a Latin Grammy this year and have been featured on Stephen Colbert, Fox News and just toured with the Black Keys this past month! I'm super excited to record the Lou Reed/ Ruben Blades song "Calm Before The Storm" with them!
Phase 3, I fly to L.A. mid January to record a duet with Al Jarreau!! Crazy, I know…and another duet with the legendary Brazilian singer and guitarist Dori Caymmi. I am sooooo grateful to have these opportunities…
I am also soooo grateful to have the uber producer Jimmy Haslip grant me these opportunities.
Guys, this album is going to truly be a MIXTURA album.
Stay tuned to updates and more info on the album leading up to our release date in June 2016!
AND, I'd like to leave you with a short promo about the beginnings of MIXTURA...
