Info for Danzón Cubano (Live in Viersen)
When Corinna Rottschy and I first met to discuss the project DANZÓN CUBANO, I felt that it would be a special collaboration. I never dreamt it would turn out to be one of the most fulfilling and enriching experiences that I’ve ever had. Furthermore, immortalising this project as an album is a dream come true. I have always loved working with an orchestra. My composition teacher, Mr. Tulio Peramo, told me that nothing compares to the feeling you experience when hearing your music being played by an orchestra for the very first time !
Then, when I became part of that orchestra, and we were playing my music, I was overwhelmed with such joy, happiness and gratitude.
This project was a labor of love from the very beginning. Much love and respect goes out to the outstanding team we had working so hard to make it all happen. I will always treasure the unforgettable night in Viersen that will never be repeated again.
If you were one of the many thousands in that audience, I hope you were able to feel that energy along with the composer and conductor Gordon Hamilton, the WDR Funkhaus Orchestra, Joo Kraus, my Trio and myself. And, If you are one of the millions ( hopefully ) that will listen to this recording, I wish to bring to you the exuberant colours of orchestral latin jazz and the exhilaration of a night like no other.
