journeying

 


Lucía Pulido – Por esos caminos
(2011) The most recent record of the great Lucia Pulido. I wrote some of the arrangements, the lyrics to “Ver Llover” with music by Lucía, and played guitar. It features some of my favorite musicians: Stomu Takeishi, ted Poor, Richie Barshay, Ruben Samama, Aquiles Baez and Adam Kolker

La Cumbiamba eNeYé – La Palma (2010) Cumbiamba’s double CD! It showcases a large ensemble with electric guitar, bass and horns, and the traditional ‘gaita’ format. It also features Marc Ribot, my late-teenage years guitar hero! Watch “Pensar” Live

Lucía Pulido - Luna Menguante (2008) I am the musical director for this experimental/modern/Colombian music ensemble, and wrote most of the arrangements on this CD. Featuring Adam Kolker on Clarinet, Stomu Takeishi on Bass, and Ted Poor on drums. Watch a trio version of “Maria que iba en el Mar”

Tibaguí – Retrato (2008) Alejandro Florez’ Colombian project uses jazz elements to approach Colombian music from “el interior.” Alejandro is an amazing guitarist and composer. On this CD I mostly play a kind of guitar from Colombia called “Tiple.”  I wrote a piece entitled “Pájaro Nocturno,” and the lyrics for “Mis secretos.”  listen to “Mis Secretos”

Lucía Pulido – Dolor de Ausencia (2005) Heartache songs from Latin America. With Sergio Reyes on violin and Pedro Giraudo on Bass.

And here is one where I am a guest:

Sam Sadigursky – Words project iii, miniatures (2010) Sam invited me on a couple of tracks playing acoustic guitar and Colombian percussion instruments in his third installment of his words project; an outstanding, incredibly sensitive series of poetry set to music.  listen to “El Hombre”
