The album my songs is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Tidal and Neuklang. I am really thrilled to co-operate with such wonderful musicians:


Aruán Ortiz

Aruàn is an internationally acclaimed Cuban pianist, award-winning composer, and a solid producer and educator. Named “the latest Cuban wunderkind to arrive in the United States” by BET Jazz, this classically trained violist and pianist from Santiago de Cuba, considers himself “a curious person who loves music”, and portrays his music as an architectural structure of sounds, incorporating contemporary classical music, Afro-Cuban rhythms, and improvisation as primary material for his compositions. He has received a number of awards such as the Doris Duke Artist Impact Award (2014), Artist-in-Residence at Pocantico Center at the Rcokefeller Brothers Fund (2014), Latin Jazz Corner’s Arranger of the Year (2011) for his contribution on the album, “El Cumbanchero” (Jazzheads) by flutist Mark Weinstein; Semifinalist, Jas Hennessy Piano Solo Competition, Montreux, Switzerland (2001); and Best Jazz Interpretation, Festival de Jazz in Vic, Spain (2000). 


Victor Prieto

Grammy Nominee Victor Prieto is hailed by The New York Times as "A fiendishly skilled accordionist and composer" and by The All About Jazz as “One of the best World music and Jazz accordionists now days”.

He has changed the way musicians and spectators view accordion by revolutionizing both technique and sound (Chord approach on both hands). His love for the traditional Galician music and classical education enriches his compositions with explosive rhythm and colors uniquely combining Galician Roots, Celtic, Brazilian, Jazz, Tango, and Classical music.

 

Arturo Stable

Stable was born in Santiago de Cuba, the cradle of the island nation's most important center of culture and home of such elemental music styles as the Guajira and Son.

2013 Grammy Award Winning Album "Money Jungle" (Best Jazz Album) by drummer extraordinaire Terri Lyne Carrington. He has gained invaluable experience performing or recording with such illustrious leaders as Esperanza Spalding, Paquito D' Rivera, Miguel Zenon, Dave Samuels, Jane Bunnett, David Sanchez, Victor Mendoza, Lionel Loueke, Lincoln Goines, Giovanni Hidalgo, as well as with the Caribbean Jazz Project and the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra.


Marika Hughes

Marika is a native New Yorker, a cellist, a singer, an occasional radio host on WQXR, a storyteller on The Moth and an actor in Family Album ( by Stew of Passing Strange) which premiered at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, summer 2014. Marika has performed and/or recorded with Whitney Houston, Lou Reed, Anthony Braxton, David Byrne, Henry Threadgill and D`Angelo among others. She has performed on The Davis Letterman and Jimmy Fallon shows as well as Saturday Night Live.  Marika happily leads her band Bottom Heavy whose debut album, New York Nostalgia, will be released in early 2016.


Tom Guarna

Tom is a Grammy-nominated guitarist, composer and arranger. Juilliard graduate, he is currently performing and recording with jazz groups internationally, and is first-call on a wide range of projects, from session work, jazz venues, tours, and large arenas. Guarna has had feature articles in Jazz Improv (Summer 2004) and Jazz Guitar Book (2012) magazines for his jazz approach, and had his masterful hands in the following styles of music: jazz, funk, Latin, soul, pop, R&B, gospel, Broadway, world music, dance music, and has arranged for film scores. Guarna incorporates all of these styles into his own blend of unique and engaging music, as he forges ahead within his forte: modern jazz. Guarna has recorded five CDs as composer and leader on the Steeplechase Records label, and his highly anticipated CD, Rush, on the BJUR (Brooklyn Jazz Underground Recording) label, was released on February 2014.
