"I'm gonna take my office outside!"

It's been a hot day...I love it! Its 11:30pm, I just came back from a gig and I need to work on making some parts for a big band rehearsal we have this friday. Since I know I'm gonna have to be up for a few hours why not work outside? So, as I told one of my roomates: "I'm gonna take the office outside!"...why not?

Voice lesson with Sofia Rei Koutsovitis

Had a great voice lesson today with Sofia Koutsovitis. I can't say it comes naturally for me...it really doesn't! But I know this will take many years so I'll just keep doing my thing. Check out Sofia's music, she is an amazing vocalist/composer and recently released her new album "Sube Azul". Here is her website: www.sofiamusic.com

A copy of my first article

A few months ago I wrote an article (actually, my first one!) for Pie Derecho (www.piederecho.com) a FREE monthly magazine that focuses on Latin culture in New York City. The article talks about my experiences walking around the city looking for places to perform and at the same time I recommend some small joints where you can check out great live music. Here is a copy of the article in spanish so you can read it. Also, keep an eye out for this wonderful magazine which you'll find for free all around the city!

Deep talks with a filmmaker friend

I was just talking to a good friend back in Colombia. He's a filmmaker and we were catching up on what each of us is doing. More like how each of us a trying to find ways to sell, show, promote your idea...your creations, your "babies" (would be a better word actually). And the conclusion always ends up being that the only way to make your films (or songs, or paintings or whatever kind of project) reach out in to the world is by knowing they are the most important thing in the world for you!

Why I'm I telling you this? Well basically because he kept on joking and saying "oh yeah, well why don't you put that on your blog!"...so I'm happy to embarrass him bydoing so, 'cause isn't that what real friends are for!! hehe!

What a nice day

Rehearsal with the Big Band this morning, cooked some lunch, out again to play solo in the Village... I love my life!

Today's rehearsal went smoothly: eveyone came prepared and we only had to go through a few tunes which was great because we could spend more time on each one. Usually we have to go through 2 sets of music in one 2-hour reharsal!

On another note, I'll be playing tonight at "Le Caire Lounge" tonight (189 east 3rd street between 1st and A aves - East Village). Starts at 8pm and its a solo show. NO COVER.

See you soon and save the date for our next Big Band show (open to the public, that is) at Fat Cat on May 29th!
