I’ve wanted to record a jazz album with Marcelo for a long time. I met Marcelo through Clyde McFatter – he was my guitarist at the time, but his schedule was changing, so he recommended Marcelo.
I remember our first gig together – it was back in 2001, I had just released my first album and was scheduled to perform at an indie music festival in the east village. Marcelo had 2 gigs that night – mine was first and that was ok because I was scheduled to perform early. But my festival started late and as a result Marcelo almost missed his second gig.
That was our bumpy start, but since then it’s been smooth sailing (well except for that one time when I missed my flight, but that’s another story:). Over the last 12 years we’ve toured across the USA and he’s played on the My Brother.
Marcelo’s roots are in Jazz, he’s recorded 2 albums with his own trio, so when we started talking about my 5th album – I knew my chance had come.
You told me you’re broken
Told me you’re through
So much has happened don’t know what to do…
For all you iTunes Radio fans, you can now listen to my radio station… let me know what you think.
I finally had the chance to meet the incomparable Lee Truesdale – Award-winning Broadway performer, #1 Dance Recording artist, Actor, Minister and I love his voice so much! We got a chance to chat in the dressing room at the DBGM Gala Fundraiser and he is such a wonderful human being, I’m looking forward to enjoying his new CD Unfinished Business.
