JAZZ AT A BEACH HOTEL – in EL VENDRELL – SPAIN
I met with Mixael, he saw me play on Saturday night and invited me to join a brilliant Cuban Jazz Pianist, Luis. We drove for 1 and a half hours, all the way from Barcelona to El Vendrell. Located just by the beach is a beautiful, magnificent hotel, Lemeridien Ra.
We performed Jazz songs, standards and a couple of improvisation pieces from 9pm-11.30pm. Amongst these songs were ‘Fly me to the Moon’, ‘Summertime’ in two different keys, ‘Girl from Ipanema’, a Jazz rendition of ‘Killing me softly’, and ‘What a Wonderful World’ by Louis Armstrong.
The Yamaha grand Piano and my Yanagisawa Saxophone naturally reverberated off the walls with soft and full sound.
We play there again on Wednesday and I will record it with my Zoom recorder.
Now ill leave you with Louis Armstrong himself 🙂
