Dance With Me
Label : JTR // Latin , Jazz // 2020-07-31
“Dance with me” is an eclectic collection of international music arranged with Latin rhythms including salsa, boleros, cha cha cha and calypso; all the while keeping within Latin jazz and traditional rhythms. These songs include popular Latin standards adapted into English, Great American Songbook standards, original compositions, and a Latin-tinged song penned by the great Randy Bachman of Bachman Turner Overdrive.
For me, the piece de résistance is a duet with multi-Grammy winning Latin superstar, Juan Luis Guerra on the song “Dance with me”. I met Juan Luis a few years ago in Santo Domingo, and told him how much I loved his song “Si tú no bailas conmigo” among others. Recently I wrote an English adaptation to it, and when he heard it, he was so gracious to accept an invitation to sing a bilingual duet with me.
My dream has come true, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. I would personally like to thank all of my fans who pledged for this dream project to become a reality. I am eternally grateful. And, I am also grateful to my all-Latin band for your exemplary artistry; I know how you contributed wholeheartedly to the recording of this album.
