This not a jazz record. That is to say, it's
completely different from anything I've been
involved with before. The most fundamental
difference is that it's not about the music. It's
about the words. The words, being the poems that
my grandfather, Juan Cabrera wrote...inspired by
everything he held dear; his family, his friends
and his beloved Puerto Rico. Julie Lyon wrote the
music for the seven ensemble pieces and sang the
verse in Spanish, exactly as it was written. She and
I created three additional duo pieces, with layered
percussion and vocals with more of a recitative
approach. The last one, "Canción para Juan" is with
improvised, wordless vocal. The ensemble features
the sublime acoustic guitar work of Jack DeSalvo.
Larry Hutter plays double bass and was our
engineer and is responsible for the warm beautiful
sound of this record. I focused primarily on hand
percussion and  rhythms that I associated with
the Caribbean and Spain, where my ancestors came
from. I'm very proud to present this tribute to my
grandfather, Juan...with love from Tommy.
