ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I met Flavia DeMello in Los Angeles. I remember the first time I saw her at a show case in a funny place on Fairfax. She was on a high stage with high heels that had thick dark red curtains behind. She was wearing a mini-skirt singing a brazilian standard, Desafinado or some other popular Jobim tune. She was shaking two plastic eggs filled with rice in perfect rhythm with the bossa-nova that she was singing and dancing all at the same time, an unbelievable feet that I had never seen before, staight out of the circus. She changed her name to DeMellow.
I had a gig coming up in Tokyo soon that I needed a female vocalist for and as soon as I saw her I thought to myself, I wonder if she has wonder lust like I do. When they were finished I went up to her and talked. There's something intimidating about a women that just comes off the stage sweating from the hot lights and all that dancing in a mini-skirt but as I got closer she got smaller. The stage made her look larger than life but as I walked up to her I realized she was a little tiny thing full of life.
From this first meeting on we became very good friends and she wrote lyrics for many of my songs. It came so naturally for her. She speaks about eight languages and writing lyrics is something she can do in many languages. This was the beginning of a long friendship and twenty-five years later we still collaborate on songs. Because of technology we do this easily and sometimes not so easily from her place in Los Angeles and mine in NYC. Born and raised in Rio she is the girl from Ipanima literally, and when she walked all the boys went ah. Especially our flute player Nick. She came to my solo gig at Gorky's in Hollywood soon there after and sang with me. She was so nice and smart and coordinated we became friends instantly. Flavia has written words in at least three languages to many of my songs. She has a musical soul. You can sing & or read them;

We went to Tokyo to perform my songs with her lyrics. With our great sextet we incorporated African dance, Flamenco, bossa-nova,and samba. I regret we didn't include tango in the show. The band was comprised of musicians from my octet that we had in L.A. for a short time and some old friends from back home. Flavia and I worked together in L.A., Tokyo and recorded in Paris. This is some of those Paris recordings along with some solo guitar pieces. I always wanted to make a solo guitar record with no overdubs but there's just too many sounds that I hear and want to include and not enough strings. This is probably as close as I've gotten.
Papa Noel Equabee was one of the best bass players to come out of Cameroon and this is a country that is famous for it's great bass players. For me he was the best of the best and we were lucky to have him on these recordings. He was always so positive and the whole world misses him since his untimely death.
