This is a fantastic album.
This album is fantastic. I love Alibi it has a very soulful sound, Intro to Prelude and Prelude in C Minor are favorites as well. Enjoy!

If you dig Latin Jazz, intertwined with continuity and savvy contemporary flavor
After hearing, Cuban pianist's / composer Manuel Valera’s debut “Forma Nueva,” last year, I was in awe with expectation of his next release titled “Melancolia” on Mavo Records. The twenty-something Valera establishes his presence from the inception with his sophomore project “Melancolia.” As the featured artist, his unanticipated surges on the piano serves up a delicious palette of music that’s fused with the elements of Jazz, Latin and Classical. At the moment Valera isn’t a household name nevertheless, after hearing his exuberant piano stylings and inspiring compositions there will no longer be any questions about who he is artistically.

A treasure in any CD collection
Right from the beginning, "De Un Pajaro Las Dos Alas" made me say "ooooh yea..." All of these compositions (and even the arrangements by Manuel) are fantastic. I found Prelude in C# Minor to be an awe inspiring track.(as well as the others.)
