During the summer of 2012, after living in New York for roughly 10 years as a pianist & composer, and after working on many different music projects, I thought of starting an authentic jazz piano trio. That's when I met two great musicians, bassist Daniel Ori and drummer Rob Garcia. Timely enough, Faust Harrison Pianos in New York offered me a concert and a great piano, a Yamaha CFX.
All numbers are my original, ranging from 17 years to 3 days old. Each song has it's own story for telling. It's my pleasure and great honor to invite all of you to this wonderful journey of music.
