La Mezquita

I always felt that the performances on my last recording Proxima Parada were recorded prematurely. It was done in a few days and live in the studio. I really never felt like the pieces had matured to their best performances. It is a jazz mentality so I was fine with it. I am finally feeling like the compositions for that recording are under my hands.

This piece was written Cordoba, Spain during my brief stay there one summer. That city has a very unique spirit and has a history that that is reflected in the beautiful mosque, La Mezquita.

This is a video Xavi and I shot live in London in February, 2015.
