As a follow up to our successful 2019 production of the CD El pañuelo de Pepa, we are working on a new recording project of the music of Sylvia Rexach. Rexach was a master composer of heartfelt boleros. Her style arguably anticipated the filin (feeling) movement in Caribbean song, a movement that was influenced by jazz singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Nat King Cole. For this recording project we have enlisted once again renowned Cuban pianist Pepe Rivero to do the arrangements and to record the songs with his Latin jazz trio. The trio will include two prominent Cuban musicians: Reinier Elizarde on bass and Michael Olivera on drums. Our vocalist will be the fabulous ibicenca singer Ángela Cervantes. Recording is set for Summer 2021 at Camaleón Studios in Madrid. The recording will feature two very special guests: Puerto Rican Miguel Zenón on alto sax and Cuban tenor saxophonist Ariel Bringuez.
