“Quédate,” the Latest Single from the Excellent Latin Jazz Album, Sol! [Video]

 

“Quédate,” the latest single from my new album with Jeremy Bosch, Sol, was originally meant to be about keeping in touch with one’s friends and loved ones during this especially tough time. It originally had a different title but changed as it was being composed.

With the collaboration of my friend, songwriter and vocalist Jeremy Bosch in June 2020, the song took on a different character, that of speaking to a loved one and asking them to “stay,” and about enjoying the beauty and richness of the moment.

For me personally, “Quédate” was about joining my colleagues in the studio once again to record the song, sharing quality moments with people that I actually consider my family.  The single and new video attest to the spirit and perseverance of these musicians during this tough time in our industry.
