Upcoming Solo Bass Album “Autoportrait”

I went to Sear Sound studio last September to record my first solo bass album (and my third as a leader). I spent a whole year working it with the help of producer Daniel Yvinec. We came up with 13 songs, some originals, some standards, some moments of pure improvisation in the studio. It was a long process, but I’m happy to inform you that it will be released in just a few weeks on Sunnyside Records. Photographer Shervin Lainez did an amazing job for the album cover, and the videographer Bertrand Guez is working on the teaser as we speak! Please contact me here if you want to order a copy before the release date 😉

Bass Workshop Patreon Page

Last year, at the beginning of the pandemic when everyone’s gig had been canceled, I decided to start a Bass Workshop on Instagram. I shared some tips about bass, harmony, technique, repertoire and music in general. I was blown away by the response I got! People from India, Colombia, Japan, UK, France, Russia, Spain and all over the world logged in everyday, eager to learn and hear about music. I decided to put together all the material covered and some new stuff too, all edited and polished. It will soon be available in video and PDF format on my Patreon Page.

Uptown Jazz Tentet

We’ve released a new CD with the UJT entitled “What’s Next.” I really like it, it features mostly original music + a couple standards orchestrated for this swinging ensemble led by Brandon Lee (tp), James Burton and Willie Applewhite (tb). It already hit the jazz charts as one of the top 50 most played albums on the radios in USA. You can learn more about it in the Discography page.
