1. Infinite Love
Romero Lubambo-Toninho Horta
This record was a miracle of synchronicity. I intended to do a duet record with the great Romero Lubambo
but Toninho Horta was living in NY at the time and we invited him to join us. We also added Armando Marcal,
my favorite percussionist, Maucha Adnet a brilliant singer, and soon we had Infinite Love.
John Pattitucci, Al Foster
This is from a tribute record to Bill Evans. It was the first time I had the opportunity to work with Al Foster
and he is so spontaneous and vital throughout the recording, but particularly on this quirkly Bill tune.
3. Open Road Medley
This is from "We'll Be Together Again" a duet record with Pat Martino The electric piano turned out to be
the perfect accompaniment for Pat and we arrived at a unique sound for the combination of instruments.
This was a song I wrote before I met Pat, based on Jaco Pastorious' advice to bring a challenging tune to him
when we met. I wrote one other "City Lights" which occured to me while playing scrabble with Jaco on
Bleeker Street and looking out on the surrealistic street scene in the Village.
4. Beija Flor
I began working with Jim in a trio setting with Steve Laspina on bass. But mostly, we worked as a quartet and this
record was done after a week at the Vanguard. I played an Akai sampler triggered by a DX7 as well as piano and
this is a track that many regard as one of their favorites.
