My first solo album entitled iRESI is emblematic of my life experiences, my idolatry for Jazz and my undeniable Cuban spirit. iRESI features acclaimed musicians I am fortunate to call friends: Greg Osby on alto, Aruán Ortiz on piano, Francisco Mela on drums, and John Lockwood on bass. Immense gratitude to them for the magic given with their music. Filmed and edited by Mariona Lloreta. Thank you Mariona for the beautiful film work.
