Shhh ... This is way too exciting !!! I was really sick, since I came back from Cuba my Sinus decided to punish me, maybe because of the weather change or maybe because my body needs beach at least once per week ... Well, in the beginning of my second week back home I got an email from the amazing Jaymz Bee, inviting me to perform a song at the JazzFM Loft Party ... even tough my instrument was sick I couldn't say no , I just started to overdose in Ginger Mint tea 12x per day and hope that I would be 100% for that super day .
I first decided to sing a fast tempo Samba, but by the end of the week me and Piano player Lou Pomanti, decided to change the song to a mid tempo Samba written by Noel Rosa called Fita Amarela .
I felt extremely happy to be surrounded by people that got together for the same amazing cause, music, Jazz, culture
Jaymz, Juju and Jacob
There was not only lots of music in two different rooms BUT the amazing Robert Westall working on some siiiiick Caricatures
I am super glad I didn't have a heart attack I was about to fly
The super amazing Band Lou Pomanti (Keys), Ted Quinlan (Guitar ) Jacob Gorzhaltsan (Clarinet/Sax)
I was extremely happy to be playing with super talented musicians it felt like a family party, and Jacob played his Clarinet so beautifully so ... Samba! and that was my moment

We also had this lovely gentleman, Bobby Motta playing tricks on us, by reading our minds with games that were pure talent! I was chocked, he guessed 4x the number I was only picturing in my mind I even spoke to him once with closed eyes hoping that he wouldn't guess, but he did !!!
