With my kite on the ground and waiting for the wind to blow again, “Belle Solitude” was born: A project including music of my own as well as by my great friends and masters Roger Mas, Jordi Bonell, Chick Corea and Edmar Castañeda.
I also want to add as composers: Aleix Tobias for his great contribution, Roger Blavia and Tino di Geraldo for the songs I made based on their percussion, and Ignasi Nogueras for the hours and hours of help recording and mixing everything.
