And today, as never before, this is of vital importance. Furthermore, since this is my second CD (My first is Between), the work includes an orchestration for wind instruments, so it testifies to the desire to share the recording path with other musicians who play the same instrument. In essence, Ensemble is the idea that the sense of belonging to a larger organism, in this case jazz, must be recovered and reinvigorated, giving it water and lymph, just like a plant, to make it grow beautiful and robust “.
