Tanaóra was a sextet I co-led with singer-songwriter Cecilia Engelhart and percussionist Michael Spiro.
Our music blends jazz and pop music from the Caribbean, Brazil, and the USA and features top players from the Bay Area jazz and world music scenes.
I played piano and keyboards, arranged, engineered overdubs (percussion, piano, voice, saxes, guitars), edited, and assisted with the mixing and mastering.
Dia Real was initially released by a small label but has been out-of-print for years. It’s now available here exclusively.
The original release was much louder at the insistence of the record label (to compete in the absurd loudness wars). The version sold here is the original master, which also restores our preferred song order and two interludes, Jam #6 and Jam #7, which were omitted from the original release.
