Recording Andrea Motis’ new album for Impulse!

At the end of March we flew again to New York to make another dream come true: to record Andrea Motis’ first album for Impulse!, the legendary jazz record label that grew with John Coltrane’s hits.

From March 24 to 30, Andrea and the rest of the Quintet got together at Carriage House Studios with Jay Newland, recording technician, and Brian Bacchus, musical producer, to work on Andrea’s new album, which probably will be out at the end of the year.

World class guests

Besides Motis Chamorro Quintet musicians (Joan Chamorro, Ignasi Terraza, Josep Traver and Esteve Pi), the new album counts with world class musicians as Scott Robinson (baritone saxophone), Joel Frahn (tenor saxophone), Warren Wolf (vibraphone and marimba), Gil Goldstein (accordion), Cafe da Silva (percussion) and Perico Sambeat (alto saxophone).

With all these ingredients, the record will surely be memorable.
