    My music touches your heart and moves your body. My grooves raise consciousness, bringing people together and promoting peace throughout the world.

    The personnel on this track are: - Daniel Figueiredo: Additional Synths - Estevão Lima: Bass - Jr. Lobbo: Electric Guitar - Carlos Malta: Flautas - Kleyton Martins: Keyboards - Cristiano Rocha: Drums - José Staneck: Harmonica - Frank Colón: Percussion, Programing

    This song literally began more like a jingle, as I had basically written a quick groove to use as background for a video idea. But, while I eventually scrapped the video concept, I really felt this groove in my gut, and it refused to let me go! It always got me rockin’ in my desk chair…you know?!

    So I went back to it and re-worked my original “quick-jingle-beat” into more of a voyage, while I waited…. and, then, my friend, Julio Falavigna, turned me on to Bianca Gismonti’s fine CDs,,,, and it was there that I first heard and felt José Staneck’s harmonica. As soon as I heard that sound, I knew this song had been getting ready and waiting for “Stan, The Man” to grace it with his magic! As you listen to all of the “collective heart” that’s in this track, I’m sure you’ll feel the same goose-bumps that I do…!

    Spanish Heart

    Frank Colon

    My grooves raise consciousness, bringing people closer together. My music makes you move as it soothes your soul.

    This is one of those songs that one has to simple be grateful for, because I have no idea where it came from.

    It was one of those moments where one is totally relaxed, with one’s hands running lightly over an instrument, and not thinking about anything. One isn’t expecting anything…. we’re just….open and relaxed.

    The bass line was the first to show up, in parts. I heard it in my head complete before I could actually play it at the speed that I was hearing it… something that I never really got. Thank Apple for Logic! It really took me a while to get it “correct and relaxed”! And, in the end, I’ve got my Bro, Daniel, to thank for helping find the best upright bass sound for the track.

    “Spanish Heart” features the beautiful Flamenco guitar of my friend (…and one of Russia’s premier musician/composers) Roman Miroshnichenko. When I tell my friends that the guitarist on this song is from Moscow, everybody says, “What?!”.

    Much like a Flamenco singer, Luana Mallet uses her voice like an instrument, while letting her heart coax her vocal timing. She was actually not familiar with the Reguetón groove that kicks in at part “B”, so she listened to the groove a few times…..we dimmed the studio lights….and then she did these vocalizations. We didn’t need but one take.

    The musicians for this track are: (alphabetical order) - José Arimateia: Trumpet - Roman Miroshnichenko: Acoustic Guitar - Luana Mallet: Vocals - Kleyton Martins: Keyboards - Cristiano Rocha: Drums - Frank Colón: Percussion, Bass Sequencing
