Che, Dave and I are forming a small band, 4 people, who are interested in tight arrangements, great chords and rhythms, and keen to create their own sound - kind of jazz/funk/Latin/pop (baiao, bossa, plus some Cuban rhythms) - but not constrained to that. We've got piano (that's me), bass (Dave), jazz guitar (Che) covered, and are looking for a percussionist/dummer. We're working on original material, but also some covers, and are open to suggestions.
You can hear past tracks on this page (I'm on piano, keyboards except for guitar on You Never Said and Song Idea), and these tracks of Cheslav Strokin on Bandmix: San Paul, Angel Song and Silly Love, which we're working on.
If this interests you, drop us a line!
