Yesterday New Flamenco Jazz Guitar Release, Thomas Lorenzo
I must conclude, that my recent trip to Spain has been very fruitful, in terms of composing, as a result of the warmth I felt immersed in the Mediterranean Culture.
I have mentioned, in previous posts, that I would be releasing periodically new flamenco jazz guitar tracks. Some of these guitar tracks will be original compositions, and others arrangements of tunes I adore to play. It is most noteworthy to state that I am a Beatles fan and one of the tunes I love is Yesterday, credited to John Lennon and Paul Mc Cartney.
Furthermore , while I was in Spain I had the pleasure of recording alongside a flamenco percussion master, Jose Motos Perez. We laid down a few live takes of the song, Yesterday, with Flamenco Guitar and Flamenco percussion.
Therefore, I include in this blog a player that you may use to listen to the track. In my next blog I will add the other take of Yesterday and I cannot wait to hear what you like best .
