  15. Hello, congratulations for the mix! very nice selection! I'm saxophonist from brazil and I would like to introduce my work that is in my blog, there you can download the full album and watch some videos as well.

    thank you very much.


  16. hi,
    i feel like i was rather late to discover your magnificent blog.
    your mixes are truly superb. but for me there's one that shines
    above all and it's the inner space jazz mix. i can even begin to put
    into words what some of the music there does to me on a pure emotional and spiritual level. it almost feels like i forgot how powerful music can be and i really want to
    thank you for this reminder.
    beside ranting and showing my appreciation, i do have a question though. i was wondering if you could perhaps help me out. in the beginning (approx. first 9 min.)
    there are a few vocal tracks interwind. i was able to dissect (so to speak) two of them (Abbey Lincoln/Raphael) but it seems like there is at least one missing.
    could you please let me know which is it?
    your help would be highly appreciated.
    btw. looking forward for the Byard Lancaster tribute

  17. Hello Marcelo Monteiro!

    thank you for your comment, I will check your site and music right away! :)

  18. @ Anonymous

    Thank you very much for your kind words! :)

    OK, the mix starts with Abbey's words, at 02.30 begins a tune by Black Star Ensemble, don't remember the vocalists name and I can't check that out now because I'm not at home,

    but the album is this :

    Archangelo tune by Raphaël starts from 5.36, when there's still BSE going on for a few seconds.

    Hope this helps :)

    all the best


  19. hi,
    thank you very much, that is exactly the one i was missing (BSE).
    there's no need for the actual names, i just needed the track information
    in order to look out for the entire album (as i did with the others, and
    again, thanks to you, got to discover some amazing s**t).
    thanks a lot for everything man, i really mean it.

  20. hey again,
    i'm really sorry to trouble you for this, but it seems that as of now,
    this album is quite impossible to find. i wasn't able to track down
    an actual copy of it nor a rip anywhere online.
    so i was wondering if by any chance you could please do an mp3 rip of it.
    i know that it's asking for a lot, and i'm a bit overreaching here,
    but i wouldn't do that if was able to find a different source.

  21. I don't share albums here anymore and I'm really busy next week so it may take some time.. but give me your email address (it won't be published here) and we'll talk about it..
