Awakening is almost an unplanned project, emphasizing spontaneous melodic improvisations over some original songs and standards.
Awakening represents the starting point of an inner transformation, where I have been learning how to access and let my own self express through life and music. It is also my present to the Universe, for giving me life and letting me choose to be a musician.
Lastly, it is important to mention that this is not the final result of that process, but the mere beginning; the recognition that a higher intelligence operates through me (and each living being) and my attempt to consciously let it guide this music.
This project would not have been possible without the collaboration of these wonderful musicians and friends:
Dan Callaghan – Double Bass
Tommy Gray – Drums
Chris Engel – Tenor sax
Julien Colarossi – Guitar
Recorded in House of Horns Studio by Michael Buckley in Dublin, January 2012
