about

FOR ME SINGING AND RHYTHM ARE THE MOST RELEVANT THINGS IN MUSIC. THE ORIGIN.
SINGING IS SOMETHING I HAVE ALWAYS DONE IN MY LIFE, FROM MY EARLY CHILDHOOD AND AFTERWARDS MOSTLY FROM THE GUITAR. 

FROM THE PIANO I HAD AN UNCOMFORTABLE FEELING, BECAUSE AS A PIANIST I WAS USED TO ONLY LISTEN THE SOUNDS OF THE PIANO, TO FOLLOW THE SOUND. AND WHEN I TRYED TO SING I REALIZED I HAD TO LISTEN MORE TO MY VOICE, ´CAUSE THE VOICE IS MUCH MORE POWERFUL, MORE A HUMAN THING. I COULD DO IT BUT LIMITING MY PIANO PLAYING.

TIME PASSED AND I GUESS I HAVE GROWN ENOUGH TO DO IT HAVING SOME FREEDOM ON THE PIANO TOO. 
AFTER A CONCERT PLAYING AND SINGING SOME STANDARDS, IT WAS CLEAR TO ME THAT I WAS READY. 
 
SO I DECIDED TO RECORD THIS JAZZ CLASSICS ON THIS WONDERFUL STUDIO WITH THIS WONDERFUL AND DELICIOUS OLD PIANO. WHAT AN AMAZING SOUND! 
THANKS SO MUCH TO MIQUEL ROGER FOR HIS GREAT WORK AND DEDICATION.
I HOPE YOU CAN ENJOY THOSE "Afternoon Thrills" AS I DID. 
ALL TAKES ARE RECORDED LIVE, NO EDITS. 

CHEERS,


Sergi Sirvent
