Here is a track called ‘Samba Parthenay’ originally conceived in, you guessed it! Parthenay which is a pretty little village just outside PoitIer in western France.
It was last summer and I was staying in a beautiful house, owned by my brother in-law and his wife, when the idea came to me. This was the beginning of a ‘Brazilian’ project that I went on to write with my good friend and collaborator Marcelo Andrade. We wrote nearly 30 (soon to be released) tracks and worked with some of the best Brazilian musicians based here in the UK. This track features Jandira Silva on vocals and Chris Robinson on trombone.
