New CD out!!

 

JJJacobo Palm_V5

My new CD is finally out. It contains rearrangements of pieces written by my great-grandfather Jacobo Palm. Other than myself it features my father Robert Rojer on piano, Randal Corsen also on piano, the lovely Kriss Berry on vocals, Eric Calmes on bass and Grammy winner Pernell Saturnino on percussion. Besides the Antillean musicians mentioned it also features an all Cuban string section consisting of Mariana Hutchinson Siemens on violin and Mara Tieles Cutié on viola. The music was recorded at the Mongui Maduro museum in August 2016 by Oscar Bor. A special thanks to Henry van der Kwast and Gregory Elias for making it all possible and Océane Combeau for the beautiful artwork. I hope you enjoy!!!

Italian summer student

Had the pleasure of teaching Nicholas from Italy for two weeks in the summer. He did two weeks of daily hour sessions. This is a pic of him on my Gibson Les Paul.

Solomon

The downside of having many expat students is that they often leave Amsterdam to settle elsewhere. Always a sad moment. This is Solomon on his last lesson day before moving back to New Zealand.  Solomon
