Reflecting upon this new record in the making I realize that it is actually quite a bit similar to my first album Nouveau Flamenco. It is bright and exuberant like its working title: Summer. It is colorful like a Summer garden and happy like the smiles of people on the first hot day in the city.

Summer has a very natural sound and not a single programmed drum or synth on it. Actually it has less programmed instruments than Nouveau Flamenco… this is my analog period.

These are the titles I am toying with. None of these feel perfect, but they are a good start:
Summer
Summertime
Ode to Summer
Summer Flamenco
Verano de Alegria (Summer of Joy)

or maybe it should be an Italian title, because the record was inspired by our 7 week stay in Toscany in 1997…
