I want to thank my whole family, who are involved in every note of this album. My father Raúl for giving me this amazing present for my life: music. My mother Flor, for helping me in being much more perseverant and much more detailed in whatever it is. Thank you Mónica for influencing me during my childhood with such great music. My sister and brothers Daniela, Alejandro, Andrés, Diego and of course my new nephews.
João, André, Pablo and Alvaro, thank you for being such good friends and for all these years of fighting together trying to raise our Jazz. It has been a joy for me to work with such dedicated and talented colleagues. And of course thanks to you, Marta, for your sweet bowing on „Arrullo“.
