Voyage to Vera Cruz

Saudade da Terra (Blue Agave)

We had gone into the studio to record a song that had a feel of Mexico... something that Doug Menuez needed as companion to his gorgeous book of photographs HEAVEN, EARTH, TEQUILA, Un Viaje al Corazón de México.   I sang a dozen bars with a theme, and suggested doing something to resemble it.  Douglas Lora was quiet for a couple of minutes, and then went to work. The final result is this, and it is a beautiful piece. His mastery is fully evident.  It makes the heart beat quietly so as not to spoil the sound of the notes.  

The song found its way from that Viaje to Voyage to Vera Cruz.  Since then, I have written words for it, and intend to record it in the next album.
