Hola Chicos,

My friends, Ricardo Jiménez, playing the Clarinet. Alejandro López, playing keyboards and effects, and me playing the acoustic guitar, finished this cover that I want to share with you. I need your comments please!

The purpose of this recording is for fun...we are not professional musicians. We just love to get along, and have fun.

Happy listening!

Hola timm,

Thank you!

You are too much! You are remembering my true story. I am glad that you liked it. I have some more recording that I will share them if you allow me. Most is bossa nova, a Brazilian rhythm. We love to play it.

Happy listening!

Hola Tom,

Thanks for everything Tom...good to know that you liked. God had granted to me good things, good ears (I love ML quality sound) and good friends like you. I did post it too at Facebook, and it seems to be a success!

Thanks again!
R.

Roberto, I am going to listen to it later as I cannot do it now. I love Bossa Nova. Martin Logan has been created to listen to the emotion of the music. Tears in Heaven always stirs my spirit. Thanks for sharing.:cool:

Roberto you and your band are amazing. You never know what to expect when someone says they recorded some music but I was blown away.
I tried to leave a comment after signing up but could not get it to post. I will try again.

I need to figure out how to get it to play through my main system.

Hola Brad,

I think that you can download it from the link above, if you can not, please send me at PM your email address, and I will send it to you. When I listen the recording through my CLXs, boy, I get goosebumps and can not believe myself how the good quality music is coming. I do know it is MP3, but the main file is uncompressed. That´s the reason why we have this quality sound!

We are grandpas that we get along and play music for fun. We are old wolves that love howling together. The place where we do the recordings, there are Martin Logan everywhere. A pair of Montis are the main speakers were we listen the final song.

Happy listening!

Thanks for your kind words Brad!

Happy listening!

Hola Roberto....I listened to both tracks and I am at loss of words. You guys are the real deal. I really enjoyed it. Do you have any plans to release a compilation on a CD to capture all these tracks? I would buy one! Keep on playing soul-stirring music.

Viva Roberto y su banda!

My dear Northy,
We are just grandpas enjoying playing together. No plans for a CD. At the link https://soundcloud.com/roberto47/once-i-love-099 is another bossa written by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Being latino, the rhythm is kind of easy for us. We just love all kind of music.
Thank you for your kindness. Our next project is going to be a special arrangement of a song ¨Alfonsina y el Mar¨ The work was made by Ariel Ramirez and Felix Luna from Argentina. This song is going to be ready at the end of July. On june, I am going to be out of the Country with my family.

Happy listening!!!

Hola Northy,

Vaya! hablas español. Qué bueno. Gracias...las vacaciones para mí, es un gran esfuerzo. My country is not doing too well. We have a severe business contraction. The left wants to get the control...our President belongs to the left and I do not like where we are turning. We are aware of this, and we are fighting that this does not happens. The problem is that the right had being corrupted. A lot of fishy business.

I have more recordings. If you would like to listen to them, PM your email address, and I will send them to you.

Here is another song. The singer is a very known person here in Costa Rica. His name is Gerardo Ramirez, and he lives in Cartago, near to San Jose, our Capital. Another grandpa singing.
