A Little Studio Fun: Cucurrucucú Paloma
We have always loved this classic Huapango song and recently shot this video in our studio in Brooklyn as we were working on it. Our very talented and oft-collaborator, Derek Snyder of The Oblivion Project in Cleveland joined us from his studio from afar and through the magic of technology, we’re all in the same room!
We hope you enjoy our version.

Meet guitar virtuoso, Tom Guarna
I am incredibly honored to make music with jazz guitar great, Tom Guarna, and am thrilled that he will be playing with me at my upcoming show at Joe’s Pub on May 21rst. Tom is so busy performing with such a wide range of artists — from Branford Marsalis to the Mingus Orchestra, and he just recently released his own brilliant album RUSH, so I am particularly flattered that he has taken time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions so you can get to know him a little more!
Migguel: Where do you get your musical inspiration from?
Tom: My musical inspiration can come from anywhere: Life experience, other musicians, paintings, books. If you are open enough, many things can be inspirational.
Migguel: Who are the musical artists that have influenced you?
Tom: There have been so many. Too many to name actually. Some that stand out at the moment are, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Duke Ellington, Charlie Christian, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Charles Ives, Stravinsky.
Migguel: What is your artistic dream?
Tom: I feel that I’m living my artistic dream now. Playing with my musical peers is fantastic. I have recorded a brand new CD of original music and will be touring and playing that music. That is an artistic dream come true.
