    As I am stuck home (like many of us are) as I practice and play I decided to film some of it and share it with you to see what you think and if you like it. I am planning to do some standards (copyrights permitting) and some stripped down versions of music from my published albums...hope you enjoy it

    I almost feel embarassed to define this as a tune I wrote in tribute to two of my favorite jazz guitar players because I am in no way in the same league as these two gentlemen but it's a way, for me, to aknowledge some of my influences.

    Originally recorded in my trio album "While we hope and dream" with saxophonist Eric DeFade and doublebass player Tony DePaolis here is a couple of links in case you want to give a sneak peak to the original version

    This one is from the album "Chasing Beauty" and was originally recorded featuring the wonderful Noa Bodner of vocals/harmonica and Fulvio Sigurta' on trumpet. Once more don't pay attention, if it's even possible, to the "I just woke up and it's lockdown week n.5" style hair

    If you are curious about the original recording you can find it on the smart link and you will be able to chose your preferred streaming platform: Francesco Lo Castro - Chasing Beauty

    And with this one We came to the conclution of this series. I hope you enjoyed listening to these acoustic renditions of my original material as much as I enjoyed re-visting my own music at this complicated times. Next for me is to focus my attention on jazz Standards and eventually I'll film and share some of it with you.
