guardarsi non e' facile
vedersi e' ancora peggio
col tempo si impara un po' tutto
tra un perdersi di vista e l'altro

It's warm in Rio and I am getting ready to record one song today in the studio.
I don't really miss freezing NY at the moment.
I have been recording at Companhia Dos tecnicos, an amazing studio in Copacabana, with a great engeneer Flavio Senna. It's a legendary studio where Tom Jobim recorded a lot. There is a wonderful Yamaha piano that sounds as soft as a cloud. No wonder Tom Jobim loved it! I recorded two songs there. One of them was arranged for strings by Jaques Morelenbaum, a dear friend and stunning cellist and arranger. I fell in love with a record he made with Sakamoto called 1996. I remember days and nights listening non stop with my friend Fred. Sorry I disappeared on you guys, but I have been really involved in the new record....I know you'll love it. Andres Levin is soon starting to mix the songs he produced and I will be mixing the rest in Rio. In the meantime I am finalizing all the cover details. I feel like taking the pics here in the magic of Rio. Still deciding on the best scenario. Any thoughts? :)
I have 50000 thoughts per minute these days. I am dying to perform again...soon....soon Chiara...soon I tell myself. Ok Chiara ok. I send you a hug along with the fullest moon I've ever seen
