“Still Here” (Temps Record 2017) is an album motivated by the participation of Pere Soto and Josep Traver at the Birmingham Jazz Festival on July 14, 15 and 16, 2017. It is a celebration of his return to the festival which hosted them during several editions.
After many concerts, adventures and albums with the name of Django’s Castle, they now offer us a duet album with a series of previous songs and also unpublished songs.
The sonority is based on the two guitars improvising, dialoguing and playing in the manouche jazz line, we find themes of Django Reinhardt, Fats Waller, Stevie Wonder, Kurt Weill and also Pere’s originals.
Recorded, mixed and mastered on June 15 and 16, 2017 at Temps Record Studio.
