This is a playful uptempo take on Besame Mucho by Luc Escolano. It’s still mellow enough to feel cocktail but with lots of pizzazz too. I love the way he improvises but always manages to take the tune back to the main melody.


I know you’ve got a fixed list, but I just thought I’d put this up there to see if it might be of interest. It’s “Pra Dizer Adeus,” written by Edu Lobo y Torquato Neto. The album is Oceana by Till Brönner, a fine German trumpet player. The vocal is by Luciana Souza. The piano by Hans Groiner :stuck_out_tongue: (aka Larry Goldings).
