6. Julieta is growing up, a little imagined piece from this artist, which was edited and accompanied by piano, it’s a joyful piece due to the age of the little composer: 3 years old. It’s mesmerizing!
The last piece of the album; 7. Marguiee´s favorite, is a jazz ballad dedicated to Marga, his own mother, big lover of his music and dreams supporter. It’s a tribute for the pianist Bill Evans, who in his own eyes, is the best jazz ballad performer in Jazz’s History.
