I composed “For You” with the desire to find all the musical sensations I have lived in 50 years; to translate all that makes up the universe, emotion and sensuality of Disco. To do this, I chose to record with real musicians (piano, strings and brass section, etc.) which were played live, not forgetting to take advantage of the best recording and production techniques currently available.
I really made this creation to make this musical journey “For You”.
