This was an extrodinary collaboration. Chritian is from Morelia and is Fernando’s brother. He has been playing the clubs in New York for several years now. The MVM trio includes Fernando Mendoza, Omar Marin and David Villanueva. It is always a pleasure to hear everyone of them and tonight, the collaboration in jazz between the members and Christian played to a standing room only crowd.

I want to take this opportunity to highlight a new website for the music and musicians of Morelia, ¡Música Morelia!. I am, as you might guess, part of this effort to raise awareness of our musical community and I hope you will take a look. In addition, to help the children who are soon to join Casa Irekua, a new orphanage here in Morelia – there is a benefit concert I hope you will consider if you can be in Morelia on June 22, 2013.

If I could point out one photo that embodies a lot of the style I am trying to bring to my photographs of musicians, this would be the one. The motion is showing in every part of this image, except Christian’s face. I see a swirl of motion around him – like his music.
