    169. The most relevant new flute album today? - José Valentino

    'Embarkation - The resilience of humanity amid Covid-19' 


    So this week and with modern technology continuing to be at the forefront (We in the UK still can’t travel to the USA due to covid restrictions) I managed to catch up with Latin Grammy and Emmy winning composer, musician and polymath Jose Valentino at his home in Florida a couple of days ago to speak about his stunning new album ‘Embarkation – The resilience of humanity amid covid-19 which he’s just completed with the brilliant Bruno Miranda and featuring Vladimir Suarez, Jose Leonardo Leon and Derris Lee.


    And as you will hear, what started out as a general chit chat about the album, developed in to us listening to the whole recording and chatting about each piece.  So sit back and enjoy my chat with José which includes lots of flute playing.
