1. Monedas

With Ron Bland (bass) and Thomas A. Blomster (percussion). Also with Patricia Surman (flute) and Rodney Farrar (cello).

This is a vintage-style tribute to my Cuban grandparents, their late-night dancing parties on the patio, with the parrot screaming in its cage, the teenagers disappearing into the shadows, and how when I was very little, I would fall asleep on the plastic-covered sofa as they joked or talked Cuban politics late into the night.
