When Two Worlds Meet
When Two Worlds Meet was produced in late December 2000 into January 2001. The CD consists of 9 tracks that cater for audiences who enjoy the sound of the Flamenco Guitar. The compositions dive into moments of RnB grooves by the rhythm section with world type sounds from the vocalists, whilst peaceful yet gratifying melodies from a nylon Flamenco Guitar. The idea was to bring traditional sounds from parts of the world to contemporary today, with this fusion of sounds you get an emotional journey may I say of musical fulfillment. The musicians that performed their talents on this new addition to Deluc were: Andy Watson-Bass, Anthony Scaffidi- Drums, Kate Leduc- Vocals, Anthony Jaye- Vocals, Glen Blair- Alto & Soprano Saxophone and Fred Leduc- Guitar, Keys, programming.
