    I was impressed the first time I met and heard Carli Muñoz. He is an outstanding pianist and composer who also managed to realize the nearly impossible task of having his own jazz club. Located in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico , Carli's Café Concierto has an elegant charm that rivals any jazz club in the world. When Carli approached me about recording, I said yes, if I could co-produce his album. Carli and I agreed and now nearly a year later, we have a recording I am proud of. Both Sides Now features Carli's compositions, some of his favorite melodies, and many inspired moments by the duo, trio and quartet. I think you too will be impressed by Carli Muñoz.

    THE BLESSINGS

    In the evening of June 8 th 2003, I had the honor of being married to my twin flame Katira. A very small and private ceremony and blessings was performed by the two venerable Tibetan lamas, Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Khempo Tsewang Rinpoche, as an act of pure love and commitment. During such privileged ceremony and blessings, as it is customary, the Tibetan masters tossed fresh rose petals upon us. Before commencing the ceremony they explained that the rose petals represented an act of divine presence of Bodhisattvas, honoring our sacred union. In order to share this most sublime act with you, I have gathered in a bowl and photographed the original petals while still fresh.

    It is our deepest wish is that many blessings fall upon you as the petals are spinning and may the music surround you with ever-lasting joy and well being.

    -Carli and Katira

    “Our deepest wish is that many blessings fall upon you as the petals are spinning and may the music surround you with ever-lasting joy and well being” -Carli
