Grammy-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux and internationally acclaimed composer, bandoneónist, and accordionist Julien Labro have released their second duo album, Infusion. The album includes Julien Labro’s arrangements of Leo Brouwer’s Tres Danzas Concertantes and Piazzolla’s Escualo, his arrangement of Radamés Gnattali’s Suite Retratos with bassist Peter Dominguez and percussionist Jamey Haddad, Pat Metheny’s Antonia, and Vieaux’s arrangement of iconic 1980s British rock band Tears for Fears’ Everybody Wants to Rule the World.
Jason and Julien recently sat down to chat with me about the new album. Our talk concludes with Jason telling me about his upcoming visit to Richmond to perform with our very own Richmond Symphony in February. Enjoy!
Yours in good music,
