Take Five With Arturo Stable
What is in the near future?
Currently working in two main projects as leader. The Dos y Mas duet with master pianist Elio Villafranca, and the Cuban Crosshatching project. Looking forward to touring and developing that music. We have a few commitments coming up in New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Spain and Italy. Also as a side man I have ongoing collaboration with Paquito D'Rivera, Dave Samuels and Diane Monroe, among others. I'm very excited with those opportunities as well, because I keep learning a lot from their vast experience.

No fear, just pleasure :)

The Beatles's "Blackbird."
What is your favorite song to whistle or sing in the shower?
