Airelle Besson/Nelson Veras – Prélude

February 10, 2015 / No Comments / Tags: Airelle Besson, Naïve, Nelson Veras, Prélude,


It’s hard to recall very many recordings featuring a trumpet/guitar duet, and such a collaboration by a male and female debut seems non-existent. Trumpeter Airelle Besson and acoustic guitarist Nelson Veras change all that with their wonderful production, Prélude. The sound of the two instruments together is unexpectedly extraordinary and these two artists of their crafts create a musical conversation which is warm and magical The songs are most originals by Beeson, with a contribution by Veras, and a couple of nicely arranged covers. This is a beautiful, unique and enjoyable effort .
