Sergio Salvatore & Christos Rafalides
Dark Sand marks pianst/composer Sergio Salvatore's return to recording after a 12-year hiatus. This engaging and energetic duet project with virtuoso vibraphonist Christos Rafalides features many new original pieces along with a some inventive nods to standards.
While planning an eclectic performance of originals in 2007, Salvatore went in search of a vibraphonist to share the stage with. Christos Rafalides was at the top of everyone's list. "From the first notes of the first rehearsal, I was sure that we were about to forge a very exciting and lasting musical partnership," said Salvatore.
