This episode of Harmonious World was particularly easy to record. Pianist Joshua Espinoza's trio album Songs From Yesterday is delightful and insightful, and chatting to him about it was easy.
It's a shame this is a podcast, rather than a video, because Joshua's face lit up when I asked him about performing and recording with his band mates Kris Monson (double bass) and Jaron Lamar Davis (drums). I think you can hear something of that joy in his voice when talking about the experience.
Thanks to Joshua for allowing me to play extracts from Songs From Yesterday alongside our conversation. The album is out this week, so do please enjoy it.

Don't forget the Quincy Jones quote that sums up why I do this: "Imagine what a harmonious world it would be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing."
