New objectives for the realization of a video clip and a limited edition of the vinyl record
After achieving the initial goal for the launch of the recording of the album, we set a two new objectives: the realization of a promotional video clip and the production of a limited series of vinyl records for collectors.
If we reach this second challenge, all the patrons who have made it possible to achieve these goals from the beginning will be present in the credits of the video clip. If we also achieve the third objective, all patrons will receive, along with the corresponding rewards, an edition of the vinyl record in a limited series for collectors.
Javier Botella and Albert Sanz sing for Gershwin, Porter and Weill
The proposal of this repertoire, with songs by the greatest exponents of Broadway musical theater, revolves around the search for the original melody, with the masters George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Kurt Weill.
For this new album we have made an exquisite selection of songs in which the elegance and magic of Albert when singing and playing the piano, his freshness and his youth combine perfectly with Javier's more mature and velvety voice.
Javier Botella, known as the Spanish crooner, he's a scenic animal, a charismatic performer who gives off swing and feeling on all four sides. From a very young age he absorbed the slow and elegant rhythms of jazz and, since then, they have not stopped accompanying him. Javier has two successful albums behind his back, “The best is yet to come” and “All the way”.
Albert Sanz, great pianist and composer, he had early contact with very varied themes and rhythms. From a young age he studied classical piano and began playing concerts and jams. He has obtained important recognitions and has taken advantage of the excellent opportunities that his enormous talent offers him. Graduated Cum Laude from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, he has shared the stage with top musicians in Boston and New York and has recorded numerous albums with various artists.

Why resort to crowdfunding?
In a context that is not exempt from difficulties for the implementation of musical projects, as a result of the restrictive measures due to the pandemic, it's vitally important to have contributions from patrons that allow artistic quality proposals that, otherwise, they run the risk of not seeing the light due to lack of sufficient means to reach the public.
With the contribution of music lovers, of the golden years of Broadway musical theater and, consequently, of younger jazz, it's possible to realize initiatives as exciting and faithful to tradition as this one.

What will we use your contributions for?
First of all, we want to thank you in advance for collaborating in this project and inform you that, when selecting a reward, your card will not be charged until the end of the campaign and as long as we reach the requested budget. If it were the case that we did not reach the required amount, the collection would not be made.
All aid received will be used to defray the costs of recording, producing and broadcasting the CD. As you may have seen, for this album we set a first goal of € 3,900, which is the minimum budget we need, although the actual budget exceeds this amount. For this reason, we now set ourselves a second challenge to raise € 5,900 and defray all expenses, in addition to being able to make a promotional video clip. If we achieve this second objective, there will be a third up to € 7,900 destined to cover the manufacturing costs of our vinyl record in a limited edition for collectors. If we do not reach these new proposed amounts, we will not be able to carry out these new actions, but at least we already have the certainty that we will be able to carry out this project and we are very grateful to all the patrons who have made it possible.
This is how we will distribute, roughly, the budget:
First goal (basic) - € 4,500 + VAT (21%)
Recording studio - € 450 + VAT (21%)
Sound engineer for the recording - € 400 + VAT (21%)
Mix and Master of the CD - € 1,800 + VAT (21%)
