It Blurs as We Speak serves as a reflection of life post-pandemic, and how events and feelings start to merge together into one big blur. Each piece reflects a specific event in which it is easy to say what happened but not when it happened, the only exception to this rule applies to the last 3 pieces, “A Suite for Juan Barreto” a series of songs dedicated to Nelson’s grandfather who passed away in late 2021. For this album Nelson combines elements of his own Venezuelan culture with a contemporary jazz scope to bring something unique that feels danceable and cathartic.
