Pedro Eustache collaborated with Paul McCartney on the 2005 album “Chaos And Creation In The Backyard“, and on the 2018 album “Egypt Station“.

What can I say, it was a once-on-a-lifetime experience… absolutely amazing. What struck me the most was Sir Paul’s genuine, down-to-earth humility, his serious, no-nonsense work ethics, as well as the depth of his musical sensibility.

Pedro Eustache, commenting about his contribution to “Chaos And Creation In The Backyard”, from his own site.

For “Chaos And Creation In The Backyard“, Pedro Eustache collaborated on two songs – one of it being “Jenny Wren“. From an interview with the BBC, September 2, 2005:

He said that, for example, one song, Jenny Wren – which McCartney describes as the “little sister” of the Beatles song Blackbird – was inspired by him seeing a flute player with Ravi Shankar at the Royal Albert Hall.

I saw this guy on this low, mournful Indian flute. I traced him down through Ravi, because he had a sound that I wanted for the album, and found he was actually a Venezuelan guy called Pedro Eustace and that the flute itself was an Armenian instrument.

One of the greatest blessings ever in my live is to have recorded with Sir Paul in these projects. BTW, I played in THREE songs of "Egypt Station", not two: "Happy with You", "Hand in Hand", & "Back in Brazil" ...Anyhow, Sir PAUL IS A GENIUS!!! I'm beyond blown away by his amazing artistic sensitivity... GOD BLESS HIM!!!
