The Banda Brothers – Primavera


This is among my favorite albums…the performance of Primavera along is worth the cost of the entire album. Ramon Banda brought in a bunch of terrific musicians to cast this Latin project.

The Banda Brothers project includes a collection of diverse tunes performed by some incredible musician friends of Ramon Banda, drummer and percussionist with Pancho Sanchez and now leader of his own band. I was thrilled to connect with guitarist Ron Eschet´é after over 25 years. When I first arrived in California in the 1970s, I would drive with my Gibson ES-175 to Long Beach and study with this fabulous musician. Another standout for me is the tune “Primavera” sung by Destani Wolf. I included that tune on our blu-ray sampler and people have been asking for it for years now. I’m thrilled that I can finally complete this project.
