I started listening to Michel Camilo in the early 90’s. The first CD I bought was “One more once”. This CD featured a big band. I really loved the sound and tight playin’! I even did my own personal dance moves, trying to mimic all the breaks in my crazy dances! No I haven’t got any pics of video proof…
A couple of days ago I found a new (quite new anyway) live CD with Camilo and the big band.
The arrangements are almost the same as the studio CD and I almost started to do my dance moves again some 17 years later…
One of the highlights for me listening to this music is besides Camilos wonderful playing the fantastic rhythm section playing of Anthony Jackson and Cliff Almond. They really lock with a super tight groove!
If you want to listen to really good Latin rhythm section playing don’t miss these CDs!
