Dom Um Romao
Finally on CD. Romao's Debut Album from 1964.
12 Tracks by one of the most
outstanding Brazilian Percussionists. "Vivo
Sonhando" (Antonio Carlos Jobim), "Consolacao"
(Baden Powell / Vinicius De
Moraes), "Africa" (Waltel Branco).
Mr. Romao is the best Brazilian
drummer/percussionist ever. A living legend, at 76 he is also becoming a
dancefloor star in Europe, after many years doing famous USA jazz dates with Ron
Carter, Cannonball Adderley, Yusef Lateef and countless others. Not to mention
his playing on the landmark "Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim"
album. Oh, and he was also a member of Weather Report during their heyday! This
new album features many young Brazilian talents such as Danilo Caymmi, Marcelo
Salazar, Paula Faour, Jorge Pescara, Ithamara Koorax and Nani Palmeira. Highly
recommended. --an Amazon reviewer
