This is my first post here on the "Bassists" forum...
My pianist friend heard Fito Garcia this summer at a music festival in Vancouver, B.C. (where Fito did a piece for four 6-string bassists), and bought Fito's CD there, which he then loaned to me.
The CD is called "Mi Bajo Rumbero" (My Rumba Bass) and I just can't get enough of it!!
The music is vocals (including Fito's wife Marlin Ramazzini) + persussion, with all the other parts played by various bass guitars, all of which are apparently played by Fito himself & Ignacio Cervantes.
Very much "up", energizing, fun Cuban/Latino tunes + one ballad.
The CD was produced by Fito, too.
My only problem with it is... the CD is too short.
Fito, if you're out there somewhere reading this: let's have MORE, ok? And SOON!!
This is an excellent CD, IMHO, and really deserves to be appreciated by more people, esp. us bassists.
Just wanted to bring it to folks' attention.
p.s. - it can be bought through CD Baby, but they are currently (hopefully temporarily) out-of-stock.
