The first time I heard Jimmy Cobb playing was on Miles Davis record "Kind of Blue". Finesse and class were the words that first came to my mind to describe Jimmy's playing, but goes way beyond that. His unique musicality, drive and time feel makes him one of the greatest of all time and his legacy will be forever an inspiration to the upcoming generations.
Thank you for everything master Jimmy, R.I.P.

I just came across of this video on Youtube from Roy Haynes Quartet live at the Blue Note New York 2019.
For those who don't know, Roy is a living legend, an innovator, also known as "The father of modern jazz drumming", that has played with all the greats from Charlie Parker to Coltrane , Thelonious Monk, Pat Metheny, including many many others.
As if all this weren't enough, seeing him playing in this video at the age of 94 with the same passion and fire he always had is something that leaves me speechless..
Thank you master!

Back in the Summer of 2001, I heard Tony Allen for the first time on the record "Black Voices".
It completely blown me away, not only the music, but his groove, his touch, his musicality, and everything...Sounded fresh to my ears, like something that I had never heard before
.I had the privilege to see him playing live for couple times, meet him backstage and chat with him for couple minutes. He was such a humble, sweet and genuine person, I could tell from that little meeting, although you can feel that by the way he always played, honest and pure..
Thanks a lot for inspiration master Tony, R.I.P.
This video is from a home improvisation I did recently with my electronics kit. I invited my friend Deva Sanmart to perform and improvise some dance moves.
The idea is to perform with this project live near future.
Couple new vídeos from CCB gig with Communion 3, featuring Jacob Sacks on piano and Eivind Opsvik on bass.
