Album Notes
Quinteto Bloomdido happened almost by accident. I wrote out the music for this group in August 2001. My idea was to study playing the Tres Guitar by transcribing songs. It worked, and then I realized I should put a band together. A few rehearsals happened, a demo was made and eventually we had a few gigs here and there. We played a gig in Brooklyn in 2002 at Barbes. Steven Walcott heard us there and offered an opportunity to record this disc. I was happily surprised because I never had that kind of an offer playing guitar(!).

The tracks on this recording are instrumental versions of Cuban Son. All of the musicians are excellent Jazz players, and this influences the sound of the group. We are applying a Jazz concept to this music. I really enjoyed making this disc, the musicians really gave it their all. The mood in the Studio was one of the happiest I've felt doing any recording.

The name of the group comes from a nickname various friends have dubbed me with over the years. It comes, obviously, from the name of the Charlie Parker tune on this album. All the other composers are representative of the history of Son, old and new. Enjoy!, Disfrute!

I heard a bit of the CD on Steve Blooms web site and liked what I heard, so ordered the CD.

I really love it. From the title to the music, which combines the old latin tunes with a new jazz feel, it is a lovely mix.

If they make another, I will surely buy it.
