Bobby Sanabria - Big Band Urban Folktales

Bobby Sanabria - Big Band Urban Folktales

In 2001, Bobby's mainstream Grammy nominated big band CD, "Live & In Clave!!!" took the Afro-Cuban big band jazz tradition into the 21rst century. Now he expands on that tradition by taking it into the future by doing a re-working of Frank Zappa's "Grand Wazoo" and premiering two never before recorded Hermeto Pascoal compositions, "O Som Do Sol" and "Obrigado Mestre" as well as a variety of other new compositions re-defining the big band tradition and the role of the drummer in jazz as Bobby is featured as composer, arranger and performs on drums, vibes, marimba and a variety of percussion.
