      Perico Sambeat about Ofrenda

      I've been fan of Danny Grissett, Ugonna Okegwo and E.J. Stricklan for long time, two of them Tom Harrell's regular musicians; also, I have played with some of them at certain point. The music I wrote was perfect to be played by them and in fact I made some of the compositions already thinking about their performers. On the other hand, It's been a lot time and albums since I don`t collaborate with American musicians and I thought this was the perfect repertoire. I am very satisfied with the result, the group works in a very compact way and the musicians have empathized 100% with my themes and my music. Their contribution is enormous.
