R.I.P. Gato Barbieri

gatoGato Barbieri (1932–2016)

Just received the sad news of saxophonist Gato Barbieri’s passing. Here is the obituary from the “New York Times”.

And here is something special, Gato Barbieri playing “Brazil”  in Montreux on June 18, 1971. With Barbieri are: Lonnie Liston Smith (p), Chuck Rainey (el-b), Bernard “Pretty” Purdie (d), Sonny Morgan (cga), Nana Vasconcelos (perc,berimbau).

Despite the sad occasion: Enjoy!

    I fell in love with Latin jazz. Too bad those artists can’t live forever they contribute so much.
