In the cover photo of his new album Bons Amigos, Claudio Roditi sits surrounded by "good friends" indeed - the various horns that he has used to make extraordinary music, on both sides of the equator, during a career that spans more than four decades. And on this disc, he's making a little more of that music than on any recording in recent years. "I felt like playing a few more notes on this album," says the 65-year-old trumpet legend. "I played double-time more often than I normally do, and there are some solos where I'm taking some liberties that I usually don't. It was just my choice on this album. Very often, I equate playing a lot of notes with 'showing off' - and I'm not a player who likes to show off."
Claudio Roditi: trumpet, flugelhorn, piccolo trumpet, vocal - Donald Vega: piano - Romero Lubambo: electric and acoustic guitars Marco Panascia: bass - Mauricio Zottarelli: drums and percussion
