CD of the Day - "Hiram Bullock: Carrasco"

CD of the Day
Hiram Bullock: "Carrasco" (JVC/Fantasy 9679-2) 1997
Originally produced by Todd Barkan for the Japanese market, it was later licensed for release in the USA through Fantasy Records. The album features delightful versions of "Can't Hide Love", "A Night in Tunisia", "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing", Hugo Fattoruso's "Montevideo" and even João Donato's "Amazonas". Bullock himself contributed with several "latin-tinged" themes like "Bean Burrito", my personal favourite.
Hugo plays on the album, alongside his son Francisco Fattoruso plus Katreese Barnes (from Juicy), Steve Berrios, Dario Eskenazi and Sergio Brandão, among many others.
