It was Yomo Toro who brought the cuatro (a ten string guitar) into the international arena – the funky jibaro (whom Robert Palmer, writing in The New York Times, called “the Puerto Rican Jimi Hendrix”) was a long time member of the Fania All Stars. When Roswell first heard Yomo he swooned, and they finally met in 2002 when Roswell sat in with Yomo at a concert in Haverstraw, NY. It was love at first sound and their collaboration had seeded. Following MaliCool and Blue Mongol, Roswell Rudd now collaborates with musicians of the Latin culture, and the fusion with his jazz idiom is perfect. Bobby Sanabria is my brother and when I play with him together I enjoy it very much and I learn.
