Danilo Perez - Glasgow 1997

Pianist Danilo Perez, born 1966 in Panama, was a small sensation in 1996 with his "PanaMonk" album, interpreting Monk tunes to Latin rhythms. Perez has been a member of Wayne Shorter's terrific quartet since 2000 and continues to work with the rejuvenated master saxophonist.

Here's an earlier set by his trio. I got this one from dime many years ago and had it on my harddisk awaiting to be edited for a long time... this set features him with Avishai Cohen on bass and the great Jeff Ballard on drums.

Sorry, I have no idea where these files are (or if I'd need to look for a CD-R, which I'd have to look for even harder) and simply have no time at this moment.

This is one of the aspects that suck about music blogging - dozens, often several hundred, people grab your stuff, but when someone needs it, none of 'em is here to help ... mostly they don't even drop by and leave any comment, as you can see here (I'm sure this was grabbed somewhere between 50 and 100 times).
