Bassist Mazza, born 62 years ago in Montevideo, says, “To me, Osvaldo was one of the most incredible musicians I’ve worked with, without a doubt I can say he’s one of the best in the world. “

Uruguayan pianist Noelle (68 years old) and Argentine guitarist Leu (74) expressed themselves in the same sense, having been part of the Rada band with Fatoruso in the early 80s.

Noelle told the agency that Fatoruso was “a different musician from all the other musicians I’ve played with, and he left a very personal impression on this style of candombe fusion” and that for Lew “Osvaldo Fatoruso is the best definition I can give.” I think it was not that drummer, but he was a musician, a performer who expressed himself with drums. That’s how I remember it,” he says.

-What does it mean to release this album and be able to play your repertoire live?

-Daniel Maza: In fact the record was a coincidence, with Osvaldo Fatoruso coming to Buenos Aires and the idea to take the opportunity to be together to play that repertoire with friends. Both Osvaldo and the two Ricardo knew those songs perfectly – all great songs – as most of them were played in collaboration with Rubén Rada. In fact, it was the quickest preparation, as there was not much time for rehearsals.
