Alberto Alberto & Cuatro Gatos: Patria


Check out this truly masterful recording of Rubén Blades’ Patria by Alberto Alberto & Cuatro Gatos:

Such tasteful playing by all the musicians on this recording, but above all, what an amazing vocal performance! Phrasing, timing, rhythm, intonation, chromaticism, emotion, the whole package…

I consider myself very fortunate to have shared the stage with Alberto Alberto many times in the past and he was always great to work with. Alberto Alberto is an exceptional human being with loads of talent. And though he probably doesn’t know it, I don’t hesitate at all to acknowledge that he’s one of my favourite singers of all time. Respect.
