This small jam we recored on Jan. 27th, 2015 while visiting Ron Powell in his home in California. Jorge Bermudez on Congas, Tim “Timbali” Cornwell on Shekere, and Nat Scott on Drums were also part of this small celebration.
Today we are celebrating Martin Cohen’s 76th birthday party with a live stream from Congahead studios. Like every year, we start the party with a small band led by Little Johnny Rivero followed by a jam with all the musicians at the party. Hope you enjoy. Please share.
