Hello, Drum Friends!

Well, as it is, I may be the last person on Earth to join the blogging world but, as they say, “Better late than never!” Fortunately, my good friend and musical partner, Daniel Figueiredo who maintains the blogs, “Ect e Tal” and “Music Solution”, convinced me yesterday that this is the way to conduct a dynamic dialogue with my supporters and all other drum freaks, all over the globe. So, thanks to Daniel, I’ve now officially joined the legions of bloggers who share their thoughts and vibes on the www.

So, now, what to do with this open global forum? Well, for starters, I’d like to use this to communicate directly with the people who, for one reason or another, access my official web site ( and/or my myspace location ( As I don’t enjoy direct control over my own web site, since it is, thankfully, managed by my cousin Omar in Puerto Rico (, I attempted to make the myspace site a direct means of relating to my supporters and fellow drumming lovers. Alas, this really didn’t prove to be too practical either. So, here I am, testing out an alternative means towards the original purpose…

Through this vehicle, I hope to acknowledge my supporters good vibes and let you all know where and when I’ll be performing, and with who. Besides, I look forward to sharing news items mostly concerning drums and percussion that I happen to discover. I’ll also be posting performance videos and lots of photos of you, which I’ll be taking at all the locations that I perform at!

So, for opener’s here’s a video clip of my former band, taped a couple of years ago in Long Island, NY. This video features the great, inimitable Buddy Williams on drums, the beautiful Cecilia Tenconi on flute, David “Mr. Smooth” Ambrosio on bass, and Adam Klipple on keyboard. The song is, “I Was Made To Love Her”, which is featured on my Latin Wonder CD.
