It was one of our French visitors from the first hour
who introduced me to compas from Haïti. Merci beaucoup
Arnaud. Since then I have been doing my homework and
learned a lot. For instance that I keep my eyes open
for every record on which I find Robert Martino, the
superb guitarist we heared on Tuco’s album recently.
Tuco is the drummer on this record as well by the way.
Les Gypsies de Pétion-Ville are here with wonderful
live registrations. They appear in two different
line-ups, check backsleeve in file for more
information about the matter. The album
is from 1994 but the recordings are from
some 20 years ealier, mid-seventies.
