Racalmuto Rides Again

Miguel Malla, tenor saxophonist of the Spanish band Racalmuto, writes:
We have added more Scott tunes to our repertoire: "Snake Woman," "A Little Bit of Rigoletto," "Sleepwalker," "Bird Life in the Bronx," "Tobacco Auctioneer," and "Suicide Cliff." We just finished a week-long stay at CafĂ© Central in Madrid. It was amazing — packed house every day and great success. Check out our videos uploaded on YouTube. All the best from Madrid.

The Penguin

And at, their take on The Quintette Plays Carmen (with comic false start).

When it comes to Scott, these hombres GET IT. Sparkling performances.

  1. This group is stunning! They definitely "get it" and then some. Great feel and drive and they don't even look like they're working hard. Nice feel of the originals but with their own added flourishes. And the video looks good--I guess it's broadcast. Tell me more about them! I'm booking a ticket to Madrid! Well, I'd like to though I can't at the moment, but these guys are terrific!
