Interviews with Session Musicians
This chapter presents interviews with some of the prolific Latin American session musicians in Los Angeles. These include Abraham Laboriel Sr., Justo Almario, Paulinho Da Costa, Alex Acuña, Airto Moreira, Luis Conte, and Ray Yslas. Between them, they have played on thousands of recordings for some of the world's most influential and most popular artists. Their contributions—delivered through percussion, bass, saxophone, and clarinet—helped shape songs that became international hits and albums that are still studied as masterpieces of jazz, funk, rock, pop, and R & B. Among musicians, they are legends, indispensable and reliable shape-shifting experts who can be counted on to play anything, produce any sound, slide into any groove, and lock into any genre.
