Jonathan Dimond

Worthy of wearing out the CD!
Finding a balance between contemporary outlook and authentic grounding in tradition, Oscar Stagnaro here demonstrates what comes naturally to him - a music that makes you want to think AND dance. His bass lines are warm, assured, and always in the moment. Oscar's compositions and arrangements on this recording demonstrate a true love of the music and the experience of rendering him with his great-sounding band.
