Whether performing with jazz-legends like McCoy Tyner or
Michel Camilo, rock-stars like Carlos Santana and Stevie
Winwood or in notable Latin American ensembles like the
Trop-Jazz All Stars of the late Tito Puente, 'El Negro'
has also shown himself to be one of the most forceful and
versatile musicians in the international music scene

recording session in 1970. Two years later, he joined

immediate reputation for his unforgettable bass line on
the O'Jays' hit "For the Love of Money". He
worked on projects with Roberta Flack, Lee Ritenour, Dave
Grusin, Tom Scott, and others. After 1978 he reached new
technical and creative levels, resulting in some of the
finest contemporary bass playing ever recorded, with such
diverse artists as Chaka Khan, Steely Dan, Al Di Meola,
Paul Simon, Eyewitness, and Michael Camilo.
