Rongetz Foundation, The
Broken Doll Beat
Stphane Rongets quest to discover some new beats over in New York put him on the trail of the fantastic conguero from Eddie Palmieris band - Orlando Vega. The Nurican music connection is also there in the shape of the bewitching flautist Carlos Jimenez, a follower of Dave Valentin and regular playing partner of Hilton Ruiz and Mike Longo. The Foundation can also draw on the musical experience and harmonic knowledge of a legendary but little-known saxophonist, Jazz Messenger Dave Schnitter, who played sax in Art Blakeys band from 1974 to 1980.
