By the way Gilberto was a big star in his native Cuba for his musical abilities before coming to Canada to Vancouver to be exact. Pretty lucky for me and my fellow Vancouverites indeed i'd say.
Sorry to appear off topic but my comments were based on my impression of Ronald's playing compared to another approach of chops I recently heard that really stuck in my mind.
you're right - no problem....
