PURA VIDA BAND WITH JIM MESSINA, FLORA PURIM AND OTHERS
My old Costa Rican friend and master precussionist Pepe Chacón just posted a bunch of great photos from the 80s and 90s, among them, many from Santa Barbara's premier Latin Jazz band Pura Vida. We ended up performing and/or recording with artists such as Jimmy Messina, Airto Moreira, Joe Cocker, Flora Purim, Pauline Wilson (singer of Seawind), Joe Farrell and many more. Check it out. Thanks Pepe, we miss you here in SB.
