About the Album
A guitar virtuoso of Indian and Brazilian-Portuguese descent, based in New York City, Bobby Rozario is a third-generation musician mentored by his parents in Hindustani Classical music, and brought up playing jazz and blues. His blazing, idiosyncratic style interprets melodic lines of Raagas and blends them into captivating lines injected with Afro-Latin and jazz/rock/fusion vocabulary. On his second solo album, Rozario dives deep into heavy Latin and Afro Latin rhythms, with his 11 originals accentuated by the virtuosic grooves of Dennis Chambers and Latin drumming master Robby Ameen, and the bass wizardry of Gary Grainger, James Genus and Melvin Gibbs. Edsel Gomez further embellishes the soundscape with his Latin-jazz-tinged piano solos, while the soaring vocals of Guinean singer Ismael Kouyate, Cuban vocalist Jose Pepito Gomez and New York's Chris Alfinez are additional highlights on three tracks. With Spellbound, Bobby Rozario has sculpted an album that resonates with entrancing guitar craftsmanship, the heartbeat of global rhythm and song, and unparalleled sonic excellence.
