“A good friend of mine, Otis Grand is a great Blues guitarist. He contacted me about playing on Henry’s record. When I heard how good he was I didn’t think he was from Italy. He sounded like he was from America; he was very soulful. He had the feel of a Black American Blues and Jazz musician. I’m honored to play with my Italian brother Henry Carpaneto. We’re just getting better and better together”
