The quartet that drummer Mimi VERDERAME leads on this new CD "Bumpy Road" offers an impressively solid rhythm drawing on his roots in be-bop and afro. It has assembled four peers
at the peak of their musical talents : we are in turn stunned by the creativity of Gino LATTUCA's
trumpet solos and seduced by Jean-Marie ECAYS's guitar taking us on a magical journey from
be-bop to blues, ably supported by the double bass of Bart de NOLF.
As to Mimi VERDERAME' s interpretation, it is impetuous yet sensitive, irresistible and
rhythmical, the beating heart of the quartet. Mimi has also arranged and written most of the
tracks, revealing yet another side of his talent.
