Milton Banana Serrado

From the album Sambas De Bossa (1993) by Milton Banana Trio, along with Walter Wanderley on piano and Jose Alves on double bass, I chose to share with you “Serrado” who was composed by Djavan in 1978. Milton Banana is a master and his playing is very clean and accurate especially the work with the right hand on the hi-hat and the ride cymbal.
