Garota de Ipanema

New takes on classic compositions from Brasil

In 2007, Ben wrote ten arrangements for flute virtuoso, Kaori Fujii and recorded them for Victor-Japan. Garota de Ipanema features William “Beaver” Bausch (drums), Roman Díaz (percussion), Greg Glassman (trumpet), Onel Mulet (percussion), and Harvie S (bass). This successful collaboration led to two successful Japanese tours in 2007 and 2008.
