Bobby Enriquez (1943 - 1996)


A tribute to the late and criminally underrated Filipino jazz piano giant Bobby Enriquez (1943 - 1996) who was playing professionally by the age of 12. His playing embodies the reckless abandon, the joie de vivre that characterizes the best of jazz along with an unparalleled mastery of the keyboard and its nuances, a cross between Art Tatum and Erroll Garner and everything you care to throw in between - a must listen.
