About two years ago, if anyone had asked me, I would have said the concept of an Italian jazz Drummer from Brazil, who sold trucks for a living, turning up at the Leinster was pretty unlikely. For once, I was right, only he turned up anyway.
So, after two years in the Godzone, Danilo has been hauled back to Torino where he will be flogging dodgy Fiats to the masses or something. Knowing Danilo, Europe will be awash with them in no time… and we will miss the Latin passion he brought to his drumming. We probably won’t miss it much: if you keep the windows open, you could probably hear Danilo from here anyway.
