‘I had the extreme pleasure of working with Bart Fermie on a recent Ivan Lins project. What a joy! Not only is he a fabulous percussionist but he so enthusiastically contributed incredible knowledge, ideas and direction. And, I totally fell in love with all the instruments he’s created. He’s a sound innovator — and simply a great musician.’
Maria Schneider, conductor, arranger, composer after having toured with the Danish Radio Big Band featuring Ivan Lins and Toots Thielemans.
