Pasion @ Wagner Park, NYC 8/12/97

Two veteran musicians from the New York scene, Connie Grossman (flute) and Betsy Hill (violin) joined forces to create their great Charanga band, Pasion. Meant to be an all women band, they were still in search of a woman bassist, timbalera and guiro player at the time. Helping them are Guillermo Edgehill, Willie Martinez and Danny Gonzalez (from Orch. B'way) respectively. You will see Wendy Ryan on piano and Debra Resto singing lead on one tune. My deepest apologies to the other ladies whose names I do not remember. More about Pasion can be found at salsacentro.com under a by-line from Eileen Torres.
