  4. Review by Leo Cappi

    Otis is an incredible musician, his understanding of rhythmic
    peculiarities is unique, which makes him a musician who knows how to create the perfect groove for what you expect and may not know how to do. He's definitely one of the most creative and committed musicians I've ever worked with, I recommend him!
