Biography

His rapid-fire timbale work rips through the latin rhythms of Santana with fearless confidence. A multi-percussion talent, Karl Perazzo plays with a passion that fuels the latin grooves of the great guitarist by peppering the percussion section with blistering patterns in and around even the most demanding clave, taking the timbales, the music, and the audience to new highs. Along with his Santana percussion partner Raul Rekow on congas, Karl recorded Another Day in the Park, a great representation of the power that happens when these two great players combine their talents. But it is the multi-platinum success of Santana’s Supernatural that ultimately defined the power of the clave, and gave the world a great taste of Karl Perazzo’s percussion playing.
