“FatsO is a beautiful discovery… Their musical universe, between blues, rock, soul and jazz, makes the audiences vibrate and gives a sacred desire to dance” – Ouest-France
fatsO, the Bogota’s band led by Daniel Restrepo, are getting ready to debut in the United States, after their succesful third tour in Europe, in 4 cities, one of them on August 12th at the San Jose Jazz Festival, renowned as one of the West Coast’s most interesting summer jazz festivals.

The blues of Willie Dixon, the blue-eyed soul of Joe Cocker, and the seedy, jazz-inflected nocturnal world of Tom Waits mix in saxophone-heavy Colombian sextet fatsO, who Rolling Stone called “intelligent and passionate, sophisticated and street-wise.”

Brainchild of bassist and gravel-voiced singer Daniel Restrepo, fatsO was jump-started by the incredibly creative Colombian music scene. Their name was inspired by Restrepo’s upright bass.

FatsO is Restrepo’s latest project in an eclectic career that’s seen him perform rock (Six Pedestrians), jazz (Asdrúbal), experimental percussion (Tekeyé), and positions within record production (Reef Records) and cultural management (Bulla!). His latest group’s sound is grounded by his large contrabass as well as his smoky voice, brimming with hints of the soul, jazz and blues he’s found so much inspiration from. His influences are clear – Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits all come to mind.

With an ensemble culled from the city’s most accomplished musicians, fatsO has built a rabid following in South America, touring the festival circuit and recording their debut, On Tape (Jazzhaus).
