Bola Sete (born Djalma de Andrade) was a Brazilian guitarist born on July 16, 1923 in Rio de Janeiro and who died on February 14, 1987 in Greenbrae, California. Sete played jazz with Vince Guaraldi as well as with Dizzy Gillespie. His song Bettina was featured on the Tribe Vibes breakbeat compilation, as it had been sampled by the musical group A Tribe Called Quest.
Bola Sete's name means Seven Ball. In Brazilian billiards, the seven ball is the only black ball on the table, and Bola got this nickname when he was the only black member of a small jazz group...
