Cachao is one of the few musicians who is universally known among other musicians as a ground-breaker, one who basically re-invented how to play an instrument. Not only among Latin musicians, but among musicians of all stripes, this Cuban bass player is a legend.
Dig out your copy of DVD Calle 54 and watch again the duet of Cachao and Bebo, two geniuses of their instruments, together!
Uno Más, Tues Sep 28 10 PM on PBS from Buffalo. I believe it’s WNED channel 61 on my Rogers Cable, check your own listing!
