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!
