Juan Pablo Torres:
trombone

Born in Puerto Padre, Cuba 1946.

Died: Apr 17, 2005 in Miami, Florida of an inoperable brain tumor at age 58.
Five LPs recorded in Cuba.

In the late 1990's I played Bongoes & Chekere in the New York City band "Los Jovenes Del Barrio", we recorded a segment for a T.V. show called
BET on Jazz, Juan Pablo Torres played with us for that show and a few other gigs.
He was not only a Trombone master & arranger, he was a really great person.

Yes, it's J.P. Torres, the song is on his 1977 "Con todos los hierros" LP.

J.P's Los Caneyes released LP only in Uruguay as Los Chikichaka in early 70's. It contains 10 tracks but they recorded more.
