Orlando Guerra "Cascarita" - Cuba, Mexico

Orlando "Cascarita" Guerra
Born: Sept. 14, 1920 in Camagüey, Cuba
Died: Mexico City, 1975 at the age of 55


"Cascarita: Pruebe y compare"
A very nice CD on Discomedia from Spain
Nicely remastered sessions originally from
live sessions on Radio
CMQ en La Habana.
1949 and 1950
These 20 live
recordings by Cascarita are my favorites.
SWINGING!

4. Rumba en el Pueblo Nuevo
(nice solo on a "tack head" tumbadora)

8. Hay que Dejarse de Cuento
(Ochún Taladé)


((Consíguelo))

"El Guarachero con la Orquesta Casino de La Playa"
Cascarita with Casino De La Playa Orq.
((Consíguelo))

Cascarita "El Guarachero"
A compilation bootleg.
((Consíguelo))

"Cascarita"
With Memo Salamanca y Su Orq.
Vinyl LP recorded in Mexico 1966
Cascarita was 46 years old at his time.
Nice arrangements, but the Orq.
sounds rather "stiff" on these sessions.
