In this 1959 photo, Cuban conguero Jorge Tapia is sitting lower right, behind him is Lou Peréz with the group 'Los Mamboleros'. 
Jorge Tapia played on the classic LP "Eso Es Latin Jazz...Man!" - 1963

In 1986,'87 I met Jorge Tapia at the Rumba in Central Park, he invited me to his house, introduced me to his Mother and made me a watercress salad and we listened to Cuban music.
