Why were we "off the air" for eight hours Thursday?

We're back up and running and I wish I could tell you what happened, but I don't know. However, I do know we'll be getting a bill from my programmer for putting things right.

If anyone feels inclined to chip in and help with this extraordinary expense (about two weeks net revenue up in smoke), we'd appreciate it. Every little bit helps a lot.

Israel “Cachao” López is often credited with, making mambo music more popular worldwide in the '50s. This type of Latin jam session is known as “descarga,” of which López was a distinct pioneer.

This Cachao composition "Ahora Si" was written in honor of Andy Garcia's son.

Many Americans might recognize Andy Garcia doing some vocals and percussion work for this performance/music video.

Garcia produced López's “Master Sessions” to pay tribute to his contributions to jazz.
