Andy Gonzalez and Rumbajazz

When you talk about Cuban music, you have to talk about Puerto Rico and the Bronx too.

This video is a classic example why.

From a concert recorded in Puerto Rico in 1998.

Andy Gonzalez – bass, The Bronx (Puerto Rico)
Jerry Gonzalez – trumpet, The Bronx (Puerto Rico)
Ivan Renta – tenor sax, Puerto Rico
Luis Perdomo – piano, Venezuela
Pedrito Martinez – congas, Cuba

Jerry Gonzalez founded the The Fort Apache Band, which included his brother Andy, one of the great Latin jazz innovators of all time.
