Ben Lapidus and Pablo Mendendez with special guests at the Havana Jazz Festival 2019.

Note: Ben’s new book “New York and the International Sound of Latin Music 1940-1990” is nothing short of SPECTACULAR. You can check it out here.

I can’t overstate how wonderful this book is. A full 360 degree view of one of the greatest music scenes that ever was: the musicians, the educators, the venues, even the instrument makers. Ben tells the WHOLE story. Beautiful.
