Buena Vista Club mainstay Orlando "Cachaito" Lopez, who is widely regarded as the best bassist in Cuba, could have taken the safe route and recorded a straightforward collection of Cuban son/Latin jazz music. The resulting album may have been a bit predictable and mild, but the high level of musicianship would have ensured a quality product, particularly considering the impressive international cast that appears with Cachaito on this album.

Orlando ‘Cachaito’ López carried the mid-century tradition of superlative, influential Cuban music forward until his death, in 2009. His gift was to seam the polyrhythms and axé (spiritual power/energy) of Afro-Cuban music with African-American jazz as a virtuoso and emblem of his heritage.
