In today’s video, Carlitos Del Puerto plays along with the bass line to Irakere's “Tata Cimarron.” The playing itself is incredible, but there’s another connection: Irakere’s bass player is his father, Carlos Del Puerto, a pioneer of Cuban bass playing.
Chick Corea has a new project called the Spanish Heart Band that has released their first album, called “Antidote.” The jazz pianist partially revisits his classic album, “My Spanish Heart,” for the record. The band is full of jazz luminaries including bassist Carlitos del Puerto.
