Carlos "Patato" Valdés, 1926-2007

Check out this related article in The Descarga Journal Archives: Obituary: Alfredo Rodríguez by John Child, November 06, 2005 Cuban pianist, bandleader, arranger, composer, singer and percussionist Alfredo Rodríguez died in Paris on Monday October 3rd. "He had such a special charisma and presence and dedication to his craft," said UK Latin club DJ and promoter Dominique Roome. "I'm particularly sad because the concerts we organised at London's Bass Clef, HQ and Bar Rumba with him were so memorable in terms of atmosphere. He was a great character!"

The quotes are from an un-broadcast Aracataca interview Tomek and I conducted with Alfredo in 1990.
