Though some of the maestro's recordings are more for the head and the heart, plenty are for partying. This collection hand-picks the best numbers for dancing and going wild, selected from his late 50s Havana sessions for Panart, plus recordings made as a sideman for Bebo Valdés, Chico O'Farrill, Generoso "Tojo" Jiménez, Pedro "Peruchín" Justíz, and the early 60s New York sides done with the Joe Cain Orchestra. Joining Cachao on the Havana sessions were the likes of Tata Güines, Richard Egües, Alejandro "El Negro" Vivar, Armando "Chocolate" Armenteros, Los Papines, and Orestes "Macho" López. In New York under the direction of Joe Cain, Cachao played alongside jazz luminaries like Jerome Richardson, Clark Terry, Jimmy Nottingham, Frank Anderson and Herbie Lovelle, as well as José "Buyú" Mangual, Antonio "Chocolate" Díaz Mena, and Marcelino Valdés, forging a soul-jazz meets Cuban sound that would become more prevalent a few years later and be called Latin Boogaloo. Full of tropical flavours, funky beats, and compelling instrumental solos, the unique and exciting thing about Cachao's descargas is that they allow the music to breathe without the distraction of vocals for the most part. This is diverse music played by the pros for their own pleasure.
