I've been listening to Alfredo "Chocolate" Armenteros, the Cuban trumpeter who played for Arsenio Rodriguez, Conjunto Chappottín, Benny Moré, etc. and just passed away at the age of 88, for a couple of years now after someone here finally told me to.. "La Brocha" is currently my favorite with him as a band leader..
Posts on Boulez here and here.. hopefully more to come including a longwinded draft I wrote after an irritating review of another composer's concert a while back and something else.. + Paul Bley if you haven't heard.
Update: + Mr Bowie
my favorite Bowie song
