Quinteto Instrumental De Música Moderna Showcase

Los Amigos started out as a group in the late 60s led by violinist Fredrico Britos and Guillermo Barreto which focused on instrumental bossa novas and sambas. By it’s second recording only Barreto and bassist Orlando “Cachaito” López remained when they added Frank Emilio Flynn on piano, Tata Güines on congas and Gustavo Tamayo on guiro. By 1959 they were calling themselves Quinteto Instrumental De Música Moderna and replaced Cachaito with Orlando “Papito” Hernandez on bass. They would integrate Cuban styles such as the cha cha cha which was popular at the time with jazz forms. They would pursue danzon, bolero, swing, son and afro-cuban jazz in the three albums they released by 1960. They reunited for a recording in 1990 as Los Amigos with Cachaito returning along wth the original members plus some guests. We include a track from that recording in this mix highlighting some of the great chemistry of these excellent musicians. Stay in good friendship and enjoy the company you keep.
