Orlando Cachaito Lopez
CACHAITO (180G LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK
The unique album from the legendary Buena Vista Social Club bassist, recorded in Egrem Studios, Havana. Pressing on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl with 12 page colour booklet included.
An inspired debut rooted in the spirit of descarga, "Cachaíto" is given a daring twist by producer Nick Gold and an essential rhythm section. The liberated bass leads an awesome, groove-based experimental journey mixing Cuban styles, jazz, funk, hip-hop and reggae. Featuring Manuel 'Angá' Díaz (congas), Pee Wee Ellis (horns), Bigga Morrison (Hammond), Manuel Galban (guitar) and Hugh Masekela (flugelhorn). [info from label]
