Chaquito And The Quedo Brass

chaquito

I’ll buy any record featuring a sixties blond in bikini and sling-backs on the cover, but thankfully on this occasion the music contained within is pretty sexy too. According to the sleeve notes, “it was Chaquito who scooped the [latin] market in no uncertain manner, [his] fresh and fascinating arrangements that were copied by many other would-be latin bandleaders”. So this mysterious Englishman was a pioneer and innovator of the latin genre? These are the sort of facts you cannot glean from the established historical texts!
