We have lost «las manos duras»
Ray Barretto has left the earthly stage friday at the age of 76.
The «Master of Latin Jazz» leaves behind an impressive discography and a inestimable musical heritage. I’ve listened and will listen a lot to his records and his virtuosic play. I am thankful to have seen «el indestructible» live in 2004 at the jazz club moods in Zürich.
In the music Ray Barretto will live on and inspire many generations to come.
Que en Paz descanse.
