2012 repress, originally released in 2004. Landmark recordings from the Cuban scene of the late '50s --free-jamming Descarga sessions led by bassist Israel Lopez. The tunes on the set forever helped define the sound of Latin music --breaking down the more restrictive styles of earlier years and giving the players free reign to jam and improvise over tightly crafted rhythmic patterns. Apart from Cachao's great work on bass, the set also features tenor by Emilio Penalver, trumpet by Armando Armenteros, and trumpet by Alejandro Vivar.
