A composer of numerous hit recordings, quality music orchestrator and top contender for the title of "most melodic pianist." Started with Montecino's Happy Boys in 1938. He was Machito's pianist before being drafted into the US Air Force in November, 1945. After his discharge in 1947, he free lanced with Latin music's top bands, which included Polito Galindez, Marcelino Guerra, Pupi Campo, and Julio Andino before striking gold whith his monstrous hit recording of "Tenderly" in 1952. His Latinized arrangements of American pop standard tunes enabled Loco's Quintet to perform at jazz clubs and other popular spots which never featured Latin music. ~ Max Salazar
