The legendary conga player, now at the age of 92, is still making heads turn and bodies move with a masterful command of his instruments. Candido, by way of his spectacular showmanship and rapport with audiences and his unique style of tuning his three conga drums, has transformed the conga drum into an international instrument spanning all genres of music. Candido has become an important star in the jazz world as well as the Afro Cuban scene, performing and recording with Machito’s Afro Cubans, Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Billy Taylor, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, and most recently with Tony Bennett. And the list goes on and on. His instrumental prowess is well known and acclaimed; in 2008 he was the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Jazz Masters Award. Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. Now headphone users will hear the same three-dimensional sound and imaging as audiophiles have for the past 25 years with Chesky Recordings. These new Binaural+ Series albums capture even more spatial realism for the home audiophile market, bringing you one step closer to the actual event. You will hear some of the most natural and pure conga drums ever recorded.
