featuring: Ken Walker - bass, Jeff Jenkins - piano, Paul Romaine - drums, Peter Sommer - saxophone, Al Hood - trumpet and Dave Corbus - guitar

On this Fantastic Friday, April 28 edition of Lunchtime at the Oasis with Arturo Gómez, the celebration of Mario Bauzá; "The Godfather of Afro-Cuban Jazz", now known as Latin jazz continues with a look at the swing jazz recordings featuring Mario with the Chick Webb, Don Redman and Cab Calloway orchestras in addition to recordings with Bauzá with the seminal Machito Afro-Cuban Jazz Band,  and his own Mario Bauzá Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra.
