cuban music, musica cubanaThe lead trumpeter of Manolín's "Chamacos" is also an excellent jazz soloist. He moved to Miami along with most of the rest of the group in 1999. I was amazed to learn that he's the son of the Charanga Habanera trumpeter, Leonel Polledo, although Manolín's band came to prominence on the Timba scene only a few years after Charanga Habanera. His brother, Leonel Polledo Llorents is trombonist with Maykel Blanco y Salsa Mayor. [Kevin Moore]
