Chris Washburne didn't hear Latin music until he was in his 20's. At 35, after having survived cancer, obtained his Ph.D. in ethnomusicology he is one of the most sought after trombone players working in Salsa. He has been performing with his own band called Syotos at New York City's Nuyorican Poets Cafe (East 3rd Street at Avenue A) every Thursday for the last four years and performed on Tito Puente's second live recording from Birdland.
