September 2000, I had the opportunity to
attend the first Latin Grammy Awards. I
also had a chance to interview top LP players
Spiro and Jesus
Diaz both in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
While in San Francisco I attended the 43rd
Annual Monterey Jazz Festival. Later, I
met for dinner with several area musicians,
including the great, Armando
gallery of the Latin Grammy Awards and
my trip to the West Coast.
