greatest and earliest supporters, Candido
joined the endorsement roster in the 1960’s
when I met him in Puerto Rico. Cathy Herrara,
LP Artist Relations Rep., along with LP’s
Webmaster, Marcia Stevenson, chose a photo,
from the LP archives, of Candido at the
age of sixty for the birthday cake.
Candido performed a rousing set with Bobby
Sanabria’s band to the delight
of many legendary performers who were
in attendance including Chico Hamilton,
Dr. Billy Taylor, Patato,
Graciela, Larry Harlow and Ray Barretto.
We are all looking forward to the eighty-third
here to see photos from this event.
