Paquito D'Rivera talks about the story behind his composition Conversations with Cachao based on the foremost Cuban string bass player, Israel "Cachao" López, the master musician credited with inventing the mambo.

"...The piece intends to reflect Israel López’s extraordinary sense of humor, as well as the eclectic career of the 88-year-young bassist, who has played everything from symphonies, operas and ballets, to silent movies, Jazz, the circus, dance parties and nightclubs."
