MANYSHADESOFMUSIC - Orlando 'Cachaito' López

World Circuit Records present the unique and critically acclaimed album from the legendary Buena Vista Social Club bassist Orlando ‘Cachaito’ Lopez, recorded in EGREM Studios in Havana, 2001.

An inspired debut rooted in the spirit of descarga, “Cachaíto” is given a daring twist by producer Nick Gold and an essential rhythm section.

The liberated bass leads a remarkable, groove-based experimental journey mixing Cuban styles, jazz, funk, hip-hop and reggae. Featuring Manuel ‘Angá’ Díaz (congas), Pee Wee Ellis (horns), Bigga Morrison (Hammond), Manuel Galban (guitar) and Hugh Masekela (flugelhorn).

Available for the first time on 180gm heavyweight vinyl, presented alongside a 12-page colour booklet.

Fantastic stuff!


Released January 1st, 2001
