It was a warm July night and I had the pleasure of recording the Afro Cuban All Stars in Napa, CA at the Robert Mondavi Winery.
The leader of the group, Juan de Marcos Gonzalez was also a member of the Buena Vista Social and featured in the film of the same name. He was one of the warmest and friendliest artists Iâ€™ve ever met. The group is comprised many of his family members and even if youâ€™re not related, he still treats you like family. It was a beautiful evening of great music in a beautiful setting.
