I picked up a CD by the Afro Cuban All Stars - Distinto, Diferente. Bassist Ricardo Munoz (with a tilde) is totally f***ing nuts, and I mean that in the nicest way. He is all over the place, everywhere but on one. He does not overplay, like some BG heros. Just funky bombs. Adding to the time challenge, this band does not keep a cowbell or anyone else consistently on one. I don't know if this is typical of Cuban, as opposed to Puerto Rican, rhythm sections. Anybody out there with knowledge? Munoz is right up there with my latin bass hero, Victor Venegas (Mongo's band). And the brass sections are blowing these wild figures with amazing precision.
