It is a once in a life time opportunity to share time and have wonderful conversations with someone so admired by many, Arturo Sandoval, and his lovely wife Carmen Marianela. Both with such a good vibe and bubbly personality bigger than life
The added perk of this #unforgettable moment was sharing a good cigar with the king of Latin Jazz, and in the least expected place; @BluNote legendary jazz club in the West Village, NYC. I LOVE THE SMELL OF CIGAR! It reminds me of the stories my mother told me about my grandfather and his cigar business, and the tobacco rolling machine he designed
Two American businessmen went to Cuba in 1929 and offered my grandpa $10,000 for the blueprint; his pride made him reject the offer.
But despite the economic crisis of the depression, his #cigar and food business allowed him to support his #family. - .
