Cinco de Mayo


April 26th, 2005 ~ In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we'll celebrate the life and music of Lalo Guerrero--composer of "Cancion Mexicana" and zoot-suit swing and collaborator with groups such as Los Lobos--who passed away this March. Also a visit with young hot Panamanian jazz pianist Danilo Perez, who blends avant-garde with the traditional music of his home country.
