Manny Oquendo is a modern phenomenon! Well advanced in age he continues to lead one of the swingiest bands on the Latin music scene today. When I decided to play, Manny was among the first I approached to teach me. He was at the Johnny Colon (of Bugalu Blues fame) School at the time and taught me martillo on the bongo. I'm honored to have been one of his many students.
