Paquito D’Rivera:

“Many years ago, against all hope and without any official support whatsoever, Bobby Carcasses and I started the first Cuban Jazz festival at La Casa de la Cultura in (What was left of) Havana. Carcasses is the one to be credited as the man with the idea, and I just followed his contagious enthusiasm. I still remember that Leonardo Acosta presented a show entitled “Bop and Modalismo” with the great Emiliano Salvador playing the piano.

“A person I so deeply admired as an artist as much as a “Cuban Being”.

“As an entertainer, as well as a unique plastic artist, I think my old friend Bobby Carcasses deserves to receive in the USA the recognition.

Sincerely:Paquito D'Rivera New York, February 7th-2010
