Another drum goes silent.

Latin music and Jazz music legend Ray Baretto's congas go silent tonight, and the world has a lot less rhythm. He started in the late 50s with Tito's band, and then moved on to record with Dizzy, Cannonball, Celia Cruz and Freddie Hubbard, as well as his own amazing outfit. Ricanstruction, a classic salsa album, is one of his best.

Thanks for the music, Ray. We have less to dance to down here without you.
