Fania - Joe Cuba Sextet Bustin' Out Men's Shirt, Army
100% Cotton (American Apparel)
Joe Cuba, "the architect of Boogaloo", passed away in February 2009, and this is Fania & 101 Apparel's way of paying tribute to this amazing bandleader and percussionist. Joe Cuba's music embodied a perfect balance of sounds and lyrics (both in English & Spanish) that appealed to both Anglo listeners as well as his core Latin devotees. Few entertainers can claim to have performed at Carnegie Hall, The Apollo Theather, Hollywood Palladium, Madison Square Garden, and the Caribbean Pavilion at the 1964 World's Fair, but Joe certainly could.
