Thanks for posting this fine story Roy, I appreciate it.

Gonzalo began as a trap drummer and many of his contemporaries-Ignacio
Berroa or Horacio "El Negro" Hernández et al breathed a sigh of relief when
Gonzalito decided to follow his grand father and father's footsteps to the
piano. The Cuban jazz radio show mentioned in the article that Rubalcaba and
all other musicans and jazz fans listened to was hosted by El Negro
Hernández's father, the island's most formidable collector of jazz records.
