Even if you're not bilingual, you'll understand the essence of this 
feature on Chano Pozo.  Dizzy enters at 3:10 with a vivid recollection 
of Chano and an animated explanation of how "Manteca" came together.   
I'm intrigued by the image and reference to Symphony Hall in Boston, 
sounds like the Afro-Cuban Suite was performed there, but that was 
composed in 1950, so would have been after Chano was killed in 1948.
