Saquito was the driving force of the great son trio Los Guaracheros de Oriente. He last recorded in 1982, backed by some truly wonderful string-picking. His voice had faded slightly -- after all, he was in his 80s. But both he and his backup have a rarely surpassed charm and flair. Down-home without raunch, masterly without flash, this is some kind of perfection.
