Armando Peraza Biography (Wikipedia)

Armando Peraza (ca. May 30, 1924 – April 14, 2014) was a latin jazz percussionist. Through his long associations with jazz pianist George Shearing, vibraphonist Cal Tjader and guitarist Carlos Santana, he has been internationally known from the 1950s through to the 1990s. Although primarily known as a bongocero and conguero, Peraza also served as timbalero when he played timbales, congas and bongos in 1979 with Santana on the band's recording and live tour in support of the album Marathon. In addition to his worldwide fame as a highly revered percussionist, Peraza was also an innovative and accomplished dancer and composer.
