Movie Info

For decades, Cuban musician Israel Cachao López held court as the preeminent bassist of his native country, his finesse prompting many in-the-know to dub him "The Picasso of the bass." Employing a unique approach - the film presents itself as half-documentary portrait, half concert film - director Dikayl Rimmasch's Cachao: Uno Más intercuts performance footage of López, shot at the Bimbo 365 Club in San Francisco (wherein the great man delivers a live set with the assist and backup of numerous musical legends including Lázaro Galarraga, Justo Almario and Orestes Vilató, with interviews featuring Latin music experts, the musician's colleagues, and his friends. Each subject delves into anecdotal recollections of López and discusses his immeasurable impact on Latin culture and popular music per se . López then takes center stage as an interview subject, reflecting candidly on his boyhood and the Golden Age of Cuban music.
