NFAND Episode 69 Part I - Pete "Bariman" Miranda, baritone saxophone, master musician
Pete Miranda is one of the sweetest, coolest, funniest cats around. I've known him years from working in the Latin music circuit. For those of you who don't know who he is, Pete is a legend. Really. New York City and diaspora history in full glory. Here is a Boricua from Manatí who ended up playing with the Machito and Tito Puente orchestras. Pete is a natural storyteller and his candidness is beautiful. All total he spoke pretty much without interruption for over two hours. I edited a five-part mini-series of Pete, and here are the first two. They say music heals...so, here it is, no music, just talk, but good enough to bring a smile to your face.
