Just for fun: Arturo Sandoval and Paul the Trombonist - "Peanut Vendor (El manisero)"

The Cuban-American trumpet virtuoso Arturo Sandoval and Paul the Trombonist give us an entertaining reading of "El Manisero" (The Peanut Vendor). Arturo does a McCartney here, laying down brass, keyboard, percussion, and vocal tracks. It's important to note that Sandoval is no dilettante as a piano player-hear this, por ejemplo (as Arturo would say)-he really can play. If you go back far enough (actually I don't go back THAT far, myself), you may remember Stan Kenton's hit version of The Peanut Vendor.
