Music Night. Happy Birthday, José

The first video, incidentally, has a few treats. It’s a big old Latin sandwich!

The second video is very much worth listening to, and is an interesting story. The performance referred to was from a Detroit Tigers game in 1968.

More José below the fold, and it’s Music Night, so jump in.
