Tico Tico: By Desi Arnaz

Desi Arnaz was best known in the USA and UK as the partner of Lucille Ball in the successful TV comedy series “ I love Lucy”. In real life they were also husband and wife. Arnaz, a Cuban, was also a successful band leader. Generally his music was not as brassy and hard-edged as Perez Prado or Tito Puente but it was authentic big-band Afro-Cuban. Since Castro’s Communist Cuba has now been deemed a friendly Nation we feel obliged to offer our website visitors a reminder that the Island was always rich in its music. Enjoy Desi Arnaz’s version of ‘Tico Tico.’ If this is not jazzy enough try the Charlie Parker version!
