Llanto De Luna
Written in 1942 by prolific composer Julio Gutiérrez — pianist of Casino de la Playa, a tropical music orchestra — "Llanto de Luna" is one of the most elegant and somber Cuban songs. Puerto Rican singer Tito Rodríguez recorded its most widely known version. Rodríguez was a pioneer of the mambo explosion in New York. Rodríguez was an incredibly eclectic singer and band director. He will always be remembered for "Inolvidable" ("Unforgettable"), also written by Gutiérrez.
