Cruise with KSDS to Cuba! What's included in your cruise fare to Cuba with Latin Grooves host, Chris Springer? Just about everything: 3 1/2 days of shore excursions, including stops in Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Cienfuegos. Shipboard travel between ports, so you can spend your travel time relaxing by the pool, not sitting on a bus. Three meals a day, including all lunches onshore and 7 nights in a comfortable cabin aboard the MV Adonia, so you only have to unpack once. The 7-day cruise sets sail out of Miami on May 14, 2017. Immerse Yourself. This is the Real Cuba, up close and personal.

Upcoming Artist of the Week - Curtis Fuller (Wikipedia) - Born December 15, 1934 (age 81 years)
Curtis Fuller - AllMusic.com Biography by Ron Wynn
Curtis Fuller belongs in the select circle with J.J. Johnson, Kai Winding, and a few others who make the trombone sound fluid and inviting rather than awkward. His ability to make wide-octave leaps and play whiplash phrases in a relaxed, casual manner is a testament to his skill.
Fuller studied music in high school, then began developing his skills in an Army band, where he played with Cannonball Adderley. He worked in Detroit with Kenny Burrell and Yusef Lateef, then moved to New York. Fuller made his recording debut as a leader on Transition in 1955, and recorded in the late '50s for Blue Note, Prestige, United Artists, and Savoy. He was a charter member of the Jazztet with Benny Golson and Art Farmer in 1959, then played in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers from 1961 to 1965.
