Lomuto, Francisco

Y su Orquesta Típica
Pianist, leader and composer.
(24 November 1893 - 23 December 1950)

He performed at the most expensive ballrooms of the period and, following as usual Canaro´s steps, he added to the tango nature of his orchestra, the jazz beat, then calling his outfit «típica y jazz band». Due to this he added new musicians and new instruments: trombone, saxophone, trumpet, clarinet, which became, in the musicians´ language, the reed and brass («cañerías») section. Learn more at
