    While it's turning cold here in Toronto, NEA Jazzmaster Candido Camero exudes warmth. His arthritis makes walking hard, but he makes short mention of it- saying instead that he's glad it doesn't affect his hands, so he can continue playing. His smile and laugh is infectious. And he's got stories - you wouldn't expect less from the man that revolutionized the conguero technique - from a single drum to two and three. Take a listen to Rhonda Hamilton's interview:
