Candido: Fountain of Youth
For his contributions to the world of jazz and his place in its history, Candido recently received the highest honor bestowed on a jazz musician by the United States, the title of National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master. It's a fitting tribute to a man who fulfilled the promise of his grandfather Juan, who after a young Candido was scolded by his mother for drumming on the kitchen table, told her, "Leave him alone! You will see. One day he will be famous."
