Biography

Armando “Chocolate” Armenteros (b. April 4, 1928) is an Afro-Cuban jazz trumpeter born in Santa Clara, Las Villas Province in Cuba. He first began playing in a band led by René Alvarez called Conjunto Los Astros and soon after with Arsenio Rodriguez. The nickname “Chocolate” was attributed to him via a case of mistaken identity, when someone mistook him for Kid Chocolate the boxer. He has played with some of the greatest names in Afro-Cuban jazz, including José Fajardo, César Concepción, Charlie Palmieri, Machito and a host of others.[1]
