Alfredo "Sabor" Linares. Born (January 27, 1945)in Lima, Peru. Recorded afro latin jazz on the MAG label in the late 60s - completing two solo LPs and guest piano and arrangement work for both Coco Lagos and El Combo de Pepe.
In the early 70s he moved to Cali in Colombia and became involved in the Salsa scene, also recording salsa albums.
Having always been something of a cult figure in South America, come 2007 Linares' profile is given a boost outside of Latin America following guest piano appearances on The Quantic Soul Orchestra recordings and his show-stopping performances in their accompanying live shows.
