We're all so excited about you playing with your brother for the first time in a long time!

With my brother? To be honest with you, my son takes care of all my engagements, he's my agent. And he's not here now, so…

Oh! You didn't know? But if it happens it would be the first time in a long time, right?

He has his thing and I have mine. We don't see each other much, you see? But as long as I can do my show, you can put any conjunto with me and I cooperate with them in any way I can.

But would you like to play with your brother?

Honestly, I'd play with him or anybody. But he has to bring his conjunto and I have to bring mine, because our material is different.

You don't sound too excited about the whole thing. Is everything all right?

I get along with everybody. Naturally, if there were any disagreements between us, that's a personal thing I don't discuss with anybody. •
