by Juan Pablo Torres

Juan Pablo Torres Morell (August 17, 1946–April 17, 2005) was a Cuban trombonist, bandleader, arranger and producer. He was the director of Algo Nuevo and a member of Irakere, two of the leading exponents of songo and Afro-Cuban jazz in the 1970s and 1980s. He has also directed various Cuban supergroups such as Estrellas de Areito and Cuban Masters. He has been called "one of the best trombone players in the Latin-jazz community of the 1990s".




Numbers I've got by the dozen 
Everyone's uncle and cousin
But I can't live without buzzin'
Pennsylvania Six, Five Thousand
I've got a sweety I know there
Someone who sets me aglow there
Gives me the sweetest "hello there"
Pennsylvania Six, Five Thousand
We don't say "how are you"
And very seldom ask "what's new?"
Instead we start and end each call with
"Baby confidentially I love you"
Maybe it sounds a bit funny
When I'm away from my honey
Here's what I do with my money
Pennsylvania Six, Five Thousand

Pennsylvania Six, Five Thousand
We don't say "how are you"
And very seldom ask "what's new?"
Instead we start and end each call with
"Baby confidentially I love you"
Maybe it sounds a bit funny
When I'm away from my honey
Here's what I do with my money
