Orquesta Riverside were a Cuban musical group that became one of the most acclaimed Cuban orchestras of the 1940s and 50s. The orchestra was formed in the late '30s, and in the beginning was directed by local musician Enrique González Mantici. In 1947, that honor was taken by saxophone player Pedro Vila. During the '50s, Orquesta Riverside's Latin jazz and Afro-Cuban rhythms were celebrated throughout Latin America.
