Irving Fields: Lessons In Longevity

Pianist and composer Irving Fields was born to a Jewish family in Brooklyn in 1915. When he traveled to Cuba as a young man he fell in love with Latin music, and became one of the foremost interpreters of American-style rumba in the early 20th century. Today he’s still kicking – and performing 6 nights a week in New York City. Fields shares with us his lessons of longevity.
