In 1965, Kako organized an 18-piece "after hours orchestra", which was virtually the Alegre All-Stars, for Tributo A Noro, a tribute to his personal friend Noro Morales, who had died the year before. This involved Al Santiago, Charlie Palmieri and Héctor Rivera "kidnapping" musicians after the dances had finished and transporting them to the studio for a session beginning at 5 am. In addition to Kako, Charlie and Héctor, the recording involved Israel "Cachao" Lpez (bass), José "Chombo" Silva (tenor saxophone), Louie Ramírez (vibes), Joe Quijano (bongo), Chivirico (vocals) and Osvaldo "Chi Hua Hua" Martínez (giro/gourd scraper).--
