The following picture shows us Miguel Caló, a young Alberto Podestá (who was initially using another stage name, Juan Carlos Morel, mentioned below), and several other big names from this Orchestra of the Stars, an outburst of talented musicians in the early 40s, among whom we will identify three major names.
Caló himself can be seen in the center of the group, as the man with the dark suit and the dark tie. Next to him, in the only other dark suit, is Podestá, and subsequently, the man right next to Podestá is violinist Enrique Francini. Somewhere more to the left, we discern pianist Osmar Maderna, touching someone’s arm with his right hand. Armando Pontier, a bandoneonist, can be identified as the last face on the left side, sadly neither fully nor clearly shown on this picture.
Another famous name in this orchestra, who also eventually left to form his own band, was Domingo Federico, on this photo most likely the person immediately to the left of Caló.
