The CineSon All Stars, comprised of many members of Cachao’s original band, also recorded with Garcia on his own original score for The Lost City — Garcia’s film which he directed and in which he appeared. Garcia also produced and performed on numerous songs for Just the Ticket and Steal Big Steal Little.

A longtime collaborator with Arturo Sandoval, Garcia composed the song “Christmas In Conway,” the end credits to his film of the same name; produced the soundtrack with Sandoval for Garcia’s film At Middleton and its bonus DVD track “There Was A Day;” and produced and performed on Arturo Sandoval’s score and soundtrack for a film he also starred in For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story, which won the Emmy Award for best score.
