Product Description

With the completion of this fabulous Afro-Cuban/ jazz project, Mongo Santamaria once again takes his place among the "Mambo Kings". Consistent with tradition, Mongo has surrounded himself with a tight working band of some of the most talented young musicians on the scene today, highlighted by noted veteran flutist Hubert Laws and Valentin. Using material and instrumentation in a "typical" latin contex , Mongo and friends combine these beautifully arranged comparsas, gua guanco, son montuno, and 6/8 rhythms adding tasteful jazz elements and brilliant solo work that turns "typical" to "spectacular".
