Patato, the history-making pioneer of the modern Latin three-conga style, is the most melodic and the most African of all the Cuban congueros I’ve heard. You’ll never hear the gorgeous attack and resonance of his congas better than here. We put him front-and-center, accompanied by a quintet of Latin horns. Bound For Sound drooled over this one: “…another crazy, zany, free-flow musical expression…Just your basic eclectic combination of Latin percussion, South American rhythms, jazz brass and funk baritone sax…Wonderfully rhythmic and infectious…so sonically superior it’s scary…Recording of Merit.” (#04632)
