RUMBA BLUES – THE MAMBO YEARS 1952-1956

RUMBA BLUES – THE MAMBO YEARS 1952-1956

£9.00

This little gem… the extensive, well-written accompanying notes could usefully be used by anyone lecturing on the subjects.
Brian Smith R2

If this collection doesn’t put an umbrella in your pina colada then you should see a doctor. There’s the genuinely hard-core instrumental Latin gems bristling with brass such as the Griffin Brothers with Griff’s Mambo, and Illinois Jacquet’s terrific sexy sax on Mambocito Mio. And if you’re thinking this might be all snake hips and exotic women’s hats piled with fruit, there are even Latin tracks from Chuck Berry, Howlin’ Wolf and Elmore James. As a collection to dance to, this is a brilliant idea. Olé! Git down and boogie…er…mambo.
