MONGO SANTAMARIA - MIGHTY MONGO
Heavy heavy heavy descarga session from way back when Mongo was still killing 'em dead and hadn't sold out to lame soul covers and boogaloo nonsense.Features the ferocious "Bacoso "which develops into a scorching percussion battle mid way through and the storming "Descarga at the Blackhawk". Interestingly enough one of Joao Donatos first u.s.recordings on which he plays both piano and trombone - he contributes "Bluchanga" .One of the great latin lps of the 60s.
Here's the track listing
