HECTOR BINGERT AND DON MENZA - EL ENCUENTRO
Hector Bingert of Uruguay joins forces with Don Menza(USA) and friends from Sweden in Stockholm for this rare piece of latin fusion on Four Leaf Clover from 1983.
This great piece of European vinyl mashes up latin roots(candomble,samba,bolero,bossa)and then blends them with a large helping of jazz.Check the thunderous "Samba Fino", the banging "Llamada Original" and "Ska Vi Dela" for dancefloor action.The intro on Samba Fino is spectacular-I remember Bob Jones playing it one night and I was up and running to the decks in seconds to find out what it was!
Bingert and Menza are on Saxes and Flute,Janne Schaffer on Guitar,Kjell Ohman on Electric Piano,Teddy Walter on Bass and Jose Luis Perez on Percussion.
Ripped at 320 from the original vinyl-no reissues.
