MONGO SANTAMARIA - FREE SPIRIT













Mighty Mongo for Tropical Budda from 1984.
Mongo hooked back up with the great Marty Sheller for this excellent latin jazz lp which was coordinated by none other than Jack Hooke DJ extrodinaire and the man behind the Monday night salsa meets jazz sessions at the Village Gate.
Two essential cuts on this one:"Power Struggle" and "Espiritu Libre"(which has just had a reworking by Beatkonducta!)
Descarga.com wrote this:
With Bobby Sanabria, Eddie Resto, Tony Hinson, Eddie Allen, Pablo Rosario, Sam Furnace and Bob Quarantas. Includes beautiful interpretations of Marty Sheller's "MaƱana Wilson" and "Tish," Sam Furnace's "Zimbabwe," Bobby Sanabria's" Con Hache," "Espiritu Libre" by Eddie Allen and many others.Produced by Henry Montalvo and Vicente Iturbides.Highly Recommended.
Ripped @320 from original vinyl.
