CHARLIE SANTIAGO & EDDIE MONTALVO - DRUM SOLOS VOL 3
Eddie Montalvo & Charlie Santiago for Latin Percussion Ventures from 1978.
Eddie Montalvo & Charlie Santiago - Conga, Timbales,Bongo;Gilbert Colon - Electric Piano;Jose Santiago - Bass
The mighty Martin Cohen produced and master minded this stripped down set of tracks that was issued primarily as a percussion instruction album but it works well as a raw Latin jazz session as well.The 4 cuts on side 1 feature a complex rhythm section with solos while on side 2 they are repeated minus solos for the listener to practice and play against.Great stuff for latin beatheads and burgeoning percussionists alike.The album also features the old Ballroom banger "El Bollinski En D7".
