THE SALSA ALL STARS












Salsa All Stars for Salsa Records from 1968.
Charlie Palmieri - Piano ; Cachao Lopez - Bass ; Kako - Timbales ; Puchi Boulong, Victor Paz, Dave Gonzalez, Lionel Sanchez - Trumpets ; Mario Rivera, Richie Meza, Morty Lazzar - Saxophones ; Pupi Legarretta - Flute ; Louie Ramirez, Frankie Malabe, Johnny 'Dandy' Rodriguez, Tito Jimenez, Cortijito, Pedro Perdomo, Chickie Perez - Percussion ; Azuquita, Chamaco Ramirez - Vocals ; Hector La Voe, Yayo El Indio, Santos Colon, Chivirico Davila - Coros

Super heavy descarga session produced and directed by Al Santiago(who else?)which is essentially The Alegre All Stars working under the Salsa All Stars moniker for Mary Lou International's Salsa division after Santiago's Alegre label went bust.
Two monster long descarga jams on this one "Descarga De Cueros Y Vientos" and "Descarga En K" which are supplemented by 3 more straight ahead salsa cuts.
Killer!
