Mi Amigo, Machito

LP (Item 5885) Tico, 1958 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 6

By the end of the 50s, Machito was a king of the Latin scene – and had an ability to both groove hard, and lay down sophisticated arrangements that were a lot stronger than those of other throwaway cha cha cha groups. This album's one of his best from the era – and it includes lots of nice cuts, like "Cooking Cooking", "Santa Cruz", "Cathy Cha Cha Cha", "Sunny Ray", and "Rumba Ace". (Cover has some wear and a mostly split bottom seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
