Candido – Featuring Al Cohn

LP (Item 17030) ABC, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 6

One of the jazziest Candido albums ever – a tight little 50s set that features the master congolero working with a small combo that includes Al Cohn on tenor, Dick Katz on piano, and Joe Puma on guitar! The sound is nice and stripped-down – bristling with a percussive approach to the grooves that really seems to inspire the soloists – especially Cohn, who's playing here with a tone that we didn't expect! The session jams along nicely throughout – and tracks include "Perdido", "Candi Bar", "Mambo Inn", "Candido's Camera", and "Indian Summer". (In nice shape!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Aqui Se Habla Espanol/Spanish Spoken Here
Roulette, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Nicely swingin' LP put together by the man who supervised some of Stan Kenton's best afro-cuban sessions. Richards is one of the most swinging, hard hitting bandleaders to come out of the post-swing era, and his handling of Latin material is always filled with a lot of fire, and a good sense of ...
