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.

Warner, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first!
