Mambo Mongo

CD (Item 614117) Chesky, 1993 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Doesn't Mongo have about 3 albums with this title? Whatever the case, this one's a great set – recorded in the early 90s in New York, a straight ahead Latin jazz session that's a nice little back-to-basics session! Players include Dave Valentin, Hubert Laws, and Johnny Almendra – and the set was conducted by Marty Sheller, who always knows how to give Mongo a groove! Arrangements are by Sheller, Hilton Ruiz, and Eddie Allen – and tracks include "La Mongolla", "Azteca", "Are They Only Dreams", and "Dark Before The Dawn". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Proof that Tito Puente's later home at Concord Records was always a mighty nice fit – a move to a west coast outlet, which couldn't have been easy for the legendary New Yorker – but a place that always gave him a chance to cut no-nonsense Latin jazz sets like this! The group's got a ... CD
