Tito Rodriguez

Tito, Tito, Tito
Import CD (WS Latino 4088), Re-Issued 1989
"This has the great Cachao and the smashing cuts 'Sun Sun Babae,' 'La Toalla,' 'Descarga Cachao,' 'Boco-Boco,' 'Descarga Malanga,' and 'Tremendo Cumban.'" (Nelson Rodriguez 98/99 Catalog)
"Here Tito plays classic hits from the Palladium era. Featuring the great Cachao." (Joe Conzo with special consultant Tito Puente 96/97 Catalog)
"Tito Rodriguez was a master bandleader/vocalist whose professionalism is legendary. He frequently incorporated jazz elements into his music. Tito's bands always swung hard. This wonderful session included the great Israel "Cachao" Lopez on bass. It has two great descargas. Solid!" (Jose Rizo 96/97 Catalog)
"If you like Tito Rodriguez, you have to have this CD in your collection. I love every tune. I take this CD with me when I travel and listen to it quite a bit. 'Descarga Cachao' is one of the most played descarga tunes. Cal Tjader recorded it and we use it in our clinics and demonstrations. It has a standard bass line and coros that many musicians use as a descarga. 'Descarga De La Malanga' starts out in a 6/8 time signature then goes into a 4/4 mambo tempo. The two trumpet players take great solos and battle it back and forth with each other. They play the montuno style really well. It has the tipico early mambo style with the trumpets. So, if you're a trumpet player you should have this. 'Cosas Del Alma' is another classic bolero. I love the Tito Rodriguez sound, he had a great voice." (Poncho Sanchez and Ramon Banda 96/97 Catalog)
