Carlos 'Patato' Valdes

CD (Universal/Pimienta 360630), Released 1993; Re-Issued 2004
Produced by Jorge Dalto & Patato
Editor's Pick:
Patato is considered the genius of melodic conga playing. This material was first recorded in 1984 & 1985, but pianist Jorge Dalto's death resulted in this project's "on hold" status. Finally, after over eight years, this Masterpiece surfaced on the Messidor label only to vanish again a few years ago.
We are delighted that it is finally available once again.
A classic.
Highly recommended. (BP, 2004-08-11)
"Worth its price in spades for the Patato/Vicentico Valdés collaboration on 'Reflexionando.' Repeat Play City!" (Phil Riggio 98/99 Catalog)
"A posthumous gift from Argentine piano legend Jorge Dalto to his beloved colleague, the irrepressible Cuban conguero Patato Valdés. Whether it be playing for Mario Bauzá or Herbie Mann, doing the 'pingüino' with Conjunto Casino or teaching Brigitte Bardot the mambo, Patato has earned his place in music history threefold. This happy-go-lucky recording from the mid-eighties may not live up to its title. But Patato is in good company, and the CD is not devoid of his sense of humor." (Nat Chediak 96/97 Catalog)
