Mongo Santamaria

Afro Roots ****
CD (Prestige 24018 (OS6)), Released 1958;
Reviews:
" 'Afro Roots' is an essential disc of incredible Afro-Cuban drumming and rumba. Mongo brought together an impressive assemblage of master musicians: Francisco Aguabella, Willie Bobo, Al McKibbon, Armando Peraza, Emil Richards, Chombo Silva, Carlos Vidal, and Cal Tjader. 'Timbales y Bongo' is a three man show with Aguabella, Bobo and Mongo as a trio.....incredible." (Jose Rizo 98/99 Catalog)
"Mongo made his mark blending African-American jazz and funk with Afro-Cuban rhythms. 'Afro Roots' shines as an example of Mongo's genius, plus the awesome talents of Armando Peraza, Francisco Aguabella, Willie Bobo, Chombo Silva, Paul Horn and Al McKibbon." (David Pe˝alosa 94/95 Catalog)
"This CD is a re-issue of two great LPs combined (Mongo and Yamb˙). This is Mongo fresh from Cuba with some of the greatest percussionists that ever lived. For those days the recording sounds great. A treasure." (Rachel Faro and Sammy Figueroa 94/95 Catalog)
