Mongo Santamaria

Dawn (Amanecer) (Original Issue: Limited Quantities)
CD (Vaya 61), Released 1977; Re-Issued 2004
Editor's Pick:
[Only a few left in stock. Once it's gone, it's gone. - Ed. ]
Very limited quantities!
What a great, funky, 1977 New York session this was! With Mongo in top form, this jazzy groove-saturated gem features smart original compositions arrangements by Marty Sheller, Bill O'Connell, Bob Porcelli and others. There's also one of the best conga-driven versions of Manteca (Chano Pozo/Dizzy GIllespie) on record. Mr. Santamaria is a simply a giant on this. Dawn also features Steve Berrios, Julito Collazo, Mike Di Martino and other top players. It's mostly instrumental, with the welcomed exception of Joe Gallardo's pristine and ethereal "Amanecer" which features Rubén Baldes and Adalberto Santiago on vocals. Wow.
A classic. Highly Recommended. (BP, 2014-04-09)
