Recorded in 1960 on a visit to Havana on a break from his stint with the vibes player Cal Tjader, this outstanding double-CD set of Cuban jazz features the master conguero Mongo Santamaria in his element performing with some of the island's finest musicians on a selection of timeless, irresistibly danceable instrumentals. Also included is a fascinatingly varied set of percussion and vocal Santeria chants to various deities, as well as examples of Colombian and Mexican rhythms.
