At the height of his popularity in the late 1950s, Perez Prado turned away from his ever-popular mambos, teaming up with Shorty Rogers to create two of the most interesting exotica records of all time. VOODOO SUITE / EXOTIC SUITE combines these two great albums.
Each is an impressionistic tone poem inspired by the roots of America music. VOODOO SUITE combines Afro-Cuban rhythms with the frenzied tempos of hard bop, resulting in a virtual history of jazz that's as entertaining as it is informative. THE EXOTIC SUITE OF THE AMERICAS recalls Nelson Riddle in its pop arrangements of Dixieland, Latin American elements, and Caribbean melodies. EXOTIC SUITE is every bit as riveting as VOODO SUITE, building into a frenzied Carnival-style finale. For fans of Prado's typical mambo-rock, there are several great tracks compiled here, too, including the perky "Midnight in Jamaica" and the raunchy "Son of a Gun," as well as excellent mambo versions of jazz standards "In the Mood" and "St. James Infirmary," among others.
