have mentioned being big fans of latin music.
Last week I picked up two incredibly amazing Tito Puente albums: "Top
Percussion" and "Tambo." On the former the AFRO outweighs the CUBAN. It is
mostly percussion and call and response vocals and chants. It blows my mind.
"Tambo" definitely focuses on the percussion and has some really interesting
polyrhythms, horn arrangements and vibe playing by Tito himself. The quality
of the recordings in amazing as well. They are both part of RCA's "living
stereo" series from the late '50s-early '60s. If anyone familiar with these
recordings can recommend similar recordings please send them along. Thanks a

Peace Out,
