2021 repress on Honey Pie Records from Mongo`s 1959 album.
Recorded in 1959 at the height of the Latin Jazz Era, This is Mongo Santamaria`s second album for Fantasy Records. A deep and fascinating investigation of Afro-Cuban roots run by the great percussionist and a quite large group featuring Paul Horn on flute, Emil Richards on vibraphone, Al McKibbons on bass and of course lots of multicolored percussion and vocals split by a bunch of masters players including Armando Peraza, Francisco Aguabella and Willie Bobo.The album opens with the redolent melody of "Afro-Blue" one of his most beautiful compositions which later became a classic Jazz standards with historical renditions by the likes of John Coltrane, Abbey Lincoln and Oscar Brown Jr.
