The finest moments of one of history`s most influential Afro-Cuban musicians, percussionist and singer Chano Pozo, are collected on this DOUBLE-LP. Though he died too young at the age of 33, he changed the face of Latin music and jazz forever. These classic recordings date back to the 1940s.
Since much of Chano Pozo`s greatest work exists only on tough-to-find 78s or long out-of-print LPs and European CDs, Grosso!`s has done us all a great service with Rumbero Mayor – collecting the legendary conguero`s important 40s recordings with Cuarteto Caney, Arsenio Rodríguez, Orquesta Casino de la Playa, Dizzy Gillespie, Machito, Miguelito Valdes, James Moody, Orquesta Hermanos Palau, Xavier Cugat in one explosive 28-track double vinyl package. Pressed on 140 gram vinyl and issued in limited edition of 500 copies with liner notes contributed by DJ/collector Pablo "Bongohead" Yglesias, you`d better plan on grabbing Rumbero Mayor soon after it`s release on June 19th.
