If you want to hear some seriously heavyweight latin jazz meets bugalu from the early 60s this is an essential recording - Mongo on fire with his band which includes Marty Sheller, Pat Patrick (from Sun Ra's Arkestra), Bobby Capers, legendary percussionist Chihuahua and more. Very tight and smokin!

Original LP is 1990 pressing
