how cool is this

EMUSIC-0099A362

Mega cool parkers repetition, Corner Pocket and Pannonica done latin WOW. It's old stuff and sounds completely fresh today. If you love jazz tunes and want an interesting twist or love latin and want brilliant 'fusion' pick this one up.

They Say All Music Guide

For this particular Tito Puente recording, his exciting three-horn, three-percussion Latin jazz octet (which includes longtime saxophone soloist Mario Rivera) is joined by alto great Phil Woods on three of the eight selections, including Thelonious Monk’s “Pannonica” and “Repetition.” Such songs as “Corner Pocket,” “Carioca” and Dizzy Gillespie’s “Con Alma” sound perfectly natural in this Afro-Cuban jazz setting, and Puente (well featured on vibes and timbales) is responsible for two originals and seven of the nine arrangements. The music is danceable, adventurous and quite fun. – Scott Yanow
