Alegre All Stars-Best Of...Latin Descargas '60s 2LP
Alegre All Stars --
Best Of The Alegre All Stars . . .
new reissue double LP
Slamming Latin from one of the grooviest combos of the 60s -- the Alegre All Stars, one of the first American groups to jam in the descarga mode created on the Cuban scene! During the early 60s, Alegre Records had the genius idea of getting together some of the strongest instrumental talents on the New York scene, and letting them open up in a relaxed studio setting that was quite different than the more tightly-crafted Latin sessions that were the norm for the time. The format proved to be an instant hit, and let players like Charlie Palmieri, Kako, Orlando Marin, Jose Chombo Silva, Willie Rosario, and others take off on longer tracks with plenty of space to jam. This double-length collection brings together a good number of the best tracks from the group's first 4 legendary albums -- a set list that features a bit of vocals, but mostly carries a strong showcase on the instrumental talents of the combo. Titles include "Ay Camino Y Ven", "Soy Feliz", "Almendra", "El Sopon", "Sono Sono", "Guajira En F", "Consuelate", "Rareza Del Siglo", "Los Dandies", "Clo Clo Ki Ki Ri Ki", "Manteca", and "Se Acabo Lo Que Se Daba".
