Jose Mangual - Buyu (1977)

For all latin percussions lovers, here's an Lp recorded by percussionist José Mangual in 1977 tainted with latin jazz and funk on "Black & Brown Boogie". "Dreamy" is a beautiful latin ballad. "Mai Kinshasa"'s slow and intriguing introduction sets the basis of a great rythmic piece of inspired salsa groove all along. Like the rest of the whole album.

Musicians :
José Mangual : Bongo, Guiro, Cowbell, Tamborim - Carlos Valdez: Conga, Tamborin - Bobby Rodriguez : Bass - Luis Ortiz : Trumpet, Synthetizer - Dick Meza : Tenor Sax, Flute - Jimmy Knepper : Trombone - Keith O'Quinn : Trombone - Artie Azenszar : Piano - Rubens Bassini : Pandiera, Cowbell, Tamborin


1. Mai Kinshasa
2. Dreamy
3. Chinatown
4. Summit
5. More
6. Black & Brown Boogie
7. Sunrise PRince
8. Bamba A Puerto Rico
