Mongo Santamaria • La Bamba



One good hit deserves a remake, so Columbia had Mongo Santamaria redo his breakthrough record "Watermelon Man" on his second LP for the label. Indeed, it is this brighter, better-recorded version that we generally hear on the radio nowadays instead of the Battle original. Even better, though, are "Fatback" and the wildly swinging workout on "La Bamba" that kicks off the album, to which you can imagine the foxy blonde model on the cover dancing the boogaloo. Marty Sheller’s charging arrangements and trumpet are in the driver’s seat of this sports car with the Mongo engine, and Hubert Laws has a ball in his flute and tenor sax solos. Few records embodied the go-go spirit of the ’60s as well as this Latin jazz album. — Richard S. Ginell

Un buen éxito merece un remake, por lo que Columbia hizo que Mongo Santamaria rehiciera su innovador disco "Watermelon Man" en su segundo LP para el sello. De hecho, es esta versión más brillante y mejor grabada que generalmente escuchamos en la radio hoy en día en lugar del original de Battle. Aún mejor, sin embargo, son "Fatback" y el ejercicio de "La Bamba" que da inicio al álbum, en el que puedes imaginarte la modelo rubia astuta en la portada bailando boogaloo. Los arreglos de carga y la trompeta de Marty Sheller están en el asiento del conductor de este auto deportivo con el motor Mongo, y Hubert Laws tiene una bola en su flauta y sus solos de saxo tenor. Pocos discos encarnan el espíritu go-go de los años 60, así como este álbum de jazz latino. - Richard S. Ginell
