Charlie Palmieri and his orchestra, with Victor Velasquez on vocals.
A classic album from one of the best Latin jazz pianist ever! Charlie Palmieri at his peak with a great band and production by Bobby Marin.
Classic mambos and descargas from a period in New York rich in salsa dura!
A true musical genius Charlie Palmieri was known as: The Giant of the Keyboards. Charlie only cut one album for the Mary Lou label and what an album it was! This music is what Charlie is remembered best for, hard hitting salsa with lots of solos on piano and a band featuring the cream of latin musicians in New York.
'... Charlie Palmieri has proven once again that he can do no wrong. The true connoisseur of fine Latin music will listen to this recording and find the urge to dance unable to resist. ... Take this album to the place you dig, play it on a good system, kick off your shoes, and let your mind soak up the best of King Charles - the best in Latin sound.'
