Voodoo Suite

Voodoo Suite
Plus Six All-Time Greats
Perez Prado
Shorty Rogers
RCA Victor LPM-1101

Excellent set available on CD. Side one is one continuous track that blends hypnotic tribal chanting, ritualistic drumming and big band jazz. The recording has the rare power to transport me to exotica worlds.

Great Afro-Cuban Mambo tracks are to be found on the B side.

Perze Prado is commonly referred to as the "King Of The Mambo". Voodoo Suite was the first LP he recorded for RCA. He recorded for RCA from 1955 through 1965.

Shorty Rogers is also an interesting character and his bio can be found on Spaceagepop.
