Prez - Prez Prado
RCA Victor LPM-1556
Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.
From the back cover: In "Perez" two sides of the fabulous "King of the Mambo" are presented. One features Prado interpreting Latin rhythms as only he and his musical aggregation can. The other side of Prado is not as familiarly known but is sure to be equally appreciated, for it reveals that Perez Prado is a jazz impresario of the first order.
Terrific cover art and tight sounding set. The "jazzy" B side does not sound stylistically much different from the A side.
Also released by RCA in 1958 on tape.
