Afro Can Can - Jack Costanzo

Snake Dance
Afro Can Can
Version Of Cole Porter's Can-Can
Jack Costanzo
Producer: Felix Slatkin
Cover Design: Pate/Francis & Associates
Liberty Records LRP 3137 (monaural)

From the back cover: Percussionists in general, and Jack Costanzo in particular, have become very attached to the music of Cole Porter. His melodies contain wonderfully varied and interesting rhythm patterns which lend themselves to a creative interpretation by the drummer.

In planning this album, Jack called in three fine arrangers who fully understand the complexities of a Afro-Cuban musical interoperation: Jay Corre, Paul Lopez and Rubin Leon.

As a feat of engineering, Afro Can-Can will delight hi-fi and stereo fans. The percussive sounds and wide range of tonal color make it a "natural" with which to display fine equipment.
