Machito Goes Memphis

Hold On, I'm Comin'
Machito Goes Memphis
Machito A Pioneer Of Latin-American Music
RCA Victor LSP-3944

From the back cover: When you think of the names of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, you think of what their drive and determination meant to the birth of this great nation. Therefore, when we think of Machito, we must realize what his "pioneering" has done for the ever-popular Latin-American music of today. Machito, one of the first real pioneers of Latin music, organized his band in 1940, and since then has never ceased to amaze his public with his Afro-Cuban influences and the fine, stylish contributions displayed in all of his 60-some-odd albums.
