Tambo - Tito Puente

Tito Puente
Produced by Marty Gold
Recorded in Webster Hall, New York City
Recording Engineer: Bob Simpson
RCA Victor LPM-2257

Tunes are available from online vendors, but apparently only by the piece as a part of various "collections" rather than as a complete "album". Presented here to share the cover art.

A masterwork of rhythm styled to capture the attention of period "exotica" fans.

From Billboard - January 9, 1961: Drums and bongos provide an exciting tempo for Puente's exuberant ork treatments of dramatic jungle-flavored themes. The exotic lineup includes "Witch Doctor's Nightmare," "Voodoo Dance At Midnight," "Call Of The Jungle Birds" and "Dance Of The Headhunters." Album should appeal to pop sound-LP fans, as well as Puente's loyal Latin-American Buyers.
