Candido cut sooo many great Latin records over the years, spanning a wide range of styles, we have a hard time deciding which we love the best. We like to think this may be his best album from the early part of his career, specifically because it features the master conga player amidst a tight jazz lineup, who leave him plenty of room to solo and just plain get down doing his thing. Dick Hyman’s on organ, Joe Puma’s on guitar, and Ernie Royal’s on trumpet, with George Duvivier and Charlie Persip in the rhythm section. 8 tracks in all, including “Afro Blue”, “Caravan”, “Softly But Blue”, “Blue Lou”, “Blue Prelude”, “Bongo Baby”, “Blue Dirge” and “Candido Cocktail”.
1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
