Editorial Reviews

Mongorama is a 9 piece all star band led by KJazz personality Jose Rizo. They perform fresh arrangements of classic Mongo Santamaria tunes and original material inspired by this legendary conga master. Some of Mongorama participants are Grammy winners, former members of Mongo's bands or close associates. This is Latin jazz at it's highest level. The music performed is classic charanga jazz with a modern twist, satisfying both the great dancers and the very hip jazz fans.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 1, 2011
Format: MP3 Music
A bit of history: 'Ramón "Mongo" Santamaría Rodríguez (April 7, 1917 in Havana, Cuba - February 1, 2003) was an Afro-Cuban Latin jazz percussionist. He is most famous for being the composer of the jazz standard "Afro Blue," recorded by John Coltrane among others. In 1950 he moved to New York where he played with Perez Prado, Tito Puente, Cal Tjader, Fania All Stars, etc. He was an integral figure in the fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms with R&B and soul, paving the way for the boogaloo era of the late 1960s.' MONGORAMA is José Rizo's tribute to that great man of AfroCuban jazz and here the assembled group restores much of "Mongo's" legend. This is a collection of music all of the AfroCuban influence that will leave the listener dancing as well as being amazed with the quality of artistry this group offers.

The combination of instruments plays a big role in the particular sound of Mongo's music. Danilo Lozano is the music director as well as playing flute, Justo Almario is on tenor sax, Oscar Hernandez and Alberto Salas on piano, Dayren Santamaria on violin, Hubert Laws on flute, Rene Camacho on bass, and a wild assortment of percussionists - Ramon Banda, timbales, Joey De Leon and Poncho Sanchez, congas, Alfredo Ortiz, percussion. Lead vocalists are Destani Wolf (terrific 'Bubba Boogaloo'), Freddie Crespo, Adonis Puentes, and Alfredo Ortiz. But it is not so much the precision and individual contributions of these talented West Coast people that make the music so absorbing.
