"Mambo con conga is MOZAMBIQUE", released on TICO in '65, is Palmieri's best work, after "El Sonido Nuevo". Although his previous albums are also quite good ("El Molestoso", "Echando P'alante", "Azucar Pa'Ti"), Mozambique's sound is crisper, the conga and timbal is more prominent, Castro's flute is impressive, and Quintana's vocals have improved. The album covers rhythm styles such as mozambique, cha cha, guaracha, and comparsa.
