Today 1922 Mongo Santamaria was born

Ramón "Mongo" Santamaría (April 7, 1922 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. His 1963 hit rendition of Herbie Hancock's Watermelon Man was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998. 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.

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 080407
The file is a small 30MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that.

>>
The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
 
thank you very very much! Mongo was the greatest conga player in the world!!

But I think there are 2 songs missing:
Manha de carnaval,
Just say goodbye

Can you add them, please?

Stefan
 
Stefan, you are right.
But these are just what I have from this LP. So sorry, cannot add (otherwise I would have done so of course).
 
Just found your blog. Some interesting stuff! Keep up the good work! I`ve bookmarked you. Thanks for your work!
