Tambo Reunion, Knitting Factory, 1/27/98 pt.I

In 1973 Alegre Records put out an album by a group of young Latin musicians under the name Tambo. Directed by a very young Louie Bauzo, Tambo would be a cradle for many who would make their careers playing this music. In 1998, they celebrated their 25th anniversary with a concert at the famous Jazz emporium, the Knitting Factory in NY. Here is their dedication to Latin Jazz in general and Dizzy Gillespie in particular. The Manteca Suite was arranged by Jose Madera and is almost 17 mins. long.
