The El Rey album from 1962, including his first go at Oye Como Va; and the stupendous LP Tambo — with Ray Barretto and Patato Valdes — from two years previously. Essential Latin jazz.

Superlative, thrilling, real-deal big-band mambo, cha-cha and guaguanco from 1958, featuring Ray Barretto and vocalist Santos Colon. Essential Latin jazz.
