Description


Born in Cuba in 1922, Mongo Santamaría was a percussionist who became widely established as a Latin jazz and boogaloo artist. He rose to prominence with his cover of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man." The 1976 album, Sofrito, features Santamaría on the congas in the Afro-fusion jazz album as the band's leader.

The VMP edition of this record is limited to 1,000 copies and is pressed on 1LP, 180g Sala Roja Red vinyl at Memphis Record Pressing. The reissue of Sofrito is remastered by Kevin Gray of Cohearent Audio and will arrive in a single direct-to-board, foil numbered jacket.
