ONE MORE TIME: Joe Garcia: The Music of Mongo Santamaria
September 2, 2020 @ 6:30 PM
Recorded Dec. 15, 2017
Andrew Gross-saxophone, Ioannis Goudelis-piano, Bob Lashier-bass, Dom Moio-drums, Joe Garcia-percussion
Mongo Santamaría was a rumba quinto master and an Afro-Cuban Latin jazz percussionist, most famous for his composition, “Afro Blue“, recorded by John Coltrane. 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. His 1963 hit rendition of Herbie Hancock‘s “Watermelon Man” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. This show is an authentic interpretation of Santamaria’s music.
