Concord Records introduces a series of high-energy and festive CDs that'll turn any gathering into an Instant Party. Five of the biggest names in jazz-Latin jazz legends Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria, conguero Poncho Sanchez, big band swinger Gene Harris and timeless hipster Mel Tormé-kick off this 100-percent-guaranteed-for-fun collection that features handpicked tracks from each artists' most celebratory releases. In other words, the Instant Party series of CDs can get the party started and keep it pulsating throughout the night. And the instructions are easy to follow-just spin and enjoy!

Tito Puente brings his fiery percussion and blazing timbales to the Instant Party series. A non-stop mix of mesmerizing mambos and charismatic cha cha chas, Instant Party showcases both Puente originals and beloved jazz standards. Highlights from this GRAMMY® Award-winning legend include his signature classic "Oye Como Va," the 1949 "Ran Kan Kan" and Chick Corea's "Spain." His contagious musical energy and remarkably fresh sounds will light the fire at any fiesta.

Cuban music legend Mongo Santamaria slaps the conga drums to captivating rhythms in his Instant Party collection. His unparalleled style and sound is captured on 11 celebratory tracks, ranging from mambos to socas. The master conguero reigns supreme with a heated Latin jazz version of John Lennon/Paul McCartney's "Day Tripper" and smooth groove classics like "Juan Jose" and "Mother Jones." The collection's soulful horns, passionate ensemble playing, fiery solos and tropical percussion provide a playful punch line for every partygoer.

For a fun and sophisticated spin on any party, Mel Tormé's classic hip factor is the answer. His velvety smooth vocals and dry sense of humor never go out of style and will continue to delight in this latest release. The distinct collection begins with stylish collaborations with swinging jazz pianist George Shearing, including the punchy "I'm Hip" and "Shine on Your Shoes." The mix then moves into big band numbers like "Cow Cow Boogie" and "Sweet Georgia Brown." Boasting 14 of his timeless classics, Tormé's Instant Party is a necessity for any get together.

Few sounds are more celebratory and life-affirming than those of Gene Harris' ten fingers coaxing every ounce of soul, blues and funk out of the ivories. Some of the legendary pianist's most relentless feel-good tracks are all right here, in one party-ready CD. From the in-the-pocket funk of "Old Funky Gene's" to the deeply-grooving blues anthem "Down Home Blues," each tune in his Instant Party collection is an undeniable declaration that it's time to party.

The propulsive, percussive sounds of Poncho Sanchez have fueled parties from coast to coast and around the globe for over 25-years. Indeed, the GRAMMY® Award-winning conguero's potent merging of Latin grooves, jazz, soul and a celebratory attitude have made his music some of the most fun and festive rhythms you can find anywhere. Now the best of Poncho's most party-hardy tracks are conveniently collected for partygoers in one, easy-to-use CD.

Look for the Instant Party series in stores over the summer-perfect for any party or celebration from birthdays and anniversaries to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
