5.0 out of 5 stars Afro Cuban Classic
From the first note of the opening track Afrodisiac you know you are in for a musical delight.

Then you check out the band line up and see JJ Johnson, Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, Cecil Payne, Oscar Pettiford, Art Blakey and Carlos Patato Valdes and you know you have found something very special.

Having a slight bent for afro-cuban sounds I thought I couldn't miss with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars AFRO-CUBAN, 30 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Afro Cuban [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Originally released in 1955 as a 10 inch EP this is a definitive recording from trumpeter Kenny Dorham, the main track Afrodesia superbly fuses the Be Bop of North America with rhythms of Cuba. An essential purchase for Jazz collectors.
