Such admirable loyalty bonds people together so the supporters exchanged applause at the end and, during the game, formed simultaneous congas
in the stands.
Back in the '50s, when it seemed half the pop tunes on the radio had "cha-cha-cha" in the chores, choreographers knew Latin dancing was de rigueur in shows--a conga
in Wonderful Town, a cha-cha for Bells Are Ringing, a mambo for Damn Yankees.
Just listen to the fun these guys (Pancho Sanchez, vocals, congas
, timbales, and percussion; David Torres, piano; Ramon Banda, timbales and chekere; Tony Banda, bass, vocals, and chekere; Jose Rodriguez, bongos, chekere, and congas
; Sal Cracchiolo, trumpet and flugelhorn; Scott Martin, saxophones and flute; Francisco Torres, trombone; and Mike Witman, baritone sax) have as they tear into Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man," blowing and banging and tearing the joint up.
The CD starts with a spoken declaration by Gallego accompanied by the "tumbao" of the congas
as he narrates the story, the essence, the respect, the pride and the life of the "COCOROCO", recorded at Estudios V.
He rearranged classics and modernized the music with timbales, congas
Jesse put the band together in Hawaii, adding violin, bass, congas
and 3-part harmony to his lead vocal, guitar and ukulele creating unique tropical arrangements for his classic songs.
