A decade after Afro-Cuban rhythms set the jazz world on fire, we find the maestro playing the Concord, a popular lakeside resort 90 miles north of New York City. So it is a “tourist” album, probably given away or sold as a souvenir. The liners and photos tell as much about where to find swimming director Buster Crabbe as Machito. For popular Latin, it has the top standards, as well as a few Machito surprises. The former includes obligatory covers of Perez Prado’s smashes “Guaglione” and “Patricia,” plus cha cha cha counterparts “Cocktails for Two” and “Rico Vacilon.” Surprises include Johnny Conquet’s “Estacy” and Italian-Chipmunks-bandleader Renato Corasone’s “Torero.” One title is particularly Afro-Cuban, “El Aji Caribe.” It is an unusual album even for Machito.

1 thought on “Machito & His Afro-Cuban Orchestra – Vacation At The Concord (1959/2004)

  1. Cada verano desde mediados de 1940 hasta finales de 1960, por un período de
    22 años, Machito y su banda tocaban por un periodo de diez semanas en el Concord
    Resort Hotel en las montañas Catskill. Este Album de Machito “Vacaciones en el Concord” se publicó
    en 1958 como una experiencia representativa del desempeño de una noche, pero no
    se registró en el complejo.
