Originally released in 1963, Percusiones by Mexican bandleader Gustavo Pimentel is an unbelievably groovy set of songs that certainly delivers on the album's promised percussion! Congas, vibraphone, güiro, maracas, and timbales, among other percussion instruments, drive the sound which is filled out melodically by a horn section. The album grooves on a range of Latin styles and there is a clear bossa nova influence on much of the material plus some touches of jazz. This record was clearly made with dancing in mind and it is sure to get everybody moving from the moment you set it spinning! Really fantastic stuff! Titles include "El manicero," "Nocturnal," "Granada," "Copacabana," "Bali hai," "Cielito lindo," and "Carioca."
