Alfredito Linares - Chocolate (LP)

Alfredo "Sabor" Linares. Born in Lima, Peru. Recorded some of the best afro latin jazz and dance music ever, on the MAG label, in the late 60s. Two solo LPs and piano and arrangements work on both Coco Lagos descargas and el Combo de Pepe ( brilliantly re-released on Lazarus). That would have been enough. Moves to Cali in the early 70s and has second musical life, by this time it's called salsa, and he kills it. This is "Chocolate" from the Salsa y Sabor LP (ca. 1974). (B) Listen
