Live At The Red Garter Vol. 1
In 1968, Masucci and popular Latin music/jazz DJ Symphony Sid talked Red Garter promoter Jack Hooke into putting on a series of nights with the Fania musicians, but to broaden the appeal of the concerts and records, a host of guest stars were added to the bill. Live At the Red Garter reads like a who's who of Afro-Cuban and Puerto Rican music in the late 1960s! Special guest stars include the mambo king Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri on piano and timbalero/sonero Jimmy Sabater from the million selling Joe Cuba Sextet. This groundbreaking show was the first live recording of the Fania All Stars in a club setting that brought the heat and the sound of the Red Garter to the world.
