Description
Bronx-born timbalero and bandleader Orlando Marín has been a part of New York's Latin music scene since his mid-teens when he formed his !rst band with vocalist Joe Quijano and pianist Eddie Palmieri. By the age of eighteen, Marín was leading his own orchestra. At a time when competition was strong and the top Latin bandleaders all battled for the title "Mambo King," Marín built a reputation for having one of the tightest dance bands in the city. On Que Chévere, Orlando Marín and His Orchestra play a mix of up-tempo mambos, guaguancós, and son montunos. The release of this Alegre original from the Fania archives is testament to the fact that great Latin music is timeless.
