Originally released in 1965, Eddie Palmieri’s MOZAMBIQUE is an excellent early album from the Latin jazz icon. The title refers to a rhythmic style (rather than the African country) that synthesizes mambo and conga. Naturally, the album is heavy on percussion, with timbales and congas leading the charge. Ismale Quintana provides the vocals, and Palmieri’s piano work dazzles as usual on tunes such as “Estamos Chao” and “Pobre Pedro.” The recording was re-released in 2008 with crisply remastered sound.
