Alan Geik, producer of the great new Rhino compilation MAS MAMBO MANIA! / THE KINGS AND QUEENS OF MAMBO, will be Tom's guest on Cafe LA Sunday, April 1st, @ 1 p.m. No, this is not an April fool's joke. The new compilation features music from Machito, Celia Cruz, Perez Prado, and other top stars from mambo's golden era.
Geik is a veteran radio and album producer, and has been involved with every aspect of the tropical Latin music scene. Mambo Mania, a perfect compilation for those who have enjoyed the Buena Vista Social Club, features classic Latin music from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. What makes it different from the umpteen different Latin compilations is Geik's vast experience and peerless good taste.
MAS MAMBO MANIA! has just been released by Rhino Records. (http://www.almadelbarrio.com/allengeik/)
