  Escobar & His Orchestra - Tighten Up  
  The eighth title in their Latin 45's series:

Jack ‘Mr Bongo’ Costanzo - the man that spawned the name for our label nonetheless! American born bandleader, composer, conducter and dancer nicknamed Mr Bongo for popularising the instrument.

Costanzo played with Peggy Lee, Perez Prado, Frank Sinatra and many many more. Clearly a friend of the stars, he taught the likes of Marlon Brando, Betty Gable and Carolyn Jones to play bongo’s.

‘Jive Samba’ is taken from his ‘Latin Percussion With Soul’ album recorded with Gerry Woo, released on Tico in 1968.

Previously unreleased on 7”.

Columbian Al Escobar’s cover of Archie Bell & The Drells classic ‘Tighten Up’. Escobar worked with Tito Puente and many other latin greats whilst in the US.

‘Tighten Up’ was a popular track in the Northern Soul scene in the UK, originally released on their hard to find El Sonido Moderno De Al Escobar’ LP on Tico in 1967. This was released previously under the artist name 'The Modern Sound Of Al Escobar' on Tico but is very hard to come by now.
