Peter Maiden - 2012-San José Jazz

The Pacific Mambo Orchestra

This big band had a great sound that brought memories of the big bands of the mambo era. Listening, it sounded so good I was wishing I had seen Tito Puente at the Palladium in New York back in the day.  The group is co-led by Christian Tumalan and Steffen Kuehn.  They played music from their new, first CD.
