PMB203: Bongos A-Go-Go (Ray Barretto, Les Baxter, Terry Snyder, Jack Burger & Danny Gould, Jack “Bongo” Burger, Serge Gainsbourg, Sammy Davis Jr, Jack Costanzo, Chaino, Mr. Ho’s Orchestrotica)

PMB203: Bongos A-Go-GoGet your fingers loosened up, dear listener, as we bring you a frenzied fiesta of bongo drumming. Having said that, as you will discover, in the right hands the world of the bongo can in fact be a seductively smooth experience.

This week’s theme was suggested by listener Randy Poe, who was responsible for the splendid Gene Rains reissue earlier this year which prompted heated debate on the show.

We encourage you to try playing along with the tracks in this week’s show, though we have to ask ourselves, will you be able to keep up?
