Jack 'Mr Bongo' Costanzo - the man that spawned the name for the label nonetheless! American born bandleader, composer, conducter and dancer nicknamed Mr Bongo for popularising the instrument. 'Jive Samba' is taken from his 'Latin Percussion With Soul' album recorded with Gerry Woo, released on Tico in 1968. Columbian Al Escobar covers 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. Both tracks previously unreleased on 7".
