DAVE PIKE And His Orchestra : Montuna Orita (1964)

As the title suggests, this is Latin-tinged jazz by vibist Dave Pike. There are a number of classic jazz and Latin musicians featured here, including Willie Bobo, Hubert Laws, and "Patato" Valdes. This track also featured a VERY young Chick Corea on piano, one of his first recording sessions.
