Perez Prado - Pops and Prado (1959)



Soon the world of popular music cocked an ear. Perez Prado started climbing like the ripping trumpets in his orchestra, and he's been soaring eve since.

And there's another added attraction - the electric organ. For this album, both the Conn and Hammond organs were used. Conn can be heard on Ida, Sweet As Apple Cider; Hammond on Heigh-Ho, Yes Sir, That's My Baby and Taking a Chance on Love; and both are heard on Carolina in the Morning, You're Driving Me Crazy!, Paper Doll and If You Knew Susie.

In addition to the organ, the instrumentation also includes Prado's piano, bass, percussion, two drummers, one trombonist, four reeds and five superb trumpets. The master's hand has not lost its touch. The stunning brass cascades that make the hackles rise are here, along with that concise, but pulsing, Latin beat that throbs with almost hypnotic intensity.
