Mazacote Live at El Rio – 1997

Late Night at the Pelican Cafe

#salsa, #live music, #mazacote, #el rio

Need to get that feeling like you are at El Rio on Sunday afternoon? People everywhere dancing and having a good time? Both bars are open.

From an analog cassette tape positioned on the floor in front of the trombone player. What it would sound like if you where a fly on the wall at “your dive” El Rio in the 1990’s. You hear the band getting the charts ready. The banter of Ray Martinez and Louis Romero. The noise of the crowd. Close you eyes. The coronavirus pandemic will be over someday.
