Ninapinta and His Bongos

and Congas


"Ninapinta and His Bongos and Congas" features 12 Latin Jazz instrumentals of hits from the '60s.  The CD features Ninapinta and renowned jazz musicians Clark Terry, Ernie Royal, Artie Kaplan, Willy Rodriguez, Joe Grimm, George Devens, Gary Chester, George Duvivier and Jimmy Wisner.


The following was taken from the 1966 LP:


"Whether you're a member of the dance set or just a good listener, whether you're a fan of rock and roll, jazz, or any other kind of popular music, whether you're a teenager or collegian, whether you're a white-collar worker or tradesman, whether you belong to the 'jet set' or to some other select crowd, you'll find a generous helping of all these sounds.  This is music for everyone's taste, the kind of music to make you forget your troubles and be happy."


There is little to be said, but there is much to be heard.  For a unique musical experience, this is your invitation to join Ninapinta, his bongos and congas, where the action and the music are best."


The songs on the CD include:  "Help," "I Can't Help Myself," "Hang On Sloopy," "Stop In The Name of Love," "Downtown," "Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter," "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "The In Crowd," "You've Got Your Troubles I've Got Mine," "A Lover's Concerto," "1-2-3" and "It Ain't Me Babe".


All songs are in stereo and have been digitally restored and digitally mastered.  


This rare CD is presented by John Madara through That Philly Sound, which is dedicated to the music that came out of Philadelphia during the '50s and '60s.  All of the songs were produced by John Madara & David White.  Madara & White also wrote and produced such timeless classics as "At The Hop" and "Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay" (Danny and The Juniors), "The Fly" (Chubby Checker), "You Don't Own Me," (Leslie Gore) and "1-2-3" (Len Barry, who also co-wrote the song with Madara & White).
